Ahead of Super Bowl LI, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Mohamed Sanu isn't interested in talking about President Trump's executive order banning immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries.

"Of course, I mean, my name is Mohamed," Sanu said Monday night in a press conference at Super Bowl Opening Night in Minute Maid Park. "I'm here because of my football talents, not because I’m Muslim. And I'm here to talk about football. So if you guys are going to continue to ask me about my religious beliefs, then I’m going to continue to tell you the same thing: I’m here to talk about football. I respect all you guys, I have tremendous love for all you guys, but I'm here to talk about football."

Sanu fielded questions about the ban six times in his first four minutes at the podium during the hour-long session. He repeatedly deflected and instead deferred to his team’s preparation against the New England Patriots.

"I have some feelings but I'm not really going to talk about it now," Sanu said. "Thank you."
