NFL 5 43 NFL's top 10 divas 30047842 Top NFL divas Top+NFL+divas NFL

Whether it’s the fame or money, these guys seemingly always need to be in the spotlight.

NFL 5 43 NFL's top 10 divas 30051854 Chad Johnson/Ochocinco Chad+Johnson%2FOchocinco NFL

Your first clue: The guy legally changed his name to "Ochocinco" to match his uniform No. 85 (we'll ignore his incorrect Spanish). Though his TD celebration hijinks initially were a blast, "8-5" became a distraction in Cincy (no, really) and Johnson was then dealt to the New England Patriots, a club that everyone thought wouldn't stand for his wild jokes. Turns out, Chad's continued Twitter nonsense and his deficiency in learning the playbook wore thin (what a shock!). The Patriots released him in June 2012. Miami picked him up, but quickly cut bait after his domestic assault charge in August.

NFL 5 43 NFL's top 10 divas 30047837 DeSean Jackson DeSean+Jackson NFL

What do you expect from one of the most explosive players in the league? Jackson dazzles on the field, but sometimes his antics away from the game are questionable. Jackson's not afraid to say how great he is. His attempts at stealing the spotlight during postgame interviews are baffling.

NFL 5 43 NFL's top 10 divas 9668122 Terrell Owens Terrell+Owens NFL

None of the controversies Owens has faced is his fault — according to Owens. Obviously, the folks in San Francisco, Philly, Dallas, Buffalo, Cincinnati and even Allen, Texas have failed to grasp how T.O. simply speaks the truth and is not at all a locker room problem. And yet, the WR has left behind a trail of battered QBs, from Jeff Garcia in San Fran (T.O. ripped his arm and masculinity) to Donovan McNabb in Philly (remember, it wasn't T.O. who got tired in the Super Bowl) and Tony Romo in Dallas (don't forget the locker-room spat regarding the number of passes directed at Romo's road roomie, Jason Witten). Like a true diva, Owens likes the spotlight focused solely on him.

Bryant has struggled with off-the-field trouble and won't shy away from lashing out at his critics. Bryant, brimming with elite talent, has every opportunity to be the 'next big thing' in Dallas. And he won't let you forget it.

NFL 5 43 NFL's top 10 divas 30051855 Vince Young Vince+Young NFL

You have to give it to Young for his ambitious diva chart climb, achieved through past tantrums and trade ultimatums. After being traded to Philly, an offhand quote by Young immediately put pressure on his new team and started the "Dream Team" controversy. You probably shouldn't count on Young being the most down to earth member of the team — but what diva ever is? After being cut loose by Buffalo, his act may be over.

NFL 5 43 NFL's top 10 divas 30051852 Albert Haynesworth Albert+Haynesworth NFL

Congrats to Haynesworth, now a free agent, for whining his way near the top of the list. The 350-pound DT earned notoriety in his Titans days, first kicking a teammate in 2003, then being suspended after stepping on the head of an opponent in 2007. Lack of effort was an issue, too, until he dominated in (lo and behold) his contract year in 2008, winning Defensive Player of the Year honors. But by complaining after signing a $100 million deal with Washington, including a $21 million bonus — then NOT showing up for minicamp because the team won't play your favorite scheme? That's top "dog" worthy.

NFL 5 43 NFL's top 10 divas 30051856 Michael Crabtree Michael+Crabtree NFL

After dominating the collegiate game at Texas Tech, the 49ers spent a first-round pick on Crabtree. During a lengthy rookie holdout, he threatened to not play his rookie season if he wasn't given the contract he commanded. Although he has natural ability to succeed in the NFL, many critics have questioned his professionalism. It has been noted that Crabtree is commonly late for meetings, rubs teammates the wrong way and nurses minor injuries.

NFL 5 43 NFL's top 10 divas 9668116 Brandon Marshall Brandon+Marshall NFL

Marshall has all-world talent, but has been an all-pro headache. First, there was his shady broken arm in Denver (which he initially attributed to putting his arm through a TV set while horsing around). Then, there was the string of concerning off-field allegations involving significant others. Suspended once for his behavior, he still denied any incidents took place off the field, despite mounting evidence. Marshall finally admitted he had a personality disorder. He's since bounced from Miami to Chicago for a dive reunion with ex-teammate Jay Cutler. Let's see what happens.

NFL 5 43 NFL's top 10 divas 9668114 Jay Cutler Jay+Cutler NFL

While in Denver, Jay Cutler ignited a feud with former head coach Josh McDaniels, ignored long-time owner Pat Bowlen and pouted his way out of town. Instead of heaven, the fickle QB found himself in purgatory, rebuilding the Bears offense. But Jay does what Jay wants, and Cutler caused a media storm by leaving the 2010 NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers to sit on the sidelines after an injury. His latest? Blaming his line for throwing four picks and losing to the Pack again.

NFL 5 43 NFL's top 10 divas 9668814 Cedric Benson Cedric+Benson NFL

Cedric Benson has been known to test the patience of organizations . . . and teammates. While with with the Bears, he ruffled teammates' feathers with a long rookie holdout; then upon returning, acted as if the starting RB job was a birthright. It got so bad that FOXSports.com's Jay Glazer once reported that Benson's own teammates tried to hurt him in practices. Chicago finally cut him in retaliation for a pair of alcohol-related incidents, both within weeks of each other during the summer of '08. He was a better citizen with the Bengals, though he did serve jail time for two assault charges. Will he behave in Green Bay?
