NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Seattle Seahawks star Marshawn Lynch has made an early exit at Super Bowl media day.

The running back abruptly left the session Tuesday, walking out after 6½ minutes. He will be subject to a fine from the NFL.

Earlier this month, Lynch was fined $50,000 for not cooperating with the Seattle media. The NFL put the fine on hold, saying it would be rescinded if his behavior improved.

At this required Super Bowl gathering, Lynch was standing on the floor of the Prudential Center among a cluster of about 100 reporters. Other Seattle stars were at podiums, separated from the throng.

Lynch answered a half-dozen questions before walking away. He spoke to someone for a moment, then left the arena.

The Seattle and Denver players were expected to speak to media members during the 45-minute session that lead up to Sunday's game.
