It's official: The Philadelphia Eagles are heading to The White House.
Pederson's announcement comes less than a week after White House deputy press secretary Lindsay Walters confirmed the Eagles had been invited to attend a June 5 celebration.
The invitation date lands in the middle of Philadelphia's organized team activities, which are scheduled from June 4-7.
It remains to be seen which Eagles players will attend the ceremony. Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz said Tuesday he plans to attend, adding he doesn't see the event as a "political thing" even if some of his teammates don't feel the same way.
