Malcolm Jenkins speaks on Eagles possible White House visit

Malcolm Jenkins speaks on Eagles possible White House visit

Chris Long, Torrey Smith, and Brandon Graham have also said they won't attend, NJ Advance Media reported.

"Going to the White House should be seen as an honor, and I believe it is an honor, but to me it has to be an honor with the right type of respect in office".

The set date comes about a month after the White House confirmed it was planning a visit.

While the team has still reportedly worked with the White House to arrange a visit, owner Jeffrey Lurie is among the league's more liberal owners and his thoughts on the president are well known - he called Trump's presidency "disastrous" in a New York Times report published right around the same time it was announced the Eagles were arranging a visit.

The original invitation was offered back in April to the Eagles, but they stated that they were figuring out the logistics of the event and viewed it as an opportunity not only to be recognized for their on-field accomplishments, but also as a chance "to engage in productive dialogue with the leaders of our country".

Such visits have grabbed headlines in past years, with members of the New England Patriots boycotting the visit last year.

Graham, one of the heroes of Super Bowl LII, had the procedure May 1 and is now in a protective boot. Don't matter - if you wanna meet to talk about advancing our communities, changing our countries, I am all for that.

The Houston Astros, the 2017 World Series champions, took their trip to the White House last March, but Carlos Correa and Carlos Beltran, both natives of Puerto Rico, did not attend. "But visiting the White House is not something that I'm interested in doing at this time". "I'll leave that up to other people that want to make those decisions". "But this isn't one of those meetings, so I'll opt out of the photo opportunity". I want the guys who chose to go to enjoy that.
