Mawae and Haynesworth voted among NFL's dirtiest players

Tuesday, November 3, 2009 at 4:33pm

Titans center Kevin Mawae finished fifth and former Tennessee defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth was tied for second among a players survey asking who the NFL’s dirtiest player was.

Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Hines Ward, who broke Cincinnati linebacker Keith Rivers’ jaw with a blindside hit last year, was the “winner” in the poll, receiving 11.6 percent of the votes in a poll conducted in September by Sports Illustrated.

Mawae, a 16-year veteran, received 4.6 percent of the vote, while Haynesworth, whose most notorious act came as a Titan in 2006.

That’s when Haynesworth, who tied with Miami Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter with six percent of the vote, stomped on the helmet-less head of Dallas Cowboys center Andre Gurode. He was suspended five games for that act.
