Well, Seahawks evidently don't have a problem with Lynch's media day revolt.

The Seattle Seahawks not only want Marshawn Lynch around next year, but they've made a significant commitment to keep him on their team, possibly, for the rest of his career.

On the heels of another dominant season for the running back nicknamed "Beast Mode," multiple sources tell me Seattle has made Lynch an offer on a huge contract extension that would keep him in a Seahawks uniform for years to come.

The deal is believed to include more than $10 million for Lynch in the 2015 season alone. Lynch currently is slated to make $5 million in 2015, the final year of what originally was a four-year, $31 million deal.

The Seahawks believe that Lynch, who has rushed for at least 1,200 yards in each of the past four seasons, has outplayed his contract, sources say. They want to reward him for his work.

I bet the team insisted upon a pretty severe "Not being nice to the Media" penalty clause this time considering how so very important it is that Lynch reveals what motivates him and who hits the hardest of the players he plays against...not

The way I see there are plenty of players who like to run their mouths to force others to do so media can ask stupid questions to earn their living. They are making much of nothing in the end. NFL has a lot more problems player wise than Lynch not liking interviews for whatever reason.

I'd bet the old time football players watching the circus they call the pre SB media day are laughing their rear ends off, on how absurd it has all gotten.

If someone wants to avoid the slimy media, and just perform their job on game day, good for them.
I am 100% with this. I am also sick and tired of the newscasts being cluttered with all this stuff. Talk don't talk, I don't care. There are many of us who don't. This isn't news it's silly.

I didn't know who he was and didn't care who he was and never will. His story might be of special interest in a sports segment but that's about it. Enough already, let's get on to real news and let the guy play football the way he wants to.

It does at times, seem like they opened up a prison of liars, dead beat dads, wife beaters, and cheats and formed a league.
