Ordell Wayne Braase (born March 13, 1932, in Mitchell, South Dakota) is a retired American football defensive end in the National Football League. He played with the Baltimore Colts throughout his career. During his football career in Baltimore, Braase performed in commercials for Dixie Cola, even singing their jingle.

Following his retirement as an active player, Braase was a restaurant owner in Timonium, Maryland, and in the 1970s was an executive with a Baltimore truck body manufacturer. He also teamed with play-by-play announcer Chuck Thompson to provide color commentary for radio broadcasts of Colts games. In the 1990s, he co-hosted a popular program, Braase, Donovan, Davis and Fans on WJZ-TV in Baltimore with fellow Colt teammate Art Donovan. The trio talked more about Art Donovan's fabled stories than contemporary NFL football, but the show held high ratings in its time period.

Braase continues to make his home in the Baltimore area.
