BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — On April 19, 2017, President Donald Trump welcomed the Patriots after their 25-point comeback to beat the Falcons in Super Bowl 51.

Now, the Pats are champs again, which means another visit to DC is on the horizon—but, again, Devin McCourty and Duron Harmon aren't going. Neither is Jason McCourty. 

Only 34 players attended the last gathering.

The Red Sox also have a trip to the White House coming to celebrate their World Series championship. That's May 9, but Jackie Bradley Jr. is the latest to take a pass on the event.

He told the Boston Globe he's not interested . Mookie Betts and Rafael Devers also won't attend. Manager Alex Cora may not either.

If you're wondering, Bradley did visit the White House twice with his University of South Carolina teammates after winning the College World Series in 2010 and 2011, then with the Sox in 2013, all with Barack Obama in office.
