Early reports said that the Eagles planned to send ten players to meet with President Trump at the White House on Tuesday. However, according to a new report, the true number of planned attendees is closer to what you would have if you dropped the zero from that number, Breitbart reports.
According to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, the Super Bowl champs had planned to send MVP quarterback Nick Foles to the ceremony, and that’s it:

No information about who the second player would have been, in the end it truly does not matter because President Trump canceled the event. Then the President turned the event into HONORING our Soldiers and LEO.
President Donald Trump presided over a brief White House south lawn ceremony honoring the United States and military men and women on Tuesday in lieu of a previously planned event with the NFL Philadelphia Eagles. RWT Report
We stand to honor our military, and to honor our country and to remember the fallen heroes who never made it back home. We stand to show our love for our fellow citizens and our magnificent Constitution. We stand to pay tribute to the incredible Americans who came before us and the heroic sacrifices they made.
America’s a great nation, a community, a family. And America is our home and we love our home.
The situation with the NFL and their policies about their spoiled brats throwing temper tantrum protests during the national anthem, is a powder keg that appears has only 1 outcome.
Unfortunately, the Eagles offered to send only a tiny handful of representatives, while making clear that the great majority of players would not attend the event, despite planning to be in D.C. today. In other words, the vast majority of the Eagles team decided to abandon their fans. ~ White House Press Release
