In a Monday story by Forbes Magazine, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was listed as the fourth Most-Disliked NFL Player, according to the latest surveys from E-Poll Market Research.
Listed ahead of Roethlisberger are Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, San Diego Chargers linebacker Manti Te'o and Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.
