While Baltimore Ravens’ Benjamin Watson supports Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins’ decision to not visit the White House to celebrate his team’s Super Bowl LII victory, the tight end said he would probably not follow suit.
“I’m behind Malcolm. I’m behind him 100 percent if he doesn’t want to go. I probably would go out of respect for the office, if not the man in the office,” Watson said Tuesday on “Fox & Friends.”
“But I think it points to a larger atmosphere that we’re in right now,” he continued. “Politics have become so divisive where it’s a tribal mentality where people go into their different corner.”
