Marshawn Lynch continued his attempts to avoid the press by making the briefest of appearances at Super Bowl media day.

The Seattle Seahawks running back, wearing a hood and sunglasses, spoke to the assembled throng of media for a little over six minutes at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

Lynch has maintained a wall of silence throughout the season and was fined $50,000 by the NFL for failing to fulfil his media commitments.

He subsequently had that put on hold after he promised to talk to the media in future, which he did before both of Seattle's play-off victories.

But it is clear he wants to keep any media appearances to an absolute minimum and on Tuesday gave only a short interview to the NFL Network.

"No need to talk about it. (I) was raised like that. Game time, though, I'll be there," he said.

Players are required to attend media day but there are no obligations as far as the exact extent of their co-operation is concerned.
