Will Marshawn Lynch attend Media Day?

Players on both teams are required, at the risk of possible fines, to attend various media requirements during Super Bowl  week, most notably Tuesday’s media day.

NFL.com reports, however, that notoriously media-shy Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch may not attend.

As NFL.com notes, Lynch was not listed as one of 17 Seattle players assigned to a podium. Other other players, it says, will  be available in “designated Standing Interview sections.” It would be rare, though, for a player of Lynch’s stature to not be available on a podium, leading to speculation that he may not attend, and almost certainly at the risk of incurring a heavy fine.

Lynch was fined $50,000 earlier this year for not talking to the media, but appealed and the fine was then stayed as long as he agreed to talk to the media.

Lynch has since talked to the media at least once a week, though usually for only a couple of minutes and generally giving two or three word answers.

Lynch explained some of his reasoning in a lengthy NFL.com story written by Michael Silver, whose relationship with Lynch goes back to Lynch’s days at Cal, where Silver also attended.

Here are the 17 Seattle players who were assigned a podium for Tuesday’s Media Day:

1. Earl Thomas

2. Russell Wilson

3. Pete Carroll

4. Richard Sherman

5. Kam Chancellor

6. Max Unger

7. Michael Bennett

8. Cliff Avril

9. Red Bryant

10. Brandon Mebane

11. Bobby Wagner

12. Russell Okung

13. Zach Miller

14. Doug Baldwin

15. Golden Tate

16. Michael Robinson

17. Percy Harvin
