Robert Charles McKay (born December 27, 1947) is a former National Football League offensive lineman who played from 1970 through 1978, with the Cleveland Browns and New England Patriots.

As a college player at the University of Texas, McKay earned consensus All-American honors during the 1969 season, helping Texas win the national championship.[1]

During a 1975 Browns home game against the rival Pittsburgh Steelers, "Mean Joe" Greene repeatedly kicked McKay in the groin.[2] Greene was soon wrestled to the ground and punched by center Tom DeLeone and tight end Gary Parris, allowing McKay to throw several haymakers on Greene before referees restored order.
