After a seven-year run with the Pittsburgh Steelers, offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva is on to his next chapter with the Baltimore Ravens. Between 96 consecutive games and two Pro Bowl selections, one might think of this as a bittersweet goodbye.

But with his latest comments, including a not-so-veiled shot at former teammate JuJu Smith-Schuster, it looks like Villanueva may be happier in his newest home.

Villanueva certainly did not mince his words with this comment. He may not have expressly said Smith-Schuster's name but it's quite clear who these comments are directed at.

The two-time Pro Bowl tackle claimed he'll have a better time guarding for a run-first team such as the Ravens. He went in on Smith-Schuster for all of the receivers' continual on-field antics, especially the pre-game TikTok videos. It's easy to see that Villanueva wasn't impressed.

Villanueva may have the final laugh here, too. According to FanDuel Sportsbook, the Ravens own the best odds (+115) to win the AFC North title while Pittsburgh is +420.
