Dana Stubblefield Wiki – Biography
Dana Stubblefield is a former professional American football defensive tackle and convicted rapist who played in the National Football League (NFL). After graduating from Taylor High School in North Bend, Ohio, Stubblefield attended the University of Kansas.
Stubblefield was drafted in the first round (26th overall) of the 1993 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers who went to a 4-3 defense at the start of the season. 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 less successful for Stubblefield, but his 1997 season found him recording 15 sacks and being named 1997’s NFL Defensive Player of the Year by the Associated Press.
After the 1997 season, he became an unrestricted free agent and signed with the Washington Redskins, where his numbers greatly diminished despite the fact that he played opposite Dan Wilkinson, who often drew double-teams. 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 New England Patriots, but he was injured and was released before the start of the season.
