The 10 Biggest Jerks in the NFL
There are a lot of players in the NFL that are me first, team second kind of guys. Or there are players whose off the field actions are appalling.
Here is my list of the biggest jerks in the NFL.
1. Larry Johnson, RB, Kansas City Chiefs
Larry Johnson, RB, Kansas City Chiefs.
Why do these big, oversized football players think they can get by with abusing women? It’s sickening and disgusting. Johnson has now been accused twice of abusing women in bars.
Way to go big man. What a punk.
2. Adam Jones
Adam “PACMAN” Jones, CB/KR, Dallas Cowboys.
This guy has to be a complete idiot. He got suspended for a year after one of his bodyguards shot and paralyzed a man in a strip club in Las Vegas.
He then gets reinstated and signed by the Cowboys and how does he repay them? He gets drunk and starts a fight with the bodyguard Dallas hired to keep an eye on him.
This guy has real issues. And he’s not even THAT talented or done anything in the NFL to think he could even get buy with crap like this.
What an imbecile.
3. Plaxico Burress, WR, New York Giants
Plaxico Burress, WR, New York Giants.
What is it with these prima donna wide receivers who think they are above their team and above their coach?
Burress has been a head case his entire career and you just have to get sick and tired of a teammate who doesn’t play by the same rules you do and mostly gets away with it.
And his actions this year really show you what a jerk Burress is. First he misses a day of practice without informing the team claiming he took his kids to school and that he is a "family man."
Not too long after that this family man shoots himself in the leg at a nightclub and tries to cover it up.
No doubt he has a ton of talent. Too bad he is also one of the biggest jerks in the league as well.
4. Terrell Owens, WR, Dallas Cowboys
Terrell Owens, WR, Dallas Cowboys.
If there were a hall of fame for jerks in the NFL, Owens would probably be the charter member.
He trashed QB Jeff Garcia in San Francisco, and called him gay.
Then he completely blew up the Philadelphia Eagles team with his petulant, me first feud with Donovan McNabb and divided the locker room.
And now he is mouthing off again about not getting enough catches in Dallas and got into fight with Jason Witten because Witten was getting more touches than he was.
ME FIRST, ME SECOND, ME THIRD, Team maybe FOUR — after my money. What a team player!
5. Chad Johnson, WR, Cincinnati Bengals
Chad “Ocho Stinko” Johnson, WR, Cincinnati Bengals.
You can put Ocho Stinko right up there with Burress and Owens as being another loudmouth, me first, thumb your nose at the coach jerks.
Does he realize what a clown he is? He is a joke.
6. Jerry Jones, Owner, Dallas Cowboys
Jerry Jones, Owner, Dallas Cowboys.
I guess since Michael Irvin got away with stabbing a teammate in the neck with a pair of scissors, cocaine, and whores that Jerry figures anybody can get away with anything and will sign anyone.
Well, I’m glad the Dallas Cowboys are in such disarray. That is what you get for signing Pacman Jones and Tank Johnson.
7. Kellen Winslow, Jr., TE, Cleveland Browns
Kellen Winslow, Jr., TE, Cleveland Browns.
Another prima donna, talented hot head. He was a hot head at the U. of Miami too.
His ex-coach got sick of him and the Browns tried to trade him. He is a constant mouth off and his accusation of the team not handling his staph infection properly may be true, but his past behavior makes anything he says fall on deaf ears. Grow up.
8. Al Davis, Owner, Oakland Raiders
Al Davis, Owner, Oakland Raiders.
Al Davis is the Godfather of Jerkdom. His handling of the Lane Kiffin firing was so unbelievably immature, and at his age? What a petulant, weak man.
He is a lifelong jerk, constantly suing the NFL and feuding with players and coaches. I still can’t get over the way he treated Marcus Allen.
9. Brett Favre, QB, Presumably Retired
Brett Farve, QB, In Limbo
First of all he turned his retirement from the NFL last year into a soap opera, which was bad enough. He kept the Packers in limbo year after year with his annual drama of is he or isn't he retiring.
This year he reportedly communicated with the Lions about how to beat his old team. Whether true or not, Farve’s whole “ahh shucks” shtick has now worn thin.
Retire and stay retired this time. Your time has passed.
10. Vernon Davis, TE, San Francisco 49'ers
Vernon Davis, TE, San Francisco.
Way to go Mike Singletary for putting this BUST of a No. 1 draft pick in his place. Not only does Davis not live up to his potential, he’s a jerk too. Go figure.
Honorable Mention, Michael Vick, Jailbird
Honorable Mention, Michael Vick, Jailbird
You can't have an biggest jerks in the NFL list without including Michael Vick.
