This may be seem like it’s related to Aaron Hernandez killing himself in prison today, but it isn’t.

The New England Patriots were scheduled to visit current president Donald Trump at the White House on Wednesday, but QB Tom Brady had to bail at the last minute.

“Tom Brady says he will NOT join his New England Patriots teammates at the White House on Wednesday … citing “personal family matters.”

Brady just issued a statement, saying, “In light of some recent developments, I am unable to attend today’s ceremony, as I am attending to some personal family matters.”

He explained, “I am so happy and excited that our team is being honored at the White House today. Our team has accomplished something very special that we are all proud of and will be for years to come. Thank you to the president for hosting this honorary celebration and for supporting our team for as long as I can remember.”

“Hopefully, if we accomplish the goal of winning a championship in the future years, we will back on the South Lawn again soon. Have a great day!”

Brady and Trump are very good friends, so I’m sure they’ll hang out at some point.
