Former Super Bowl-winning quarterback Trent Dilfer is an analyst for a variety of ESPN programs including NFL Live, NFL PrimeTime and SportsCenter (Sunday and Monday nights during the NFL season). He also contributes to Monday Night Countdown, ESPN Radio programs, and ESPN’s annual Super Bowl week and NFL Draft coverage.
The 14-year NFL veteran joined ESPN in July 2008, the same day he announced his retirement from the National Football League. Dilfer played for five teams during his career, including the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1994-99), Baltimore Ravens (2000), Seattle Seahawks (2001-04), Cleveland Browns (2005) and San Francisco 49ers (2006-2007). Dilfer led the Ravens to a 34-7 victory over the Giants in Super Bowl XXXV. He threw for 21 touchdowns with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in both the 1997 and 1998 NFL seasons. The 1997 Pro Bowl selection finished his career with 20, 518 passing yards.
Dilfer was the sixth overall pick by the Buccaneers in the 1994 NFL Draft out of Fresno State University. In 1993 he led the nation in passing efficiency and set the NCAA record for consecutive pass attempts without an interception (271) that would stand until 2007.
Before joining ESPN, Dilfer served as a guest analyst on the NFL Network from 2006-08.
In 2009, Dilfer was presented with the “Brodie Award,” recognizing an individual’s accomplishments in both a chosen profession and in golf, presented annually by the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament. The award is named for former NFL MVP John Brodie, the one-time 49ers quarterback and Senior PGA Tour player, whose jersey number Dilfer wore during the final two seasons of his career with the 49ers.
Widely recognized for his charitable contributions, Dilfer and his wife, Cassandra, established the TD4HIM Foundation in memory of their son Trevin who passed away in 2003 at the age of five from myocarditis.
