The Most Outlandish Player on Every NFL Team
Today, it seems as though more and more players are becoming more outlandish as they have access to Facebook, Twitter, beautiful women and more money than we could ever imagine.
These players have been arrested, suspended, caused fights, given great quotes and have been simply weird.
Here's my list of the most outlandish player on every NFL team.
Arizona Cardinals: Joey Porter
If you ever wanted an outlandish quote then you could always expect one from the infamous linebacker Joey Porter.
He's currently holding the fort down at the linebacker position in Arizona and continues to play with a fire rarely seen at the age of 34.
His most memorable quote was when the Steelers won the Super Bowl, and he had stated that he wanted to tell President George Bush that he didn’t like how he was running this country.
This was classic Joey Porter, and you have to love it.
Atlanta Falcons: John Abraham
John Abraham is a beast on the field. He's the leader of the Falcons and wreaks havoc on opposing team’s quarterbacks and running backs.
The reason he's on this list is simply because of the damage he puts on players. He seems to love contact and causing pain.
Baltimore Ravens: Terrell Suggs
The Ravens have the heart and soul of this team in Ray Lewis, but Terrell Suggs is hands down the most outlandish player on this team.
He loves the media and being on camera, which is evident by his weekly battles against Skip Bayless on First Take on ESPN.
He continues to wear shirts that show his hatred for the Steelers and Jets. Suggs has no sensor and doesn’t mind being fined after using expletives during interviews.
Suggs’ best quote come when the Ravens were playing the Steelers, and how he wanted to crush and hurt Ben on every play.
Buffalo Bills: Shawne Merriman
Shawne Merriman was a star in the making when he was with the San Diego Chargers. He had everything going for him and was a sack machine.
Then came his relationship with Tila Tequila and the steroid use. After those situations, his career took a dive.
He is currently exiled in Buffalo, and you can still see him do the lights-out celebration every once in awhile.
Carolina Panthers: Steve Smith
At 5’9” and 185lbs, Steve Smith is a receiver who plays like he is 6’5” and 230lbs. He's an absolute monster catching unbelievable balls from the air.
Smith knows that he's really good, and he's not afraid to let his opponents know it. He has been known to talk trash and dance in front of the defenders after scoring a touchdown.
His fight against Malcom Jenkins after Roman Harper pushed him showed how tough this little guy really is.
He even broke a teammates' face during training camp. This little guy is a hot head and loves to fight.
Chicago Bears: Jay Cutler
Jay Cutler is a complainer and whiner. He continues to have the stank face as he walks on the sideline.
He didn’t like the direction the Broncos were headed, and so, he was shipped out. Although he has shown some maturity this season before breaking his hand, I don’t know how long that will last.
Cutler is also re-engaged to reality star Kristin Cavallari, which boggles me because I don’t see how anyone can be in a relationship with this guy.
Cincinnati Bengals: Cedric Benson
Benson has been arrested three times since he was drafted by the Bears in 2005. He has also had DUI’s, been pepper sprayed and fought on numerous occasions.
The guy loves to get into trouble off the field. He's a true knucklehead when it comes to being in society.
Benson has had better luck on the field being a true gentleman and giving the Bengals a solid ground game. He seems to have matured, but people better watch out when he has a drink or two.
Cleveland Brown: Peyton Hillis
The Madden curse is real. Ever since Peyton Hillis was heralded as the new cover boy for the best sports game ever, he has been non-existent this season.
He has sat out games with fake injuries because of his contract situation, and he actually believes that he's better then he really is.
He needs to prove to the Browns a little more by playing well this season, but that apparently won’t happen, and this prima donna will likely not sign his contract with the Browns.
Dallas Cowboys: Tony Romo
From a guy being un-drafted to the quarterback of America’s team is a feat in itself.
Being on America’s team means that you need a trophy woman by your side, and that's what Romo went after. He dated Jessica Simpson and Carrie Underwood who both were highly successful at the time.
He had to settle for a pageant queen and news anchor Candice Crawford. She's also the sister of Chase Crawford from “Gossip Girl” for your information. I guess this is better than nothing.
Anyways, Romo loves the spotlight more than he loves football, and the world can see it. He needs to win to slow down the criticism.
Denver Broncos: Tim Tebow
People hate the guy because he prays, talks about God and is just too much of a nice guy. He's not a true quarterback and cannot run a pro-style offense at the moment, but he continues to win.
He currently has won four of his five games as a starter and has proved the nay-sayers wrong.
Tim Tebow is on this list because of the fact that people hate him so much, and he seems to take it in and love it.
He will continue to do the kneel-down Tebow prayer and will be the most talked about player in the league.
Detroit Lions: Ndamukong Suh
Suh is one of the most intelligent and engaging players when not playing football. But when he gets on the field and the ball is hiked, he seems to turn on a mean streak. It's almost like two different people, and the dude seems possessed at times.
He's currently appealing a two-game suspension, but I don’t know why. He clearly tried to step on the player on the ground and hurt him.
He doesn’t mind the penalties on the field if it means that he put some fear on the opposing team’s quarterbacks.
Suh’s game is reminiscent of the Raiders in the 70s and 80s. The guy is nasty.
Green Bay Packers: Aaron Rodgers
Aaron Rodgers is becoming a household name. He was the guy known for having the longest downhill slide on draft day, but now is known for replacing Brett Favre and bringing another Super Bowl to Green Bay.
The Packers are a historic organization and continue to have stand-up guys on their roster. So it was hard for me to find the most outlandish player on this roster.
I decided to choose the guy that continues to show up on commercials and advertisements all year long.
Aaron Rodgers has an outgoing personality and is remembered for his championship belt touchdown celebration.
Houston Texans: Matt Leinart
From Heisman Trophy winner to NFL dud. Matt Leinart was suppose to be the next great NFL quarterback, but instead, has been a bust.
He's nervous in the pocket and can’t seem to make all the NFL throws. The injury to Matt Shaub was suppose to give him his first chance to showcase his talents, but he was then injured in his first game as the starter.
Leinart has had his string of partying, drinking a lot and having a lack of motivation. With his new shoulder injury, expect Matt to be sitting in jacuzzis and drinking his sorrows away.
Indianapolis Colts: Reggie Wayne
Reggie Wayne is never shy of saying what's on his mind. He doesn’t even mind that his comments are directed towards his own teammates.
His lack of faith with newly signed Kerry Collins was highly publicized and criticized, which I don’t blame him.
Wayne’s most memorable moment was when he came to training camp with a hard hat, a construction vest, lunch pale and dump truck.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Maurice Jones-Drew
The bowling ball that is Maurice Jones-Drew is a true class act, but this guy loves to dance and flex his biceps.
After a big run or touchdown, you can always expect Maurice to show off his shuffle dance move or pose as if he is competing for Mr. Olympia.
It really sucks that his talents and dance moves are being wasted on a bad Jaguars team.
Kansas City Chiefs: Jamaal Charles
The Chiefs are a team with really good and nice guys so it was hard to choose an outlandish player on this squad. So I decided to pick the best player on the team.
Jamaal Charles is currently injured, but his speed and moves on the field are filthy and outlandish.
I can’t wait for Charles to be healthy and terrorize opponents next season.
Miami Dolphins: Brandon Marshall
Brandon Marshall is a diva, which is expected for a top-flight receiver, but the guy has a lot of issues.
He has been stabbed by his wife, been shipped out of Denver and has had some fun with media. Marshall has also have numerous domestic violence altercations, DUI’s and has been suspended on numerous occasions.
Earlier this season, he stated that his goal was to get ejected by the second quarter of the Jets game. If that isn’t crazy and outlandish, then I don’t know what is.
Minnesota Vikings: Jared Allen
The mullet, pink Cadillac and redneck look is what makes Jared Allen who he is. The guy is a character and wants to make people laugh. It doesn’t hurt that he's one of the best pass-rushers in the league.
“The mullet isn’t a hairdo, it’s definitely a lifestyle.” This was one of the best quotes I had ever heard, and it was perfect coming from Jared Allen.
New England Patriots: Chad Ocho Cinco
This guy legally changed his name from Chad Johnson to Chad Ocho Cinco. Isn’t that outlandish enough?
He has raced horses, been fined more than any other player for his touchdown celebrations and is a reality star. The guy knows how to be in the spotlight.
Chad hasn’t done much for his new team the Patriots, but when he first arrived, he was looking for a Patriots fan’s house to stay at while he was looking for his own place.
I love how outlandish Ocho Cinco is, and I'm hoping he can get his swag back in these last few games of the season.
New York Giants: Osi Umenyiora
Osi is a tenacious defensive lineman who knows how to get after the quarterback. The dude is an absolute beast.
He has followed in the foot steps of Michael Strahan and given the Giants an awesome pass rush. Osi has been subpar this year because of his contract negotiations and has been hampered by supposed injuries.
What's crazy is that his ex-girlfriend, model Selita Ebanks took him back after he got another woman pregnant.
First of all, if Selita was my girl, I would never cheat on her. Second is that Osi should realize that she only took him back because of the money.
Osi needs to get out of the spotlight and help the Giants get in the playoffs.
New York Jets: Bart Scott
“Can’t Wait!” Do I really have to say anything else?
Bart Scott is an angry gentleman who said a quote that was heard around the world.
This guy talks, and he talks a lot. The thing with Scott is that he can back up what he says. I can’t wait for Bart Scott to be in the playoffs and give us another great quote.
New Orleans Saints: Jimmy Graham
Basketball players are the most outlandish players in sports, and so, I had to put the former Miami University basketball standout on this list.
Graham has a lot of touchdowns this season, and he loves dunking the ball in the field goal post every time. He is such a show-off.
Oakland Raiders: Sebastian Janikowski
Doesn’t Sebastian Janikowski look like he's recovering from a hangover every time he steps on the field on Sundays? Well, I wouldn’t doubt that he was.
In his days at Florida State, Sebastian was known as the "Polish Powderkeg" for his drink-first mentality and study philosophy later. He continued to party at frat houses and night clubs, and that carried on into the NFL.
The guy has been arrested for possession of the date rape drug, drinking, fighting and more. He simply doesn’t care, but he can kick the pigskin.
Philadelphia Eagles: DeSean Jackson
DeSean Jackson has uncoverable speed and is filthy when he wants to be on the field. He's currently wanting to be paid as a top receiver, and I think it has hindered his play this season.
Jackson is infamous for his touchdown celebrations and taunting opponents with his blinding speed.
But what I remember most is his premature touchdown celebration against the Cowboys where he dropped the ball at the 1-yard line.
He has had his fair share of bonehead plays, but Jackson can play.
Pittsburgh Steelers: James Harrison
I would be absolutely scared to take the field with James Harrison knowing that he wants to hurt players.
The former Defensive Player of the Year is the bruiser for the Steelers defense and has laid some guys out last season resulting in huge fines.
Harrison’s interview about Goodell and posing with his numerous guns during the lockout put fear in me and probably every player in the league.
St. Louis Rams: Brandon Lloyd
Brandon Lloyd is a receiver who can never stick with a team. He finally had his first breakout season last year and is known for making unbelievable catches.
He led the league in yards and made his first Pro Bowl and became a prima donna after last season. Lloyd also blasphemed in not believing in Tebow and was quickly shipped out.
He better keep quiet if he ever wants a big contract and to stick with one team more then a year.
San Diego Chargers: Antonio Garay
If there was a Dennis Rodman of the NFL, then it would have to be the Chargers’ Antonio Garay. Garay loves to have designs on all the hair on his head, and he adds a lot of color too.
He’s had a jack-o-latern, the Twin Towers and even the United States flag on his head.
You would also figure that a 6’4”, 310-lb nose tackle would be driving a huge sport utility vehicle, but instead, he can be seen in a Hello Kitty Smart Two car. Now this car is small and what's up with the Hello Kitty?
Garay is an oddball, but I guess it works for him.
San Francisco 49ers: Braylon Edwards
Braylon Edwards punched LeBron James’ friend after an altercation at a nightclub. LeBron stated it was because Edwards was jealous and envious of him.
Now, I am not a fan of LeBron, and I despise a lot of what he has done, but I think he was right with this statement.
Edwards always thought he was better than he really was because of his college career and high draft pick, but he really isn’t good.
LeBron was the king of Ohio not him, and he should get over it.
Seattle Seahawks: Marshawn Lynch
Marshawn Lynch has had his fair share of legal issues. He has been arrested for marijuana possession, domestic violence and a hit-and-run in Buffalo. Lynch is a true headcase but a solid running back.
He's from Oakland where everyone has dreads, a grill and they get “Hyphy,” which means they get crazy.
I wonder if he will ever cut his dreads.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Albert Haynesworth
After winning the Defensive Player of the Year award, Haynesworth was given a massive $100 million contract with the Redskins, which was the worst thing that could have happened for him.
New coach Mike Shanahan and Haynesworth clashed from day one. Haynesworth came to camp not wanting to play in a 3-4 scheme and arriving overweight. He never cared to get into shaped, and I don’t think he will ever get back to a high level.
His stint with the Patriots did not work as it seemed like he was still out of shape. He's currently with a young Tampa Bay squad hoping to revive his career.
The Redskins wasted a lot of money on a player who provided very little and whined a lot.
Tennessee Titans: Chris Johnson
The gold teeth and flashy old school cars is what Chris Johnson is about. He's also one of the best and fastest running backs in the league.
His holdout for a new contract earlier this season was known throughout the league. He finally received the money that he wanted, but it came with consequences. The shortened training camp and new coach really hurt Johnson’s game, and he has not looked anything close to his old self.
I hope Johnson isn’t one of the classic cases of showing him the money only to not work hard and produce anymore because I love watching him play.
Washington Redskins: DeAngelo Hall
DeAngelo Hall is an absolute clown throughout his career. He loves to get in the mix of things, and more times than not, is the instigator in fights.
His fight against the Giants’ Brandon Jacobs made me laugh because Jacobs is a monster of a man.
There was also the altercation when he was trying to fight the Falcons’ sideline including coach Mike Smith.
If you are ever watching a Redskins game, you can always expect DeAngelo Hall to be in a fight or having some sort of rift with an opponent.
