Charles Marvin Bradshaw (March 13, 1936 – January 23, 2002) was an American football offensive tackle who played eleven seasons in the National Football League, mainly for the Pittsburgh Steelers. He served for a time as the head of the NFL Players Association. Bradshaw earned a law degree during the offseason and after his career practiced law in Dallas, Texas up until the time of his death from cancer.[1]

As a Pittsburgh Steeler, Charlie Bradshaw became one of the most notorious linemen of the day, drawing such tremendous booing from the home crowd that Club Owner Art Rooney discontinued pregame introductions of players at Pitt Stadium.

He is not related to Terry Bradshaw.
