DeAndrew Tarjo Rubin (born October 8, 1978 in St. Petersburg, Florida) is an American football wide receiver and defensive back, who is currently a free agent. Rubin attended Dixie Hollins High School in Saint Petersburg, Florida and the University of South Florida and was a starting receiver after being redshirted in 1999. After running a 4.42 in the 40 yard dash and showing off a 35½-inch vertical jump, Rubin was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the seventh round of the 2003 NFL Draft.

Rubin never has played in a regular season NFL game. Upon being released by the Packers in 2003, Rubin was signed and attended training camp with the Indianapolis Colts in 2004, but was waived before the regular season began. Rubin then went to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2005, and was signed to their practice squad. Rubin also played in NFL Europe in 2004.

Today, however, Rubin is a well used reserve in the AFL. In his rookie season with the Predators, Rubin caught 46 passes for 588 yards and ten touchdowns in 2006, while also making 17.5 tackles and one sack. In his first game with the Storm, Rubin caught 5 touchdown passes and had more than 150 receiving yards.
