Brady cited a family issue for not attending. He also had skipped his team’s visit with former President Barack Obama at the White House, in 2015, citing family issues.

Others cited political reasons.  LeGarrette Blount told a radio host that he didn't feel welcome in the White House. Others echoed this sentiment.

The visit also follows the death of former teammate Aaron Hernandez in prison.
