Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch held what amounted to a very short news conference on Wednesday — it lasted 9 minutes in duration — in which he said he is expecting a suspension on the heels of his meeting with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Tuesday.
“For me I honestly see a suspension coming,” Lynch said. “But that comes with the consequences.”
We’ve got a two-minute video for you of the best portions of the news conference. You’ll notice Lynch is sans the gold grill he usually wears across his teeth.
Lynch said he believes he’ll be hearing from the league in about 10 days. The consequences are a result of his recent guilty plea to a misdemeanor gun possession charge, which resulted in Lynch being sentenced to community service and probation.
The Bills’ official site has a more extensive story on the repentant Lynch, while The AP gets into some of details behind the Feb. 11 arrest. And, for those of you with fantasy football implications on your mind in March, Michael Fabiano has already chimed in with his spin in the fantasy blog.
