Alejandro Villanueva Impressively Addresses The Baltimore Media

Later today we will post the entire transcript from today’s Zoom press conference with the newest Raven, offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva. Until then, I thought to share these notes and video clips with you.

• Currently focused on learning the new playbook and position – more about the playbook
• Looking forward to a more balanced offense
• Said that passing so frequently in Pittsburgh gave edge rushers a competitive advantage to try different things to improve their effectiveness. Mentioned Myles Garrett by name.
• A balanced attack allows the offensive lineman to be the aggressor. In the process Al threw some shade on Juju Smith-Schuster (see Tweet below)
• Free agency was a process and a mystery
• Believes that there are labels given in the NFL. Some are first-round picks. Others are undrafted free agents. UDFA is the label Al believes he’s saddled with.
• No angst towards the Steelers. “Everybody makes business decisions”, driven by direction and the salary cap.
• Chance to play the Steelers was a motivator in his decision to come to Baltimore.
• One of his biggest surprises upon entering the country and the NFL – individualism. Said he was surprised how many individual awards are given to those playing a team game.
