Marshawn Lynch didn't want to meet the President at Seahawks ceremony

Seattle Seahawks players were present at the White House on Wednesday as they celebrated their Super Bowl XLVIII win with Barack Obama.

The President of the United States formally honored the Seahawks for their 43-8 destruction of the Denver Broncos in February.

But one member of the Seattle side was distinctly missing from the line-up of Seahawks players suited and booted for the occasion.

That man was of course Marshawn Lynch. The unassumingly shy character that only likes to do his talking on the field.

He once said to Deion Sanders during the Super Bowl Media Day that he was just "all about that action boss."

But today it was his mother's turn to do the talking for him as she told the NFL Network that he didn't want to meet the President on Wednesday.

Obama praised and joked about Lynch at the ceremony. "I am sorry that Marshawn's not here because I just want to say how much I admire his approach to the press," Obama joked. "I wanted to get some tips from him. It's about the action."

But Beast Mode's mom just said he "didn't want to go."

Each to their own, but watch the video above for the Seahawks that did turn up to get honored at the White House.
