Only 34 members of the Super Bowl champion Patriots attended the White House celebration in 2017. It has become increasingly common for individual players to skip the event.
NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo offered more information on how the Eagles planned on having a smaller group of players and team officials travel to Washington, D.C.:
The Eagles held meetings with their players in recent weeks and, according to sources, Jeff Lurie didn’t want to put the players in a tough spot so he decided to send a smaller contingent. Other players were going to have an optional day at the facility. Now, no trip to D.C.
Garafolo also reported the Eagles had decided on a group of fewer than 10 representatives to attend the White House ceremony. Former Eagle Torrey Smith, who was a part of the Super Bowl-winning team, responded to Trump’s decision:
This would’ve been the second year the Super Bowl champions sent a smaller delegation to the White House.
