Rob Gronkowski's antics may be causing consternation in Foxboro, but they're playing in Peoria.

Gronk was listed as the sixth most-liked NFL player in a survey taken by Nielsen and its partner, E-Poli Market Research, and reported by forbes.com. According to Forbes, Gronkowski, "who set single season records for touchdowns and receiving yards by a tight end last season, has over 350,000 twitter followers."

The Steelers' Troy Polamalu is listed as the most well-liked NFL player. Bad news for Tom Brady: He didn't make the Top 10, but five of his QB brethren -- Drew Brees, Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers, Robert Griffin III and Matthew Stafford -- did.

No Patriot made the list of least-liked players, which was led by the Lions' Ndamukong Suh, but Randy Moss ("With Terrell Owens no longer around, Moss takes over as the NFL's premier wide receiver diva") did check in at No. 4.
