Not everyone thinks Tom Brady is the greatest to ever play the game of football.
While Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall can admit the Patriots veteran is a phenomenal quarterback, he can’t acknowledge the five-time Super Bowl champion is the best player.
“I’ve got four kids at home so I’m just going to hang out with the family and continue celebrating until the next season starts,” Branch said.
Branch attended the White House celebration for the 2014 Patriots, when former President Barack Obama was in office, after New England defeated Seattle in Super Bowl 49.
Fellow defensive lineman Chris Long and linebacker Dont’a Hightower also announced plans to skip a White House trip. Long wrote on Twitter that not attending the ceremony was “my call.” Although he didn’t elaborate further, it’s believed Long’s stance is political in nature, based upon previous public comments he has made.
Hightower’s choice stems from the fact he already had visited the White House as part of a post-championship visit with the Alabama Crimson Tide. He also skipped New England’s White House trip two years ago.
More Patriots players may be following suit, despite the fact team owner Robert Kraft, quarterback Tom Brady and coach Bill Belichick are friends with Trump. Running back James White, on Tuesday Cheap Jerseys America night with SiriusXM NFL Radio, said he was undecided.
