Which Philadelphia Eagles player is the dirtiest?

John Geliebter-USA TODAY Sports

Does Eagles cornerback Cary Williams deserve to be on the naughty list?

In light of the Luis Suarez biting incident at the 2014 World Cup on Tuesday, I thought it would be interesting to identify some of the dirtiest players in the NFL. In the interest of an Eagles perspective, we'll start off with a player from Philadelphia.

Eagles

The name that stands out to me most here is starting cornerback Cary Williams. He doesn't necessarily bend the rules... but let's just say he enjoys his fair share of extracurricular activity and is not afraid to get physical. There was that time in 2012 when he was still with the Ravens and he shoved DeSean Jackson. Then he shoved a referee in Super Bowl 47 and miraculously avoided an ejection. During training camp last year, Williams got into a tussle with a Patriots WR and was dismissed from practice. A few weeks later he got into a tussle with former Carolina Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith... in a preseason game. Williams even got into a little fight with his own teammate, WR Riley Cooper, during practice early on in the season. I think it's safe to say Williams is the easy choice here. I couldn't imagine he'd go as far to bite someone, though.

Rest of NFL

I can't think of many dirty players in the NFC East off the top of my head. Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather is probably up there with his knack for illegal hits. DeAngelo Hall? DeMarco Murray? How about the rest of the NFL? Richie Incognito seems like an obvious target. Ndamukong Suh always seems to be in trouble. Dashon Goldson is one for landing bit hits and getting fined.

Let's hear your ideas on the dirtiest players in the NFL. Current or historical.
