Trent Dilfer  

Retired NFL Quarterback & Former Football Analyst for ESPN

Trent Dilfer is a former American football quarterback who played 13 seasons in the National Football League. He is also a former NFL analyst for ESPN.

Dilfer is best known as the starting quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens during their Super Bowl-winning season in 2000. After six seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who drafted him sixth overall in the 1994 NFL Draft, Dilfer signed with the Ravens as a backup and became the team's starter midway through the year. Starting in the rest of the team's games, his time with the Ravens concluded with the franchise's first Super Bowl victory. Despite the championship achievement, Dilfer was not re-signed by the Ravens, becoming the first starting quarterback to be released after a Super Bowl win.

Following his year with the Ravens, Dilfer spent four seasons with the Seattle Seahawks, primarily as a backup, and played with the Cleveland Browns and the San Francisco 49ers for one season each before retiring in 2008. Shortly after announcing his retirement, Dilfer was hired by ESPN as an NFL analyst and held the position until ESPN's April 2017 round of layoffs.
