"We have been in contact with White House representatives and are now discussing the logistics of an upcoming visit to Washington", a spokesman for the Eagles said at the time.
"We are in the process of working through the logistics of a trip to Washington D.C., including a visit to the White House, on June 5th", a team spokeman said in a statement to NBC Sports Philadelphia.
Despite the invitation, there are a few who won't be taking their talents to the White House and Eagles safety Malcolm Butler was the first to be asked about it.
The NBA champion Golden State Warriors did not go to the White House previous year after Trump rescinded the offer when star guard Steph Curry expressed hesitation over the trip.
"I don't want to take away from anybody's experience or make it a big distraction".
HBO Docuseries 'The Case Against Adnan Syed' to Center on 'Serial' Subject
Syed was jailed in 1999 for the murder of ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee and has been serving a life sentence ever since. Sky said the series will present new discoveries and "ground-breaking revelations that challenge the state's case".
"At this point, I'm not interested in any discussions on anything right now just with the climate that's been going on in The White House", Jenkins said. Don't matter - if you wanna meet to talk about advancing our communities, changing our countries, I am all for that. "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".
Players cited various reasons for their refusal - in particular, President Trump's controversial race relations and his recommendation to the NFL to fire players who took a knee during the national anthem. Jenkins, the co-founder of the Players Coalition, has been active on the social reform front. "'He's fired. He's fired'".
The New York Times, citing recordings of a meeting of owners and players in response to Trump's rhetoric about the demonstrations, quoted Lurie describing Trump's presidency as "disastrous".
The team was officially approached in April to set a date.
Immediately after the Eagles' win over the Patriots in February, a number of players declared they wouldn't be making the visit. The NBA's Golden State Warriors had their invite rescinded by President Donald Trump after several players announced their intentions not to attend the visit.
