Marshawn Lynch has returned to his old form of getting fined by the NFL.
The Raiders running back was fined $ 12,000 by the NFL Thursday for raising both middle fingers during the team’s Week 1 matchup against the Titans, according to ESPN. Lynch’s hand gesture was captured on CBS’ broadcast in the fourth quarter.
Marshawn Lynch flipped off the Titans during last Sunday’s opening game and was fined $ 12,000 by the league.
Sunday’s Raiders game was Lynch’s first NFL regular season game since 2015. He sat out the 2016 season after retiring, but he chose to return to football this past offseason and the Seahawks traded him to Oakland.
Lynch rushed for 76 yards on 18 carries in the Raiders 26-16 win against the Titans.
Quarterback Derek Carr told ESPN he thought the running back looked like his old self in the team’s first game.
“He’s running through people, and he’s going to make it a pain on them to tackle him. You’ve got to earn it if you’re going to tackle him.”

The 31-year-old is no stranger to making headlines when he comes to him dealing with the NFL. When he was on the Seahawks in 2014, he went viral for not answering questions at press conferences during Super Bowl week.
Lynch would later start answering “I’m just here so I won’t get fined” to every question.
The Raiders and Lynch will be back in action this Sunday again the Jets. He’ll look to find the endzone in the regular season for the first time since 2015.
