WMUR reports that Tom Brady did not travel to the White House today with his team.

The Patriots were invited to the White House following their Superbowl win. However, TB 12 stated he had family schedule conflicts that kept him from attending.

Brady released the following statement to ESPN......

 

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. In light of some recent developments, I am unable to attend today’s ceremony, as I am attending to some personal family matters. 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!
