Ndamukong Suh again voted dirtiest player in NFL

Rich Schultz

Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh was the most frequent choice as the NFL's dirtiest player in a poll of 103 league members.

For the second consecutive year, Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was voted the NFL's dirtiest player according to a poll of 103 players by Sporting News.

Suh picked up roughly 31 percent of the vote in the poll, which represented a slight drop from his league-leading 32.4 percent in the same poll last season. Still viewed unanimously around the league as a player who will skirt the rules at any given moment, Suh's past transgressions were clearly the main reason so many players selected his name once again:

"Suh. I mean, the step-on and the choke and the kick and the arm bar. Enough said, right?" —NFC defensive player

"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." —NFC defensive player

Defensive back Cortland Finnegan also made an appearance in the top three for the second straight year, picking up 14 of the poll's 103 total votes. Dolphins guard Richie Incognito earned 19 nominations of his own to place second behind Suh's 32 votes, while no other player in the results received more than six votes. Even though some voters were forced to acknowledge the fact that Suh has not done anything serious in 2012, overwhelming results like this make it awfully hard to alter his poor reputation.
