Larry Brown, Jr. (born November 30, 1969 in Miami, Florida) is a former American football cornerback in the NFL for the Dallas Cowboys and the Oakland Raiders. He is most known for being named the MVP of Super Bowl XXX. He was the first cornerback to win the award and the first defensive back since 1973. In that game, Brown's two interceptions of Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Neil O'Donnell helped lift the Cowboys to their third championship in four seasons. The award and acclaim he received was especially poignant considering the tragic death of his young son earlier in the season [cite web |url= |title=Dallas cornerback has bounced back from family tragedy |accessdate=2008-06-25 |author=Paul Domowitch |date=1996-01-25 | |publisher=Knight Ridder/Tribune News Service] . Brown was a starting cornerback on all three championship teams.

Brown became a free agent immediately after his MVP performance and used his award as leverage to gain a lucrative contract with the Oakland Raiders. After playing just 12 games in two years for the Raiders, he returned to Dallas for the 1998 season, which would be the last year of his playing career. He retired with 14 career interceptions, which he returned for a total of 210 yards and 2 touchdowns. He also recorded 2 fumble recoveries.

Currently, Brown is a cohost of "Countdown to Kickoff" on Sports Radio 1310 The Ticket, the flagship station of the Dallas Cowboys Radio Network.

He has also played himself in an episode of "Married… with Children" [cite web |url= |title=Larry Brown |accessdate=2008-06-25 | |date= ] .
