Alejandro Villanueva apologizes to Mike Tomlin and his teammates for ‘throwing them under the bus‘. But was his apology speech made under duress?
Many are thinking coach Mike Tomlin threatened him with termination of his contract. The NFL may have played it’s part in this flip-flop where big money is king!
Alejandro Villanueva, a Steelers lineman and U.S. Army veteran, was pictured standing alone before Sunday’s game during the national anthem while the rest of the team refused to take the field in protest. His stand has made his jersey one of the top sellers in the NFL.
Unfortunately I threw my teammates under the bus, unintentionally, Villanueva said in a press conference Monday. Every single time I see that picture of me standing by myself I feel embarrassed.
We think this is absolute Pittsburgh Steelers Bullshit! Was Villanueva threatened by coach Mike Tomlin or the NFL? We don’t doubt it for a second!
