Vick, Burress, Big Ben top Forbes’ list of most disliked players

Michael Vick could become the NFL’s version of Mother Teresa and still be despised by a large segment of the population that will always see him as the guy who went to jail for operating a dogfighting ring.

Vick has made a concerted effort to improve his public image since signing with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2010, but personal growth wasn’t enough to keep him from being named the most disliked player in the NFL, according to a recent poll published by Forbes.

The poll — conducted by Nielsen and E-Poll Market Research — was limited to active players who scored a minimum 10 percent public-awareness level.

The list in full:

1. Vick

2. Plaxico Burress

3. Ben Roethlisberger

4. Albert Haynesworth

5. Jay Cutler

6. Chad Ochocinco

7. Vince Young

8. Carson Palmer

9. Tony Romo

10. Jeremy Shockey
