Who is the nicest player in football?
Troy Polamalu, Steelers S 8%
Drew Brees, Saints QB 6%
Peyton Manning, Colts QB 4%
Larry Fitzgerald, Cardinals WR 4%
Matt Hasselbeck, Titans QB 3%
Polamalu, the 2010 Defensive Player of the Year, is known for his devastating hits (any chance Joe Flacco voted for him?), but he has clearly made an impact with his personality as well. He, Eagles CB Nnamdi Asomugha (2%) and Broncos S Brian Dawkins (1%) are the only defensive players in the top 15. (Eight of those first 15 are QBs.) In a Facebook poll, Broncos QB Tim Tebow (39%) was the fans' pick for Mr. Nice Guy.
