Today the tradition of the Super Bowl winning team visiting the White House will continue with the Patriots for their win against Atlanta, taking the Super Bowl LI victory. However they may be missing a few participants.
Earlier this week, former Patriots lineman Chris Long and cornerback Devin McCourty declined the invite joining others like LeGarrette Blount, Martellus Bennett and Dont'a Hightower. They have all opted out of the visit because their lack of desire to meet President Trump.
Tom Brady has just announced that his face will not be seen at the White House today, only he is chopping it up to a "persoanl family matter."
