Pats celebrate Super Bowl win at White House

A total of 34 Patriots players attended the White House ceremony, the team told NFL Network's Kimberly Jones.

The quarterback said he hoped the team could win another championship and visit the White House again soon, and wished his teammates well.

Hernandez was serving a life sentence for murder but was recently acquitted on separate double murder charges.

"Here's what gripes me ― the scrutiny with which the visit to the White House has been handled by the press", James said.

Kraft said he was delighted to be honored by Trump for a remarkable comeback victory that he said echoed the president's own longshot campaign "against 16 career politicians facing odds nearly as long as we faced in the fourth quarter". Hernandez was found by guards in his cell at a MA correctional facility. He and Patriots owner Robert Kraft met with Trump in the Oval Office before the ceremony.

Alan Branch initially told reporters he would be staying to spend time with his family, but revealed to the Boston Globehe chose to stay because of sexist remarks made in the past by the president. "But thank you", Spicer responded.

Players have turned down White House invites ever since such events began to take off under President Ronald Reagan.

Gronkowski asked Spicer if he needed help handling the press.

Brady's mother, Galynn, who attended just one game last season (Super Bowl LI in February) as she battled cancer, was visiting Boston on Wednesday.

"It's a distinct honor for us to celebrate what was unequivocally our sweetest championship with a very good friend and somebody whose mental toughness and strength are greatly admired", Kraft said.

Sources revealed that although the National Football League quarterback has spoken positively of Trump in the past, in prior months, he has been relatively silent on the new President. "I'm very against it and I'd hate for my son, you know, to see me go to the White House and act like it's okay to do whatever you want if you're a celebrity", he said.

Defensive end Chris Long, defensive tackle Alan Branch and linebacker Dont'a Hightower said they would not make the trip, though not necessarily for political reasons. "With the president having so many strong opinions and prejudices, I believe certain people might feel accepted there while others won't", he said.
