President Trump Invites Eagles To White House Team Coordinating Trip

Philadelphia Eagles Brandon Graham #55 in action against the New England Patriots at Super Bowl 52 on Sunday

A date has been set for the Eagles' invitation to the White House.

Running back LeGarrette Blount, now with the Detroit Lions, also did not visit following the Patriots' victory but has not announced his plans regarding the Eagles' visit.

Exact details have not been confirmed.

Despite that account, the entire team isn't necessarily excited about the official invite.

Four months after winning the Super Bowl, the Philadelphia Eagles might finally be heading to the White House. In fact, some have sworn they won't go.

Trump has faced substantial opposition from various NFL players because of his comments calling for the firing of any player that takes part in a protest during the National Anthem.

The New York Times, citing recordings of a meeting of owners and players in response to Trump's rhetoric about the demonstrations, quoted Lurie describing Trump's presidency as "disastrous".

"Many of us have no interest in supporting President Trump", Lurie said. "Yes, there are some". There are some players who do, too. "You know, some owner is going to do that". Here's a rundown of the players you won't see in the Oval Office in June (and the ones who aren't so sure).

"No, I'm not going to the White House". He issued a statement on the visit after the team won Super Bowl LII.

"It's not about politics; I just don't think the president is a good person". Over the last two years I have been meeting with legislators, both republican and democrat.

The NBA champion Golden State Warriors did not go to the White House past year after Trump rescinded the offer when star guard Steph Curry expressed hesitation over the trip.

Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham is recovering from right ankle surgery and could miss the team's spring workouts.

"I don't have a message for the president". The team now has OTAs scheduled on June 5, which is the day the White House wants the visit to happen. I just don't see it. "But visiting the White House is not something that I'm interested in doing at this time". "We hope to have something finalized in the next couple of weeks".

"I don't know that I want to discuss politics or anything like that", Kelce told reporters from NJ.com in April.
