Super Bowl Champion Eagles 'Discussing' Visit To White House

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- The Super Bowl champion Eagles could soon be headed to the White House.

The team released this statement Monday saying, "We have been in contact with White House representatives and are currently discussing the logistics of an upcoming visit to Washington. 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."

But at least one prominent member of the team is already saying he's not going. Defensive end Brandon Graham tells SportsRadio 94WIP, he's more focused on the Eagles ring ceremony.

He did not provide any further explanation.

Two Eagles players did not meet President Trump when they won the Super Bowl as Patriots in 2017, Chris Long and LeGarrette Blount.

No details on a possible date for the visit have been released.
