Steelers James Harrison, Ryan Mundy among NFL's dirtiest players, poll says

The Steelers James Harrison and Ryan Mundy were voted by their peers as two of the dirtiest players in the league

The Sporting News' released a poll voted on by current players on who they believe is the dirtiest player in the NFL. 103 players from 27 different teams participated in the vote, and two current Pittsburgh Steelers, James Harrison and Ryan Mundy, received votes.

Harrison has yet to be penalized this season and has only been penalized once since being suspended last year for a hit on Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy. The linebacker, however, has a reputation for delivering illegal hits, and has been fined $125,000 by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell since 2010.

Harrison only received the fourth-most votes, with Cortland Finnegan, Richie Incognito and Ndamukong Suh all collecting more votes than the Steelers linebacker. The full list of players who received votes is below:

Lions DT Ndamukong Suh - 32

Dolphins G Richie Incognito - 19

Rams CB Cortland Finnegan - 14

Steelers LB James Harrison - 6

Titans OT David Stewart - 3

Eagles DE Jason Babin - 2

Steelers S Ryan Mundy - 2
