Pederson, Eagles moving on from canceled WH visit

Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson says the team has shifted its focus back to football following the cancellation of their Super Bowl victory celebration at the White House.”I was looking forward to going down [to Washington D.C.], obviously,” Pederson told reporters Wednesday. “We did something last season that was very special. It’s a milestone here in the City of Philadelphia, our organization, and I was looking forward to going down and being recognized as world champions. It is what it is.”We’re here today. Got an OTA practice and focused on these next couple of days. Getting through next week and on to training camp. So, that’s where we’re at.”Pederson repeatedly dismissed questions related to the canceled visit, reiterating the team was focused on finishing its final two days of organized team activities ahead of next week’s minicamp. Pederson added he wasn’t bothered that he was answering questions related to the event instead of team owner Jeffrey Lurie.”No. No, we’re united,” Pederson said. “We’re a team. Been that way since I’ve been here.”
