Frank William Warren (September 14, 1959 – December 12, 2002) was a professional American football player for the New Orleans Saints of the National Football League. The defensive lineman was a third-round draft pick in the 1981 NFL Draft by the Saints out of Auburn University. He went on to play 189 games during his 14-year career with New Orleans, recording 52½ sacks. His impressive career earned him an induction into the New Orleans Saints Hall of Fame.

Warren died at the age of 43 after suffering a heart attack at his home in Birmingham, Alabama. By tragic coincidence, he had only five days earlier appeared on the HBO television program Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel to discuss the dangers of rising obesity among NFL linemen, many of whom now top 300 lb (140 kg). Warren stated that his weight scared him and left him wondering every night if he'd wake up to see the next morning.
