Marshawn Lynch will not be fined for the hat he wore at the Super Bowl, according to NFL spokesman Michael Signora.

The NFL also determined that Lynch complied with media obligations and is not subject to fines in that regard, either.

There had been speculation that Lynch could be subject to a fine for wearing a non-licensed hat during his Super Bowl media appearances.

But the NFL says the hat was made and given to him by an NFL licensee, New Era, and was in team colors (the hat is visible in the above photo).

The NFL ask detrained that Lynch “complied with his obligation to attend all required media sessions at the Super Bowl. Lynch stayed for five minutes at each of his three sessions. It has since been revealed that Lynch and the NFL agreed to that time as a minimum to avoid a fine during the hearings Lynch had with the league when he appealed a $100,000 fine earlier this season.
