Lindley Franklin Elliott Jr. (born November 11, 1968) is a former kicker for the Kansas City Chiefs and the Dallas Cowboys in the National Football League. He played college football for Texas Tech. He earned a Super Bowl ring playing for the Cowboys in Super Bowl XXVII

Elliott is best remembered for missing three field goal attempts from 35, 39, and 42 yards in a 10–7 playoff loss to the Indianapolis Colts in January 1996. The Chiefs had gone 13-3 in the regular season and had clinched home field advantage throughout the playoffs, making them heavy favorites. It was the last game Elliott played in his NFL career.

Lin is now an investment manager with Texas Farm Bureau in Waco, Texas.
