He used his experience in the Army and compared it to playing the tackle position in football – something he’s in his seventh year of doing professionally. His quote from 2020 was brought up during NBC’s Sunday night broadcast as he and the Ravens played the Jefes de Kansas City.

It reminds me of jumping out of airplanes when I was in the Army,” Villanueva was quoted as saying. “There is very little upside. The best thing that can happen when you jump is you survive. Playing tackle is kind of the same way. The best thing that can happen is that nothing happens.
