Although the Eagles were supposed to attend a Super Bowl celebration at the White House, the trip was canceled when "the great majority of [Eagles] players" chose to skip the visit. An NFL source said none of the players on the Eagles team that won the Super Bowl took a knee during the anthem during the regular season - one player took a knee in the preseason but was cut before the regular season began.
Jenkins, who raised a fist during the anthem as his own form of protest last season and already had addressed Trump's invitation reversal in a letter posted to Twitter, later told ESPN that he used the posters to redirect the conversation. "It just seemed like the opportunity arose when the White House disinvited the team".
Trump was referring to the new NFL policy that calls for players to stand on the field for the national anthem or remain in the locker room.

LeBron James has said that no matter who wins this year's National Basketball Association final, neither his Cavaliers or the Warriors will be accepting an invite to the White House from Donald Trump.
"Scott believes it's unfortunate that politics have invaded everything we do and thinks we should be able to put political differences aside long enough to celebrate a team winning the Super Bowl", his campaign said.
Mr. Trump said the team wanted to send a "smaller delegation" of players but fans attending the event "deserve better". "I will be there at 3:00 p.m. with the United States Marine Band and the United States Army Chorus to celebrate America".
At least two members of the champion team and the National Football League players' union pushed back, saying that the event should have gone forward if any Eagles planned to attend.
Last September, the possibility of a White House visit for the National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors broke down after Trump took issue with star guard Stephen Curry saying he would not attend a celebration. "America is a great nation, a community, a family".
