Jerheme Wayne Urban (born November 26, 1980 in Victoria, Texas) is an American football wide receiver for the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League. He was originally signed as an undrafted free agent from Trinity University by the Seattle Seahawks and served as a reserve wide receiver during his years there. His 2005 season was cut short by a re-aggravated left foot stress fracture, and he was not re-signed. He was signed by the Cowboys in 2006 and joined their practice squad, and was cut from the team's active roster before the start of the 2007 season. The Arizona Cardinals signed him to their active roster from the waiver wire on September 2, 2007. He caught a then career-high 22 passes in 2007, including two touchdowns. 2008 saw Urban set new career marks with 34 catches for 448 yards and four touchdowns. He also contributed 11 tackles on special teams and completed his first pass in the NFL. He was then signed from free agency to the Chiefs roster on March 11, 2010.

Urban is considered by many to be the ultimate team player. Seattle Post-Intelligencer sportswriter tenure with the Seahawks that he "...wasn't a good soldier, he was a great one." Quarterback Urban, "Whatever the definition of a Seahawk is, he's it." ESPN's Urban that "This is an under-the-radar player who always seems to make coaches fall in love with him." He is also admired for the way he plays the wide receiver position; and the way he plays the wide receiver position is with a combination of speed (4.36 in the 40) toughness, and refusing to go down.
