Marshawn Lynch is usually “just here so he won’t get fined,” but his antics during Thursday Night Football were an exception to his motto.
A bunch of Raiders players went after Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters after Peters drilled David Carr with a late hit. Lynch, who wasn’t even on the field for the play, dumbly decided to get in on the action as well.
Not only did he come off the bench to join a fight, which is stupid in itself, he also shoved an official…

That will get you fined 10 times out of 10.
According to ESPN’s Kevin Seifert, Lynch’s actions are going to cost him a pretty penny.
Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch could be looking at a loss of more than $100,000 for that ridiculous display. First, Lynch is subject to a minimum fine of $30,387 for making contact with an official during that melee. That he came off the bench to join the fight makes him a candidate to be suspended, as well. That would cost him a game check of $79,411.
Lynch’s run from the bench to the fight was reportedly his longest run of the 2017 season.
