Seahawks’ RB Marshawn Lynch fined for cleats

NFL

Seattle Seahawks’ running back Marshawn Lynch was fined by the NFL for wearing Skittles-inspired cleats, according to the Seattle Times. He was reportedly fined $10,000.

The shoes, the Nike Vapor Talon Elite, were given to Lynch. He has shown an affinity to Skittles since high school, when his mother would give him the candy on the sidelines, according to the newspaper.

This was Lynch’s second violation of the league’s uniform policy. He was fined $5,000 earlier in the season for wearing green socks.
