Ben Roethlisberger: Big Ben has been accused of sexual assault two times in his career, once of assaulting a 20 year old Georgia college student at a dance club, and the other time he was accused of raping a Nevada resort hostess.
But he's a great quarterback with two rings on his finger...

Michael Vick: Michel Vick was a great college quarterback, and became a dynamic and fun to watch player in the pros, and in 2004 becoming the greatest football player Madden ever put in their games with a dynamic 99 overall rating. That being said, he went to jail for dog fighting in 2007 in one of the NFL's biggest scandals of the 21st century, something that earns him a spot on this roster.


Adrian Peterson: In 2011 AP had a potential career ending injury, only to come back a season later and fall nine yards short of the single season rushing record and earned himself a league MVP award. Even though Bo Jackson is the only league running back to ever play pro baseball and football, it can be argued AP has a great swing of the bat as well, as he was arrested in 2014 for child abuse, allegedly beating his son with a tree branch, a "switch."

Le’veon Bell: This young running back once told a cop, "I didn't know you could get DUI for being high" and that is part of the incident that lands him on this list. Bell, alongside a fellow Steelers RB and teammate LeGerrette Blount, were arrested for driving high and for possession of "that sweet sweet chiba," and since that day bell has continued to be suspended by the league for breaking their substance abuse policy. Bell is a amazing back though, coming less than 200 yards away from 2000 from the line of scrimmage in 2016, while missing 4 games, while having multiple Pittsburg Steelers team records.


Randy Moss: Arguably one of the greatest receivers to play the game, Moss was electric on the field and has career and season accomplishments to prove it, holding the record for most receiving touchdowns in a season with 23, racking up 4 first team all pro appearances, as well as being third all time in career receiving yards. But Moss' career could have stopped before it started, as he was arrested for being part of a racially charged fight while in high school, that led him to lose his scholarship from Notre Dame, then he was kicked off the FSU team when he violated his probation and was sentenced to more jail time. He was a kid, and it didn't effect his pro career, but it could have. 

Michael Irvin: Thee Superbowl rings, a Hall of Fame jacket, and as one the greatest Cowbows ever to play the game, Michael Irvin ended his career as an all-time great. But off the field he ran into a few issues, one in particular included a motel room noise complaint, that led to Irvin and a teammate arrested in a room full of cocaine weed and topless girls. Drug charges continued to happen throughout his life and career, but he was a stud on the field.

Plaxico Burrerss: Giants fans remember Plaxico as the guy who scored the game winning touchdown in the Superbowl against the 18-0... I mean 18-1 Patriots. He also helped the giants go 9-1 to start the next season. Sounds like Giants fans love him right? Not really so unconditionally anymore, because that 2008 season was slightly effected when the Giant's star receiver shot himself in the leg with a gun he wasn't supposed to have on him in the first place. So Plaxico went from a fan favorite, to the guy who shot himself with the gun in his jeans' pocket. 


Aaron Hernandez: He may not be the best TE ever, but he sure knew how to ruin defenders lives on the field, He was part of the Gronkowski- Hernandez TE pair that led the Patriots to Brady's 5th Superbowl appearance, and 2nd loss to the G-men. He also was part of many murders, and when I say many, I mean he was part of a double homicide, as well as killing his fiance's sisters' boyfriend. He is in prison for life without the possibility for parole, and he still hasn't been tried on multiple cases. Hernandez really embodies the "NFL ALL CRIMINAL TEAM" spirit. 


Nate Newton: He had a NFL salary, but couldn't resist making another 75K per drug deal. This Six-time Pro Bowler couldn't help his competitive nature, trying to be the best dope dealer in the game. He was arrested once in a van with two girls because of violating traffic, something you shouldn't do when you have over 200 pounds of weed in your van. He was a great guard though...

Bryant McKinnie: Superbowl ring, Pro Bowl selection, beat up a club's bouncer and resisted arrest. All in a days work for this tackle/guard who also once ran into trouble with teammates and others for being on a boat full of prozzies and acts that would make your grandma cry. 


David Deihl: A great Giant for 10 years, and a key player on two world champion football teams, Deihl had a career to be proud of. One of the moments he may not be so happy about is back in 2013 when he was arrest for driving while intoxicated, with a blood alcohol content of .182, which is .174 over the legal limit of .08. He was arrested for slamming his BMW
