Veteran QB Dilfer Ready to Call it a Career?


The career of 49’ers QB Trent Dilfer may very well be over, as word is the vet is talking openly about retiring this offseason and moving on in his life.  The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports that the team may actually try and encourage Dilfer into retiring, but that he likely won’t need that much help in making the decision.  He did play this past season when Alex Smith got hurt, and in seven games threw for 1166 yards and 7 touchdowns with 12 interceptions.  He had a QB rating of 55.1.  The former first-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 1994 will be 36 when the 08 season kicks off.  The team is expected to go with Smith and Shaun Hill, who was 2-0 this past year, as their starting and backup QB’s in 2008, leaving Dilfer as either a third-string emergency QB or out of work.
