“Me personally, I wouldn’t go,” Ellerbe says … noting, “I’ve already been before.”

Although Ellerbe, who is now a free agent, was a member of the 2017 Super Bowl championship team, he was also lucky enough to celebrate the Baltimore Raven’s Super Bowl Championship at Barack Obama’s White House in 2012.

Now though, he has decided to pass up on the opportunity. However, he isn’t the only player from his former team to decline the invitation. Torrey Smith, Chris Long and Malcolm Jenkins have also said they won’t be going. Not to mention, Eagles team owner, Jeffrey Lurie, himself finds Trump to be “disastrous.”

Regardless, the team and the White House are coordinating a trip whether some players show up or not.
