Terry Long (born July 21, 1959 - June 7, 2005) was a National Football League offensive lineman. He played from 1984-1991 for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

He died in 2005 from drinking antifreeze. Doctors studied his brain later and believe that brain damage from his football career contributed to his depression and later suicide.cite web |url=http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2307003 |title=Ex-Steeler Long drank antifreeze to commit suicide |publisher="ESPN.com" |date=2006-01-26 |accessdate=2007-09-05]
