Dana Stubblefield sentenced to jail term for stealing mail

By Cindy Boren

Dana Stubblefield, a former defensive lineman who was a huge bust with the Washington Redskins before it was fashionable, has been sentenced to 90 days in jail for stealing mail from his former girlfriend.

Stubblefield, who was sentenced Thursday in U.S. District Court in San Francisco, had admitted to turning in a change-of-address form to have his former girlfriend's mail (and her unemployment checks) delivered to him.

Last year, in connection with the Balco case, he was placed on probation after pleading guilty to lying about his steroid use as a player. Stubblefield played for the San Francisco 49ers, Oakland Raiders and Redskins from 1993-2003.

Haynesworth is too lazy to steal anything.

Awww. Maybe one day we will be reading about Ben Rothliesberger's imprisonment in your column. That would be cool.

Albert has already commited one of the biggest crime of 2000, Robbing the Washington Redskins for close to 41 million dollars with out a gun, mask, kiss or vaseline !!

Cindy - '... who was a huge bust with the Washington Redskins before it was fashionable'. Too funny.

Stubblefield and Haynesworth should get together and drive a car off a cliff, like Thelma and Louise.

I think you meant to say "90 daze". Or was it "90 dais"?

Posted by: MrBethesda | December 10, 2010 10:32 AM | Report abuse

please. Who among us hasn't changed their former GF's address in an attempt to steal her unemployment checks??

Besides, the greatest crime an NFL player ever committed was Najeh Davenport. OJ may have the most infamous, but that was too harsh. Davenport knew how to get revenge on an ex-girl

Can you say Brett Farve, I'm waiting on his punishment, I think the NFL is letting him ride out the season

He should have been locked up for stealin money from Dan Snyder. He really set the bar for getting a huge contract then taking the rest his carreer off with the Redskins.

I see nothing happening to Bret Favre. These women date these professional ball player, once they no longer playing, they no good for them. I don't feel sorry for him.

He didn't rob the Redskins. He played Snyder for the sucker that everyone knows he is.

Some of you may remember that when we signed Fat Albert I commented that I was uneasy because he bears a physical resemblance to Stubby.

Maybe Snyder will resign him for next season. He should be out in about a month with good behavior. On second thought, sign him then and he could help with the playoff run. Oh, that's right, the 'skins aren't going to the playoffs.

I blame Shanahan. It's all Shanahan's fault.

Please explain how a former pro athlete (and actor) who was making $millions$ needs an ex-girlfriend's unemployment checks to survive?

jgllo, jercha....Snyder didn't own the Redskins when Stubblefield was signed.

HAHAHAHAHAHAAA!!!! I forgot about Stubby and what a load he was too. Another bad player that was paid too much for the dynamic duo of Snyder and Cerrato

Its amazing!!! Why didn't you ignorant bigots show this must zeal after Rothliesberger raped two women and damn near killed himself on a motorcycle, and got off virtually scott free?; or after Favre fakes retirement each year to avoid training camp--and pays no price for doing so other than getting lit up on the field--and after he emailed images of his ding-a-ling to a reporter? If AH, Stubblefield, or Vick breathe too hard all of you racists jump out of the closet (though not from behind this blog) with your lame, two-cent, biased comments. DOGS!!!

This week The Post reports Wilbon gone, Haynesworth gone, now Stubblefield in trouble - Oh Mike Wise and John Feinstein, where are you when we need to be told this is RACISM at work? Both of you and the entire Post organization owe Mike Shanahan and Donovan McNabb an APOLOGY for accusing Shanahan of racism for benching McNabb for 2 minutes. Oh wait a minute, Reverse Racism means Never Having To Say You're Sorry. Just ask Al Sharpton...

Hahaha In 10 years Haynesworth will be arrested? I predict in 10 years Shanahan will run out of excuses and players to blame and finally put together a decent gameplans on a bi-weekly basis and get this team to a respectable 8 and 8. (Which for Shanahan, Junior, and Haslett ceiling in terms of wins).

@DC102008..Your posting was right on target...I'm assuming he stole the mail and checks to irritate the girl since she didn't want him...

I see AH heading the same way...with all his money he can't get a girl..probably because of his sour attitude and personality but we all know money attracts women, no matter how dull a person you are...

I have no sympathy for Stubblefield or any pro athlete who makes millions and squanders all of it and ends up in jail...a millionaire in jail...how rare....
