The organization took its time weighing the political consequences the visit would effectuate, and until now is still undecided.
It's been three months since the Philadelphia Eagles won their first ever Super Bowl in franchise history, and even then, many players had stated they had no plans to go to the White House because of who was in office.

As for the Eagles, there could be some absences during the team's trip to Washington.
The topic of which members of the team would go to the White House started the second the Eagles defeated the New England Patriots.
The Eagles released a statement last month that said: "We have been in contact with White House representatives and are now discussing the logistics of an upcoming visit to Washington". "We are honored to receive this invitation and view this not only as an opportunity to be recognized for our on-field accomplishments, but also as an opportunity to engage in productive dialogue with the leaders of our country". The team would likely have to shorten the session if they wanted to make the trip to DC, which is almost two hours away by train.
