Carson Wentz among Eagles who plan to visit White House

For many high-profile athletes, a visit to the White House after a championship season is no longer just a prestigious photo op.

Not everyone will visit the White House, however. "I will be involved in going".

Wentz threw 33 touchdowns and just seven interceptions in 13 games a year ago, going 11-2 before giving way to Foles, who led the Eagles to the Super Bowl title.

Long, who donated his entire 2017 salary to charities linked to educational projects, also ruled out participating. During the press conference, Wentz was asked would he attend the visit.

♦ Coach Doug Pederson addressed the team's invitation to the White House, implying that the team had accepted while offering no hint of what the actual attendance may be.

Several of Wentz's Eagles teammates have said they wouldn't go to the White House because they disagree with President Donald Trump's policies and actions. "I don't personally view it - I know some people do and everyone has their opinion on it - but I don't view it as a political thing whatsoever".

"I'm just learning how to trust it, trust your knee, trust your movement, all of those things", he said. I don't view it as a political thing whatsoever.

"I don't really mess with politics very often", Wentz said.

Over 100 M&S stores to close
Since turnround specialist Archie Norman was named M&S chairman a year ago , however, the pace of restructuring has increased. M&S today named 14 stores earmarked for closure, with 21 already having shut and a further 65 are yet to be earmarked.

Trump has met with champions in various sports since taking office, though he withdrew an invitation to the National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors after they won the title last season.

None of the Eagles took that stance.

"I know for me, personally, if the team decides as a whole most guys want to go or be a part of it, I will be attending with them". It's a great honor.

"Many of us have no interest in supporting President Trump", Lurie said at the owners meeting in response to a player who was concerned that owners couldn't be trusted to be impartial about the protest because many of them were aligned with Trump.

Linebacker Paul Worrilow injured his knee during practice and had to be carted off the field. He dropped to the ground and Eagles athletic trainers placed his leg in an air cast. The voluntary workout portion of the offseason is officially underway.

"It's an individual basis", he said. Bennett's absence isn't related to the legal issue in Houston, one in which he allegedly shoved a handicapped volunteer acting as security at the Super Bowl LI.

Although Bennett is new to the team, having been acquired in a trade with Seattle, Pederson doesn't envision the defensive end having any trouble fitting in with the Eagles' defense.
