Anthony Cline (born July 25, 1948 in Hammond, Indiana) was an American football defensive end in the NFL for two different teams. He played college football at the University of Miami. His son Tony Cline Jr. also played in the NFL.

Some researchers claim that he holds the AFC rookie sack record with 17½ in 1970, but as the NFL has only recognized the sack as an official statistic since 1982 and as a result his record is unofficial.
