At least three Philadelphia Eagles have already gone on record saying that they will not attend the White House if President Donald Trump extended an invitation to the Super Bowl 52 champions.
Chris Long and Torrey Smith made it clear their intentions to not attend even before the Eagles 41-33 win over the New England Patriots.

“Guy that didn’t go to White House last year answers direct question as to whether or not he’d hypothetically go this year” what a shocker!!
