PHOENIX (AP) - The NFL won’t decide on any discipline for Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch until after the Super Bowl, commissioner Roger Goodell said at his Super Bowl news conference Friday.

Lynch has kept all his media appearances this week to five minutes or less and hasn’t said much. He has also donned hats with logos of his own apparel line, which are not sponsored by the NFL.

While Goodell did not comment about what the possible penalty might be, he made clear that Lynch had an obligation to do the interviews.

“It’s part of your job,” Goodell said. “There are things in your job that you might not necessarily want to do. I think Marshawn understands the importance of the Super Bowl and the importance of his appearance in the Super Bowl.”
