Marshawn Lynch, Media Day

It's confirmed: Marshawn Lynch is only at the Super Bowl so he won't get fined.

After being fined $50,000 by the NFL for refusing to talk to press throughout the 2013 football season, the 28-year-old Seattle Seahawks player hilariously answered every single media question at today's Super Bowl press day with the same exact answer.

"Ask me all the questions y'all want to, I'm going to answer with the same answers," Lynch said at the beginning of his press conference. "Y'all can shoot if y'all please. I'm just here so I won't get fined."

Lynch stuck to his word and answered every single question with "I'm just here so I won't get fined." LOL!

As reporters continued to try and get a different answer out of him, Lynch teased, "You better make more with your time, you only got like three more minutes."

By the end of the counter-productive press conference, Lynch said the same answer over 25 times. After leaving the stage, one astute SportsCenter host said, "He's clearly here so he won't get fined," before adding that lynch was "refreshingly honest."

There's no question Lynch's press conference was pretty amazing, but he gave an equally epic interview a few months ago by answering almost every question with a simple "Yeah."
