While players like cornerback Quinten Rollins made his OTA practice debut today, others took the day off for a very understandable reason. New Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Lerentee McCray left Green Bay in order to join his former-Denver Broncos teammates for their visit to the White House.

After going undrafted in 2013, McCray spent his first three seasons with the Broncos, winning Super Bowl 50 this past February. Though no longer with the Denver, McCray was allowed to participate in the team's D.C. trip, part of the tradition of championship teams visiting the sitting president.

Not every ex-member of the 2015 Broncos decided to tag along. One-time starting quarterback Brock Osweiler, now with the Houston Texans, decided to skip the trip in order to spend more time with his new teammates and coaching staff. McCray felt differently, however, preferring to head "to the white house today with my brothers one last time!"

The Packers signed Lerentee McCray to a one-year deal in April.
