They are the Hernandez death of apparent suicide and the Patriots' visit to the White House.

That's nearly certainly true, but it also doesn't change the fact that Martellus Bennett, Devin McCourty, Legarrette Blount, Alan Branch, and a whole bunch of other players weren't there.

Brady defended his friendship with Trump throughout the campaign, though avoided making any clear public declarations of political support.

Trump's welcome to the team, scheduled for early afternoon, is coming hours after the news from MA prisons officials that ex-Patriot tight end Aaron Hernandez hanged himself in his prison cell.

Trump's choice for deputy secretary of commerce, Chicago Cubs co-owner Todd Ricketts, has withdrawn his nomination, a source says, amid reports of difficulties untangling his financial holdings to the satisfaction of the government ethics watchdog.

New England Patriots CEO Robert Kraft awarded President Donald Trump with a helmet and jersey bearing the president's name.

Vice President Mike Pence says in Japan that Washington will work with its allies and China to put economic and diplomatic pressure on North Korea but adds that the United States would defeat any attack with an "overwhelming response".

Hernandez was serving a life sentence for murder but was recently acquitted on separate double murder charges.

The president praised the "culture dedicated to winning" that coach Bill Belichick created in the Patriots organization.

Trump did not mention Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady, who did not attend the ceremony after announcing Wednesday he would not go because of family matters.

Malcolm Butler has not yet signed his first-round restricted free agent tender with the New England Patriots, which would pay him $3.91 million for the 2017 National Football League season. with that being said, this leads to some uncertainty about Butler future there, particularly after they spent a pile of money on cornerback Stephon Gilmore.

Trump talked about how "tough" Belichick is and how resilient the team was to come back from 25 points down in an overtime victory against the Falcons. "I'll see you in a minute".

"I think I got this, but thank you", Spicer responded.

After the triumphant victory, tight end Martellus Bennett quickly made it clear he was not coming to the White House and other teammates followed.

Brady's mother, Galynn, who attended just one game last season (Super Bowl LI in February) as she battled cancer, was visiting Boston on Wednesday.
