, what is not news to anyone in Philadelphia. (Chris Long has already to school equity organizations. Malcolm Jenkins , and Torrey Smith .)

Several Philadelphia Eagles players will skip out on any White House celebration this year following their first-ever Super Bowl win Sunday.

Wide receiver Torrey Smith, defensive end Chris Long and safety Malcolm Jenkins have all said they will not attend if the traditional presidential invitation is extended.

"I permanently do not anticipate attending that," Jenkins told CNN on Monday. He said he didn't have any message for the president.

[...] "We read the news just like everyone else. You see Donald Trump tweet something," Smith said in January. "We have those conversations in the locker room, just like everyone else does in the workplace. We're very informed about what goes on, and we're trying to continue to educate ourselves."

Eagles DE Chris Long was asked if he'd visit the White House if the Birds win the Super Bowl.

"Are you kidding me?," he said.

“Guy that didn’t go to White House last year answers direct question as to whether or not he’d hypothetically go this year” what a shocker!!
thank you to the hack jobs for making it sound like I held a press conference. Also credit

Also: the team that was as concerned about social activism as anyone in the league (), most notably through Malcolm Jenkins and Chris Long, just won the Super Bowl. Let’s stop pretending that’s a distraction from here on out.

Non-football fans needing a reason to care today should read about Chris Long (). He’s donated full year’s salary to educ equality, spoken out bluntly on poverty & privilege, first white player to demonstrate in solidarity - & a Cville native!
