There are plenty of guys in the NFL that are villains, but one in particular stands out among the rest.
According to a data analysis by BetOnline.AG, the player that is the most disliked is Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady.
“According to this, Tom Brady is the “most hated” NFL player in 36 states,” wrote Dan Wetzel via Twitter. “Antonio Brown (6), Aaron Rodgers (4), Baker Mayfield (2), Deshaun Watson (1) and Jameis Winston (1) are also ‘hated.’”
Behind Brady lands another Buccaneer: wide receiver Antonio Brown. Interestingly enough, six states in the New England area are the ones which hate Brown the most.
After Brady and Brown falls Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. It’s pretty surprising he’s only the third most-hated player in the NFL. How he conducted his off-season earlier this year made plenty of mostly-negative headlines. Even Packers fans have had a tough time cheering for Rodgers so far this season, given how he’s treated the organization.
Baker Mayfield, Deshaun Watson and Jameis Winston are No. 4, 5 and 6 respectively on the most-hated list. Mayfield probably has the most potential to rise depending on how the Browns finish out the season.
