It’s long been a tradition that Super Bowl champions pay a visit to the White House after securing their title and the Broncos will keep it alive next week.
The White House announced Wednesday that the Broncos will be in town on Monday to receive congratulations from President Obama, who will be greeting the eighth and final Super Bowl champions of his term. Cornerback Aqib Talib said this week that he had a new suit made for the occasion.
“I’m looking forward to seeing how that looks,” Talib said, via KUSA. “Meet Obama before he get up out [of there]. Something I’ve never done before. With these guys, too, man, there are so many characters in this locker room, so just to be able to do something I’ve never done before with these guys, it will be a blast for us.”
The Broncos say that close to 100 members of the organization will make the trip and that some of those who have moved on since the end of the season will take part as well. Peyton Manning is listed in that latter group and may be able to provide President Obama some advice on next steps after leaving a high-profile job.
