Defensive end ChrisLong, linebacker DontaHightower, running back LeGarretteBlount and defensive tackle AlanBranch have also opted out of the trip to D.C. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Chris Long, who was one of the few white NFL players to publicly come out and support ColinKaepernick during his National Anthem protests, said he hadn’t been asked to boycott Trump, he had already planned on it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ LeGarrette Blount told the NFL Network, “I will not be going to the WhiteHouse. It’s just some of the things that — I just don’t feel welcome in that house, I’m going to just leave it at that.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On the flip side, Alan Branch and Dont’a Hightower declined the White House invitation for non presidential reasons. “I’m going to hang with family and continue to celebrate until next season starts,” Branch told Sirus XM radio, while Hightower essentially has ‘been-there-done-that’ three times in his football career — twice as a member of Alabama’s BCS title-winning teams and once when the Patriots won the Super Bowl in 2015. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We already know why Martellus Bennett and Devin McCourty won’t be in attendance. I’m sure Trump will understand. He’s only BFF’s with Tom Brady anyway. patriots

Bill Belichick, George W.

President Obama has hosted everyone from the Cubs to the Miami Heat. With Donald Trump being good friends with TomBrady, Robert Kraft and Bill Belichick, it’s no question that the SuperBowl51 champs will be heading to the White House soon. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One player in particular will not be attending. Following Sunday’s Super Bowl win over the Atlanta Falcons, Patriots MartellusBennett says that he will be skipping out on meeting the president at the White House. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I’m not going to go,” the tight end said in a postgame interview. When asked why, Bennett responded, “It is what it is. People know how I feel about it. Just follow me on Twitter.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Bennett has been very vocal on Twitter about his thoughts on Trump’s policies. On Monday, during Super Bowl media day, Bennett told reporters that if the Pats won he wouldn’t be meeting Trump, “because I don’t support the guy in the house.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Bennett wouldn’t be the first athlete to skip out on a visit to the White House. In 2015, TomBrady did not meet with PresidentObama, nor did Tim Thomas after the Bruins won the Stanley Cup in 2011. Steelers’ JamesHarrison declined to attend in 2006 and 2009, citing that it wasn’t that big of a deal. After the Red Sox won the World Series, MannyRamirez decided not to meet George W Bush. Let’s not forget MichaelJordan choosing to celebrate with his family over George H. W. Bush in 1991.
