A total of 68 players from the active roster, practice squad, and injured reserve list were invited, and only 34 showed up. Among those who were absent was QB Tom Brady, who had to cancel at the last minute.
Two years ago, 50 players showed up for the White House visit following the team’s victory in Super Bowl XLIX. Have a look:
