Damien Robinson (born December 22, 1973 in Dallas, Texas, United States) is a former safety of the NFL. He played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New York Jets, and Seattle Seahawks. He attended college at the University of Iowa.

Robinson is best known for the November 4, 2001 event at the Louisiana Superdome. His Jets were leading the New Orleans Saints, 16-9, late in the ball game. After a routine offensive play, Robinson inexplicably grabbed the facemask of Saints quarterback Aaron Brooks and continually pulled at the mask, bending Brooks backwards. Saints offensive lineman Kyle Turley was furious, and procecced to grab Robinson's hand's and forced him to let go of Brooks, before picking him up by the facemask and tackleing him to the ground as referees and players from both teams tried to separate them. Turley emerged from the ensuing scrum with Robinson's helmet and proceeded to fling it across the field before giving an obscene gesture. Robinson later was fined $20,000 by the NFL for his actions.
