Philadelphia Eagles invited to visit White House June 5

"We have been in contact with White House representatives and are now discussing the logistics of an upcoming visit to Washington", the Eagles told ESPN last month.

The Super Bowl LII champion Philadelphia Eagles have been invited to the White House for a visit on June 5, per WPVI Action News.

Major sports league champions have routinely visited presidents since the 1980s, but several Eagles players have voiced opposition to President Donald Trump and said they would not attend a ceremony at the White House. "Me personally, because it's not a meeting or a sit-down or anything like that, I'm just not interested in the photo op".

Playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore against SunRisers Hyderabad , De Villiers was fielding on the rope at deep mid-wicket. Put into bat RCB posted a commanding total of 218/6 in 20 overs and from thereon SRH were always second favourites.

Philadelphia's ABC affiliate quoted Long as saying: "At end of the day I do not want to sit, take a picture with somebody I don't care for". Over the last two years I have been meeting with legislators, both republican and democrat. "I don't want him to say, 'Hey Dad, why'd you go [to the White House] when you knew the right thing was to not go?'" "I'm about creating positive change in the communities that I come from", Jenkins told ABC in February. "But I know for a fact that there are other guys who have dreamt of the opportunity to go to the White House and I think they should have that opportunity".

Jenkins has been an outspoken advocate for social reform and one of the team's captains this past season, along with his role as co-founder of The Player's Coalition. The team now has OTAs scheduled on June 5, which is the day the White House wants the visit to happen.

While that may be the case, head coach Doug Pederson canceled one of their OTAs last spring so the team could take part in a team-building paintball excursion.
