Dana Stubblefield

Dana William Stubblefield (born Nov. 14, 1970 in Cleves, Ohio) is a former American NFL defensive tackle. He grew up in Cleves, Ohio and attended the University of Kansas, where he was a second-team All-American.


National Football League career
Stubblefield was drafted in the 1st round of the 1993 draft, 26th overall, by the San Francisco 49ers. In his rookie year, Stubblefield led the 49ers with 10.5 sacks (Making himself The NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year), and recorded 8.5 the following year. He appeared in the Pro Bowl in 1994 and 1995. The 1996 season was, by all counts a failure for Stubblefield, but his 1997 season found him recording 15 sacks. Stubblefield was rewarded for his efforts by being named 1997's NFL Defensive Player of the Year by the Associated Press. A feat many believed belonged to Bryant Young the DE who had been double teamed all season long.

After the 1997 season, he was granted unconditional free agency and signed with the Washington Redskins where his numbers greatly diminished without Bryant Young playing beside him. He returned to San Francisco in 2001 and 2002, and played with the Oakland Raiders as a free agent in 2003. In 2004 he was signed by the Patriots, who recognized that although Stubblefield's abilities are slightly diminished with age, he is still a formidable defensive presence.
