NAPA, Calif. (AP) Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch spoke to reporters Thursday for the first time in training camp and avoided questions regarding his decision to sit during the national anthem before last week’s preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Not long after the Raiders broke camp following their final practice, Lynch spoke briefly about his charity work in Oakland including an upcoming backpack giveaway for needy children, a business forum for youths he recently held and his thoughts on playing in the Coliseum this week.

When the topic turned to the choice he made to sit during the national anthem, something Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett also did before a preseason game in Los Angeles, Lynch responded with cryptic answers.
