Michael Vick has come all the way back from prison to star in the NFL again. But he apparently still won’t win a popularity contest among the league’s fans. reported Monday that Vick is the NFL’s most disliked player, according to a poll by Nielsen and E-Poll Market Research. reports that 60 percent of those polled picked said they “dislike,” “dislike somewhat,” or “dislike a lot” the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback.

Second on the list was New York Jets receiver Plaxico Burress at 56 percent, who also has returned from a prison stay, followed by Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who was accused of sexual assault last year but wasn’t charged.

New England Patriots defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, who disappointed with the Washington Redskins after signing a $100 million contract before his trade to New England, came in at No. 4 at 46 percent and Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, who had his toughness questioned after leaving the last season’s NFC Championship Game early with an injury, finished fifth at 38 percent.

The rest of the top 10: Patriots receiver Chad Ochocinco (35 percent), Eagles backup QB Vince Young (32 percent), Oakland Raiders QB Carson Palmer (31 percent), Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and Carolina Panthers tight end Jeremy Shockey, who both were at 29 percent.

Only active NFL players who had a 10 percent “awareness level” with the public were considered for the poll, reported.
