Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid said if an invitation to the White House is extended for his team's Super Bowl LIV win on Sunday, he'll accept.

"I mean, I'll be there," Reid said following the 31-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. "If they're inviting us, I'll be there. It's quite an honor."

Of course, Reid was only asked the question because since Donald Trump was inaugurated in 2017, it's become all but a surety that championship teams continue the traditional visit.

Several teams have declined invitations to the White House since the divisive president took office, and others have had invitations either not offered or withdrawn by Trump. There also have been teams that attended the White House ceremony without full attendance.

Seven players from the World Series champion Washington Nationals' active roster, and many more from the 40-man squad, were absent when the team visited the White House in November. Several players from the 2018 Capitals also skipped the trip last March, and the 2019 Mystics weren't invited.

It remains unknown whether Reid will be accompanied by his entire team when Kansas City makes the trip to Washington.
