Two former Nebraska players topped a Sporting News poll released Thursday as the dirtiest players in the NFL.
In a poll of 103 players from 27 teams, Detroit defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh took the top spot in the poll for the second straight year. Miami offensive guard Richie Incognito finished second in the poll.
Suh received 32 votes, 13 more than Incognito. St. Louis cornerback Cortland Finnegan finished third with 14 votes.
One NFC defensive player said of Suh, “I mean, the step-on and the choke and the kick and the arm bar. Enough said, right?”
Another NFC defensive player said, “Suh. He hasn't done anything crazy (this year). The type of hits he puts on quarterbacks, the way he finishes guys — some of them are legal, but a lot of them I'd say are over the top.”
Players aren't the only ones that don't appreciate the former Husker. In October, a Nielsen and E-Poll Market Research poll of NFL fans found that Suh was the the least-liked player in the league with a 19% approval rating.
