The Denver Broncos Will Visit The White House Monday

By virtue of their victory in Super Bowl 50, the Denver Broncos will meet with the President of the United States at the White House Monday.

For the third time in franchise history, the Denver Broncos will visit the White House as Super Bowl Champions. The team is making the trip Monday, and will meet with President Barack Obama. 

Among the notable players who'll attend are David Bruton—a long-time team captain now in Washington—and Super Bowl MVP, Von Miller.

Miller has skipped out on the Broncos OTAs thus far, in an effort to negotiate a long-term contract. The Broncos applied the exclusive rights franchise tag to him earlier this year, but Miller wants a long-term deal.

Peyton Manning will also be in attendance. The five-time NFL MVP announced his retirement in early March but won't miss out on the opportunity to celebrate his second Super Bowl win with his old teammates. 

Conspicuously absent is Brock Osweiler, who announced last week that he plans to skip the White House trip with his old team, so that he can continue to work with his new team, learning the playbook.

Several players in attendance at the White House are no longer with the Broncos and now play for another team—calling into question Osweiler's excuse. There's little doubting the $72 million man is still chewing sour grapes, after Gary Kubiak benched him for Manning in Week 17 vs. San Diego

In fairness, guard Evan Mathis elected to skip the White House trip, as his new team, the Arizona Cardinals, are holding a mandatory mini-camp. The schedules conflict. 

Unfortunately, Aqib Talib will have to skip the White House as he recovers from a bullet wound suffered at a Dallas night club over the weekend. He is expected to make a full recovery and will be released from the hospital today, however.
