(Seattle, WA) -- Marshawn Lynch's mother says the Seattle Seahawks star running back simply "didn't want to go" to the White House. The Super Bowl champion Seahawks visited the White House earlier this week to get a tour and to be honored by President Obama, who noted Lynch's absence in his remarks during the event. Lynch's mother, Delia, told "The Seattle Times" that her son didn't give her a particular reason he wasn't there with his teammates except that he "didn't want to go." Lynch was fined 50-thousand dollars by the NFL last season for violating league policy by refusing to meet with reporters.
