Anquan Boldin is the latest former Raven to reveal that he won’t attend the Super Bowl champions’ trip to the White House.
Boldin wrote on Twitter on Monday afternoon that he will remain in San Francisco and participate in Organized Team Activities with the 49ers, who acquired him in a trade with the Ravens.
“Unfortunately I’m going to miss a great opportunity to be with my Super Bowl team at the White House,” Boldin wrote. “I know those guys will proudly share our Super Bowl memories and unforgettable moments on my behalf.”
Although President Obama has invited all of last year’s Ravens to attend the White House ceremony, some who have left the team this offseason have decided not to attend. Cary Williams and Dennis Dixon, who are both on the Eagles, will be busy at a mandatory minicamp in Philadelphia, and Bernard Pollard, now of the Titans, said he didn’t want to be in the same room as “certain people,” presumably meaning head coach John Harbaugh.
Most of the players on last year’s Super Bowl team will visit the White House on Wednesday.
