Report: Eagles accept White House invitation
| 5 days ago

The Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles have accepted an invitation to the White House, according to a published report on Thursday.

Per 6ABC (WPVI-TV in Philadelphia), the Eagles will celebrate their Super Bowl LII victory over the New England Patriots by visiting 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. on June 5.

The Eagles released a statement last month that the team was in the early stages of planning a visit.

"We are honored to receive this invitation and view this not only as an opportunity to be recognized for our on-field accomplishments, but also as an opportunity to engage in productive dialogue with the leaders of our country," the statement read, via NJ Advance Media.

White House invitations haven't always been accepted since President Donald Trump has taken office. The NBA's Golden State Warriors were "uninvited" by the President in response to comments made by guard Stephen Curry, but the Houston Astros accepted an invitation to celebrate their World Series championship.

As for the Eagles, there could be some absences during the team's trip to Washington.

Safety Malcolm Jenkins told CNN following the Super Bowl that he plans to skip the visit while defensive lineman Chris Long said on the "Pardon My Take" podcast, "No, I'm not going to the White House. Are you kidding me?"
