PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) - Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Chris Long will not be attending the White House should the Eagles win their Super Bowl LII matchup with his former team, the New England Patriots on Sunday, according to a recent interview.
Long appeared on the Pardon My Take Podcast, produced by Barstool Sports, on Monday morning when he was asked about a potential White House visit.
Long was a member of the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots just last year before becoming a member of the Eagles and was among a number of Patriots players to skip the White House visit with President Donald Trump.
Barstool Sports personality and 'Pardon My Take' host PFT Commenter asked, "If you guys win the Super Bowl, are you going to the White House?"
"No, I'm not going to the White House," Long responded, "Are you kidding me?"
Long made headlines this season when he announced he would be donating his regular season game checks for the entire season to charity in the wake of violent rallies in his hometown of Charlottesville, Virginia.
Eagles running back LeGarrette Blount was also a member of last year's New England Patriots, and also skipped the White House visit.
Last year President Trump withdrew the Golden State Warriors White House Visit invitation after several players made it clear they were not interested in visiting the White House.
