It’s still a dog-eat-dog world for Michael Vick. Four years since his reinstatement into the NFL stemming from federal charges for financing a dog fighting operation, the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback landed at the top of Forbes 2013 list of NFL's Most-Disliked Players.

According to an E-poll Market Research survey, 53% participants of 1,100 people voted Vick (out of 10 players) as their least favorite active player based on his “appeal, likeability” among other attributes.

The 33-year-old’s ranking may come as a surprise to some, considering his image/career overhaul since returning from a 18 month prison-stint, which has afforded the Pro Bowler with various endorsements and settling his $20 million bankruptcy debt. Other notable players that made the list included San Diego Chargers linebacker, Manti Te’o, and Detroit Lions running back, Reggie Bush.
