Less Browne (born December 7, 1959 in East Liverpool, Ohio) was a United States Football League and Canadian Football League defensive back for the Pittsburgh Maulers (USFL) Hamilton Tigercats, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, the Ottawa Rough Riders and the BC Lions.

He was a six-time CFL All-Star, and was twice nominated for Schenley Most Outstanding Defensive Player award. He was inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame in 2002 and in November, 2006 was voted one of the CFL's Top 50 players (#23) of the league's modern era by Canadian sports network The Sports Network/TSN.
