HOUSTON — Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett on Sunday said he isn’t worried about upsetting team owner Robert Kraft by not attending the team’s trip to the White House as Super Bowl champions.
Bennett said after the Patriots’ 34-28 win over the Falcons that he’s ‘‘not going to go’’ to the traditional meet-and-greet with the president. It will be the first visit of a Super Bowl champion to Washington since Trump was sworn into office.
Trump’s positions have alienated some athletes, which has raised questions about whether some might choose to skip the trip while Trump is in office.
Bennett said he isn’t concerned about any flak and said he thinks the team believes ‘‘in whatever I want to do.’’
Kraft is a friend and supporter of Trump and attended a celebration dinner in Washington the night before his inauguration.
