Devin McCourty played as cornerback for Rutgers back in the early 2000's.  He's now the owner of two Super Bowl rings with the New England Patriots.

McCourty who grew up in Montvale, New Jersey will not attend the customary visit to the White House as Super Bowl champs.

And he's the second Patriot player to decline the invitation.  Martellus Bennett, New England's tight end, will also decline the invitation.

According to,

"I'm not going to the White House," McCourty wrote in a text message to TIME from the team bus. "Basic reason for me is I don't feel accepted in the White House. With the president having so many strong opinions and prejudices I believe certain people might feel accepted there while others won't."
