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.
