Newton, Romo, Sherman among NFLers headed to White House


You can get to the White House by winning the Super Bowl, or just by being a star.

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton will be among the NFL players in attendance at the White House Correspondents’ dinner, according to multiple reports.

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman (who earned a trip to D.C. the old fashioned way), Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins are also scheduled to attend the high-profile event.

Newton (ankle) and Romo (back) are easing their way back from offseason surgeries, but both have made multiple public appearances this offseason, and are expected to be ready for training camp.

    Kirk Cousins? Srysly?

    Richard Sherman cannot be considered an “all star”

    He was a product of the system.

    Nothing more than a normal, average cornerback.

    Now Xavier Rhodes is an actual all-star at that respective position.

    Newton was invited because of all the years he’s been working towards his degree. By correspondants.

    And how many Superbowls has Xavier Rhodes won?

    Yeah, that’s what I thought.

    Cousins will be working that first set of tables on the right side of the dining hall as you enter.

    Glad the President has time to host these employed guys, while the unemployed wait for a shovel ready job.

    Three of them can barely speak English.It’s a set up to start a team overseas.Maybe they can decipher what’s going on

    newton and romo will choke in the 4th table of the dining hall

    If AP is taking his kids the White House better set up another table.

    Kirk Cousins goes to a White House dinner while last week RGIII drove the pace car before a Nascar race. That’s pretty telling.

    What exaclty qualifies Romo to be invited to anything but perhaps Peyton’s quarterback camp for lessons?

  12. ialwayswantedtobeabanker says: May 1, 2014 5:50 PM

    Why is Richard Sherman being constantly thrown in our face? The guy’s “in-your-face-enough-as-it-is”.

  13. cowboylover says: May 1, 2014 6:04 PM

    What a nice honor for all of these men.

  14. getitrightflorio says: May 1, 2014 6:10 PM

    Why isn’t Ryan Tannehill going to be there, oh well he will be there next year when the fins win the big one!!!

  15. seahawkfanfrom1970s says: May 1, 2014 6:13 PM

    Yeah and Christian Ponder is an “actual” All Star too.


  16. vikesr4reel says: May 1, 2014 6:14 PM

    Why isn’t ponder going??

  17. vikesr4reel says: May 1, 2014 6:22 PM

    Why isn’t ponder going???

    Did someone with Kaepernick as their qb just make a joke about choking in the 4th?

  19. zack2482 says: May 1, 2014 7:21 PM

    Romo taking lessons from Peyton. I think he did just fine with throwing over 500 yards and 5 Tds.

  20. captainspangled says: May 1, 2014 8:11 PM

    Does Nolan Nawrocki burn with rage seeing that evil Cam Newton “fake” that smile in the photo of him at the top of this article?

  21. coachkilla6 says: May 1, 2014 8:49 PM

    Rumor has it that the President has personally ordered the Surgeon General to snip AP during the visit. Apparently, the Affordable Care Act cannot afford anymore of AP’s illegitimate offspring.

    If sherman were on the jags or texans we wouldnt no his name i hope aaron rodgers picks him apart week 1

  23. gammynomnom says: May 1, 2014 10:19 PM

    Kaepernick was invited but he passed and Richard Sherman jumped all over it.

  24. robgilman says: May 1, 2014 10:32 PM

    Ok, the list made generally logical sense up until the Kirk Cousins part. Why is he there?

  25. bert1913 says: May 1, 2014 11:27 PM

    who could blame them for not inviting santa clara 49ers qb?

  26. usdcoyotesfan says: May 2, 2014 1:06 AM

    Can Obama overturn the result of the 2012 Packers-Seahawks game?

  27. kappy32 says: May 2, 2014 2:18 AM

    Cousins over RGMe at the White House? Someone is going to be butt hurt over that.

  28. tahnoonzee says: May 2, 2014 7:14 AM

    so they can hear more LIES

  29. chris1cat says: May 2, 2014 7:38 AM

    White House Correspondents’ dinner.

    Main Course: King Crab

  30. logicalvoicesays says: May 2, 2014 9:56 AM

    Christian Ponder>Kirk Cousins>RGMe

  31. politicallyincorrect says: May 2, 2014 10:56 AM

    I imagine Luck and AP must feel like the bball player in the ESPN commercial that gets in some Top 10 Club, then finds his fellow honorees are a bunch of putz/s….
