Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett said during Super Bowl Opening Night (also known as media day) that he wasn’t sure if he would attend the White House if the Patriots won the Super Bowl.

“I don’t know, I’ve got to win the Super Bowl,” Bennett said. “But most likely no. I don’t support the guy that’s in the (White) House.”
