Alejandro Villanueva Most Popular NFL Player Right Now

Former Army Ranger and current Steelers left tackle Alejandro Villanueva served three tours in Afghanistan to preserve the right of others to protest. Villanueva is the only Steeler who stood for the National Anthem in Sunday's game.

He has certainly earned the right to express his own opinion on this subject.

Regarding Colin Kaepernick, Villanueva previously said,

"I don’t know if the most effective way is to sit down during the national anthem with a country that’s providing you freedom, providing you $16 million a year … when there are black minorities that are dying in Iraq and Afghanistan for less than $20,000 a year."

Alejandro Villanueva's jersey sales have suddenly surpassed team jerseys with names like “Brady” or “Rodgers” on them, to become the hottest selling NFL merchandise on the market.

Alejandro Villanueva is currently the most popular player in the NFL.

The NFL should be getting a clear message from Americans from all walks of life that we will not support those who disrespect our country and our flag during the games. We are the consumers of the product, without us their revenues will fall, if we choose to listen to political opinion we can turn to any network TV news station. We should not have to view the total disrespect of our country and pay good money to do it.
