After fining Lynch twice for grabbing his crotch to celebrate touchdowns in recent games, the NFL will reportedly penalize the Seahawks 15 yards if he does it during Sunday's Super Bowl against the New England Patriots. He was fined $20,000 after making the gesture in the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers.
"I haven't talked to him yet about the thing that came up with the league, but that will be addressed," Carroll said Sunday when the team arrived in Arizona. "I think he's going to have a great Super Bowl week and have a great time doing this and playing in this game."
Carroll said that Lynch should be understood as a private person.
"He's also a very private person, too. That's part of the media thing. He's not going to express a whole lot to you. I've said before that there's a great deal spoken in his silence as well."
Heading into Sunday's game, Lynch is required to speak to the media on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
The Seahawks play the Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX in Glendale, Ariz., on Sunday.
