Christopher William Gray (born June 19, 1970 in Birmingham, Alabama) is a former American football guard of the National Football League. He was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the fifth round of the 1993 NFL Draft. He played college football at Auburn.

Gray played four seasons with the Dolphins until 1996, one season for the Chicago Bears in 1997 and finally over a decade with the Seattle Seahawks. He retired from the Seahawks prior to the 2008 season because he was "at risk for paralysis because of a lower back and spine injury...."

Chris Gray holds the Seahawks franchise record for consecutive starts with 121 and is 9th for total games with 145.

Although he never made it into the Pro Bowl, he was an integral part of the offensive line that blocked for Matt Hasselbeck and Shaun Alexander during their five consecutive playoff appearances (2003–2007), including Alexander's MVP year in 2005. He was also on the 1999 AFC West Champion Seahawks. During his career with the Seahawks, he played every position on the their offensive line.
