Pittsburgh Steelers left tackle Alejandro Villanueva does not appreciate having his background as a former Army Ranger used to strengthen political stances.

"I'm tired of the cameras in my face all the time," Villanueva told NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala after Sunday's win over the Baltimore Ravens. "It's completely unacceptable to use me as a tool to push an agenda."

Villanueva stood by himself outside the locker room for the national anthem in Week three, leading to his jersey sales skyrocketing. We can assume this was caused by those who felt that he sent a message in favor of the anthem. 

Villanueva later clarified that he did not stand by himself intentionally as he thought his teammates were right behind him.
