A poll of players has revealed that Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is the dirtiest player in the NFL. A poll of fans has bestowed a slightly less desirable honor on Eagles quarterback Mike Vick.

Per Tom Van Riper of, a new poll from Nielsen and E-Poll Market Research has found that Vick is the most disliked NFL player. Specifically, 60 percent of the respondents identified Vick as a player they “dislike,” “dislike somewhat,” or “dislike a lot.”

Jets receiver Plaxico Burress finished second, with 56 percent. Third on the list was Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, at 49 percent. In fourth place, former Pats defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, with 46 percent.

All four players have had trouble with the law, which surely has done nothing to enhance their standing.

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler (38 percent), Patriots receiver Chad Ochocinco (35 percent), Eagles quarterback Vince Young (32 percent), Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer (31 percent), Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo (29 percent), and Panthers tight end Jeremy Shockey (29 percent) also made the list.
