It looks like the controversy over which Eagles will go to the White House and which will not is over.
Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network tweeted out a statement from Donald Trump stating that the Eagles would no longer be welcome.

While there will be a ceremony held tomorrow, it will not be one that celebrates the Eagles.
The statement indicates that the cancelation is due to the fact that all the players on the Super Bowl Champion Eagles roster do not plan to attend, most notably Malcolm Jenkins, Chris Long, LeGarrette Blount and Torrey Smith.
It is interesting to note that the president hosted the Patriots last year despite multiple players not attending in protest, including the aforementioned Blount and Long. Some veterans, like Tom Brady, did not attend last year either, claiming that there was, “no reason to go two times in the last three years.”
It seems the Eagles will simply need to repeat as world champions in order to earn another invitation.
