Former Buffalo Bills All-Pro Steve Tasker joined CBS Sports as a game analyst for THE NFL ON CBS in 1998. He also has served as a reporter for the Network's coverage of Super Bowl XLI (2007), as well as the AFC Championship Game (2007, 2008, 2009)
Tasker, a 13-year veteran of the Bills, is one of the NFL's greatest special teams players of all-time. A seven-time selection by his peers and coaches to represent the AFC as the special teams player at the Pro Bowl (1988, 1991-96), he is the only true special teams player to be selected as the Pro Bowl MVP (1993). Tasker, a five-time All-Pro selection, was a key component of the Bills' four consecutive AFC Championship teams (1991-94). He finished his career with 51 receptions for 779 yards and nine touchdowns, an average of 21.1 yards per kickoff return and 186 special teams tackles. In August 2000, he was voted by the 36 Pro Football Hall of Fame voters to the NFL's All-Time team as its special teams player. Tasker will be honored as the 24th person enshrined on the Buffalo Bills Wall of Fame on September 9, 2007, the first home game of the season.
Tasker was drafted by the Houston Oilers in the ninth round (226th overall) of the 1985 NFL Draft. He was acquired by Buffalo from Houston in November 1986 after playing for the Oilers for parts of 1985 and 1986.
Tasker graduated from Northwestern University with a degree in communications studies. He authored Steve Tasker's Tales from the Bills Sideline in 2007. Tasker was born April 10, 1962, in Smith Center, Kan. He and his wife, Sarah, live in East Aurora, N.Y. They have five children.
