Eagles Receive White House Invitation for Super Bowl LII Win vs. Patriots

Eagles Receive White House Invitation for Super Bowl LII Win vs. Patriots

While the team has not made an announcement about whether it will attend, several players have already said they do not intend to take part in the ceremony because of who is in office.

President Trump drew the ire of many NFL officials and players when he criticized the league for not punishing the players who chose to sit or kneel during the playing of the national anthem.

Shortly before the Super Bowl LII, defensive end Chris Long told Barstool Sports he did not plan on attending the White House visit if the Eagles were to win.

"Many of us have no interest in supporting President Trump", Lurie said. There are some players who do, too.

WHITE HOUSE: Who is (and isn't) going? "But this is not where you brandish a group of people because they own assets in a sport we love, supporting what many of us perceive as, you know, one [expletive] disastrous presidency".

Last year, the Patriots visited the White House on April 19, 2017, so this trip will come considerably later. Over the last two years I have been meeting with legislators, both republican and democrat.

"At this point in time, there's so much that's been kind of swirling around that administration, I don't see it as beneficial at this moment in time to visiting in a celebratory fashion", Jenkins said. Don't matter - if you wanna meet to talk about advancing our communities, changing our countries, I am all for that.

Jenkins, one of the team captains, will be joining his teammates in Washington, but will opt out of the White House visit, as he stated. He's going to say, "That guy that disrespects our flag, he's fired". A couple Eagles declined to officially comment whether they'd be at the June meeting - we'll just have to stay tuned.

"I don't want to take away from anybody's experience or make it a big distraction", Jenkins said in February after the Super Bowl.
