Terrell Keith McKeller (born July 9, 1964 in Birmingham, Alabama) is a former American football tight end for the Buffalo Bills from 1987 to 1993. McKeller's blocking and pass receiving was a big asset to the team during the early 90's, assisting them to 4 Super Bowl appearances — Super Bowl XXV, Super Bowl XXVI, Super Bowl XXVII, and Super Bowl XXVIII. His best season was in 1990, when he caught 34 passes for 464 yards and 5 touchdowns.

The Bill's K-Gun offense under Marv Levy was actually named after McKeller (not Jim Kelly, contrary to popular belief), who made it possible with his ability to block and pass catch effectively on different plays during the no huddle.

McKeller finished his 7 NFL seasons with 124 receptions for 1,464 yards and 11 touchdowns.

McKeller played only one year of college football at Jacksonville State University after playing four years of basketball. He was the power forward on the NCAA Men's Division II Basketball Championship team and led the Gulf South Conference in rebounds for three of his four seasons.

McKeller's son, Darius, is an offensive lineman at the University of South Alabama.
