Kareem Michael McKenzie (born May 24, 1979 in Trenton, New Jersey) is an American football offensive tackle for the New York Giants of the National Football League.

McKenzie played only two years of high school football at Willingboro High School in Willingboro Township, New Jersey.[1]

McKenzie played college football at Penn State University, was drafted in the third round (79th overall) of the 2001 NFL Draft by the New York Jets, and established himself as a premier run blocker over his first four seasons as a professional. McKenzie anchored the right tackle position and helped Curtis Martin achieve three straight 1,000 yard rushing seasons from 2002–2004, including a NFL best 1,697 yards in 2004. Before the 2005 season, McKenzie joined the New York Giants as a free agent. He suffered a hamstring injury in week 13 of the 2005 season against the Giants' arch-rival Dallas Cowboys. McKenzie made an immediate impact as right tackle for the Giants in the 2005 season, paving the way for Tiki Barber in rushing for a franchise-record of 1,860 yards.

McKenzie wears a Schutt DNA football helmet.
