In this week’s Sports Illustrated, 239 active NFL players were asked who the most overrated player in the league is.
The Jets second-year quarterback was tied for the third most overrated player in the NFL in Sports Illustrated’s annual players’ poll. Sanchez and Redskins defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth each received five percent of the votes. In other words, 12 of 239 players polled selected Sanchez.
Bengals wide receiver Terrell Owners was voted the most overrated among players with 14 percent of the vote. His former quarterback Tony Romo received 7 percent of the vote. Former Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning was named the fifth most overrated despite passing for more than 4,000 yards last season.
