Lyle Martin Alzado (April 3, 1949 May 14, 1992) was a professional American football defensive lineman of the National Football League famous for his intense and intimidating style of play.

He played 15 seasons, splitting his time between the Denver Broncos, Cleveland Browns and most famously the Los Angeles Raiders, with whom he won a championship in Super Bowl XVIII. Alzado died after a battle with brain cancer in 1992 at the age of 43.
