Dana William Stubblefield (born November 14, 1970 in Cleves, Ohio) is a former American football defensive tackle in the National Football League. 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. 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. He 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 DT 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 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 released before the start of the season.
