Brady Won’t Be Visiting White House WednesdayEric Seals - USA TODAY Sports

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady missed the team’s visit to the White House two years ago after New England beat the Seahawks, and it sounds like it will be back-to-back trips that he won’t be a part of.

According to Mike Reiss of ESPN, the quarterback revealed he won’t be able to attend today’s visit due to “personal family matters”.

As many fans might be aware, the quarterback’s mother has been battling cancer, which was a big topic of discussion during their championship run. While it’s unknown if today’s news is related to that, whatever the issue, it’s significant enough for Brady to miss an event he called back in February a really a “great experience”.

“It really is a great experience,” Brady said via PFT. “Putting politics aside, it never was a political thing. At least, it never was to me. It meant you won a championship and you got to experience something cool with your team, with your teammates. Everyone has their own choice. It’s an offseason. These days are valuable for everybody. You only get so much time with your family and friends, and if people don’t want to go they don’t want to go and that’s their choice.”

Brady said that he hopes that the team might win it again in the coming years, which might give him another opportunity.

“Hopefully, if we accomplish the goal of winning a championship in future years, we will be back on the South Lawn again soon,” wrote Brady in his statement. “Have a great day!”
