RENTON, Wash. -- Some Seahawks fans have started a fund to help running back Marshawn Lynch pay his $50,000 fine to the NFL for refusing to speak to the media during the regular season.

As of 2 p.m. PT on Monday, over $2,000 had been raised at a gofundme.com page, titled “12th Man for Marshawn Lynch.”

Seahawks fans have bombarded Twitter with angry comments directed toward the NFL for fining Lynch, who spoke to reporters last week for the first time this season after the fine was imposed.

It's a nice gesture, but seriously folks, Lynch doesn't need the help. He is earning $7.5 million this season, the second year of a four-year, $30 million contract.

And if Lynch doesn’t continue to speak during the playoffs, the fine likely will go up substantially each week.
