“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,” Brady said in a statement hours before the team’s visit.

“Thank you to the President for hosting this honorary celebration and for supporting our team for as long as I can remember,” he added. “In light of some recent developments, I am unable to attend today’s ceremony, as I am attending to some personal family matters.”

Although the Patriots star quarterback expressed his disappointment with not being able to attend, he made it clear that he plans to make it there sometime soon.

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