Bradley James Orr (born 1 November 1982 in Liverpool, Merseyside) is an English defender currently playing for Queens Park Rangers. He has played for the club since July 2010, joining for an undisclosed fee from Bristol City.

Orr attended Cardinal Heenan Catholic High School which also produced players such as Colin Harvey and David Nugent. He is the Uncle of Liverpool F.C. right-back John Flanagan

Orr started his senior career with Newcastle United, and was loaned out to Burnley due to lack of opportunities in the first team side. Shortly after this loan period, he signed for Bristol City. He scored his first goal for his new team against Yeovil Town. Although he was signed as a central midfielder he was converted to right-back in 2005/2006 and has played most of his recent games in that position.

On 29 August 2006 Orr was sent off for attempting to head-butt his own teammate, Louis Carey, during a game against Northampton Town. On 1 September 2006 Orr was sentenced to 28 days in jail relating to an incident outside the popular Bristol nightclub 'Romeo Browns' the previous October. Also jailed in relation to the same incident were fellow teammates Steve Brooker for 28 days, and David Partridge for 2 months. Orr and Brooker were released on September 14, 2006, serving only half of their original sentence. He scored against Manchester City in the Carling Cup second round.

He was named in the PFA's Championship team of the season 2007/08.

According to media sources, he broke his cheekbone in the play-off final against Hull City.

On November 27, 2008, Bristol City decided to place Orr on the transfer list, due to rejecting several contract offers. On January 1, 2009, Bristol City announced that Orr had signed a two-and-a-half-year contract at the club. Later, he decided to join Queens Park Rangers on 26 July 2010. He scored his first goal for the club in a 2 0 win over Scunthorpe United on 21 August 2010.
