Marshawn Lynch fined $100,000 for not talking to reporters

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was fined a total of $100,000 by the NFL for not talking to reporters.

That includes $50,000 for not talking to reporters on Sunday and an additional $50,000 for not complying with reporters during last season.

“Marshawn Lynch has been fined $50,000 for violating the NFL Media Policy,” the NFL said in a statement. “In addition, the league will collect the $50,000 fine that was imposed following violations of the media policy during the 2013 season, but held in abeyance in anticipation of future cooperation. The NFL Media Policy mandates that players must be available to the media during the practice week at the team facility and in the locker room following all games.”

Lynch did speak with NFL Network on the telephone after the game Sunday, but didn't talk to reporters after the game.
