  • Will the Eagles visit with President Donald Trump

When will the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles visit the White House? After their victory over the Patriots in February, some top players, including safety Malcolm Jenkins, defensive lineman Chris Long and wide receiver Torrey Smith, said they would not visit the White House if invited.

The revelation of Lurie's comments comes at an interesting time, since the Eagles are in fact planning a trip to the White House. President Trump had harsh words for National Football League players who protested and called them a few choice names.

How many more Eagles might decline the trip is an open question.

Owner Jeffrey Lurie, meanwhile, is not a fan of President Donald Trump.

In any case, BetDSI Sportsbook is offering odds on whether or not the Philadelphia Eagles will visit President Trump in accordance to Super Bowl champion tradition.

Trump has called for the league to change its rules to forbid players from kneeling in protest during "The Star-Spangled Banner". Who will they pick first?

The comment came at a meeting where numerous owners, players, and league executives were present to discuss the anthem kneeling and the president's comments about firing players.

Team owner Jeff Lurie was a Hillary Clinton donor and has criticized the president with his fellow NFL Owners.

With the 2018 NFL Draft nearly upon us, many fans are speculating about who the Eagles will take at 32, or if they will trade out of the pick, but the real drama in South Philly may come at the top of the draft as the quarterback arms race may lead to a big payday for Nick Foles. At one point, a player said that it was hard to trust the owners because they supported Mr. Trump.

'But this is not where you brandish a group of people because they own assets in a sport we love, supporting what many of us perceive as, you know, one disastrous presidency, ' he said, using a vulgarity to emphasize 'disastrous, ' then adding: 'Don't quote me'.

The Trump White House has been the source of tension with other sports teams.
