Larry Brown (born June 16, 1949) is a former American football player who played tight end and offensive tackle with the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League. He played college football at the University of Kansas, where he played on the 1968 Orange Bowl squad and was a teammate of future Pro Football Hall of Fame running back John Riggins and pro quarterback Bobby Douglass.

Brown played as a tight end from 1971–1976, and as a tackle from 1977-1984. During that time, he was one of 22 players to play in all of the first four of the Steelers Super Bowl victories (Super Bowl IX, Super Bowl X, Super Bowl XIII, and Super Bowl XIV).
