Safety Duron Harmon told TMZ Sports that he was opting out.

It is somewhat of a tradition in America that teams who win major sporting competitions would soon after visit the President in the White House, to celebrate the achievement.

Harmon followed that up by saying it "would be dope" to shun Trump and meet former President Barack Obama instead, like the Golden State Warriors did earlier this year. Hey, Obama, man, come holler at me. "We love you over here".

And while the Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and league MVP Julian Edelman have already recorded a "I'm Going to Disney World" commercial that's on heavy rotation after their Super Bowl 53 win on Sunday, some of their teammates plan to nix the the next stop: The White House trip, The NY Daily News reports.

Of course, all award shows, from the Golden Globes and the Grammys to the prestigious Academy Awards , are losing viewers. She added that speculation over the shape of the ceremony was an encouraging sign that the Oscars were still relevant.

He was also golfing partners with Brady prior to becoming president.

Harmon made his comments to a TMZ Sports interviewer while leaving Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium shortly after helping New England's defence lead the way in the low-scoring contest.

Devin flat-out said he is not going to go.

So far, at least three members of the winning team will not be making the trip.

There's no doubt that the Patriots will send a contingent of some sort to the White House later this year, unlike the Eagles, who defeated New England in the 2018 Super Bowl. The president referred to the offerings as "Great American Food" and he said he paid for the "Hamberders" himself.
