Marshawn mum again as Seahawks meet media

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch abruptly ended his media availability - again - walking away from a throng of reporters after about 7 uncomfortable minutes in which he answered just a few questions.

Lynch, who created a stir at media day Tuesday by talking for only 6½ minutes, writhed in his seat and leaned his head back at times as a few dozen reporters tried to ask him questions during the players' 45-minute availability at the team hotel.

Lynch says he showed up just so he wouldn't get fined, and fullback Michael Robinson began answering questions for Lynch - using the running back's "boss" figure of speech to end each sentence.

At one point, Lynch looked up at a team staffer and asked, "What about that time?" A few moments later, as a reporter tried to ask a question, shouting, "Hey, Marshawn!" Lynch got up, climbed over a few chairs and made his way through the crowd of reporters and disappeared through an area restricted to team personnel.
