Newton was voted the biggest trash-talker among quarterbacks in a player survey issued by ESPN's NFL Nation. The 2015 MVP received 26 percent of the vote, Philip Rivers finished second at 24 percent, and Aaron Rodgers ranked third at 17 percent.
The poll wasn't kind to others. Eli Manning was chosen as the NFL's most overrated signal-caller, garnering 14 percent of the votes, while Andrew Luck (11 percent) and Joe Flacco (10 percent) finished second and third, respectively.
Jay Cutler may have gotten the worst of it, ranking as the least desirable quarterback teammate. Cutler received 42 percent of the vote, while Newton and Rivers followed at 6 percent each.
NFL players might have forecast Deshaun Watson's breakout. The Texans standout was voted as the rookie pass-thrower who will have the most success in the NFL, earning 61 percent of the vote. Mitch Trubisky finished second at 18 percent.
