ABILENE, TX - Since the Eagles won the super Bowl they will partake in the traditional White House visit, however, some players do not want to attend.  Chris Long, Malcolm Jenkins and Torrey Smith have all stated they will not go to the White House due to their political stances. Jenkins told CNN in an interview that he does not have a message for the President. He has been clear on his stance and he wants to create positive change wherever he is.

This is not the first time professional athletes have boycotted the White House. LeGarrette Blount did not attend last year with the Patriots.
