ESPN The Magazine released its list of sports stars who will bare it all in the upcoming “Body Issue” and we’ll be seeing a lot more of one Seahawk.

The sixth annual edition of “The Body Issue” is slated to feature 22 athletes posing nude, including Marshawn Lynch.

Lynch has drawn a lot of attention by attempting to stay out of the limelight, only making appearances at Super Bowl media events after he was threatened with fines if he failed to appear and do interviews.

“He won’t have to talk, he’ll just have to take off his clothes,” points out 710 ESPN Seattle’s Danny O’Neil.

Brock Huard guessed that “The Body Issue”, while revealing, might be more appealing to the oft-quiet Lynch because he’s choosing to do the magazine on his own terms – not the NFL’s.

“The ESPN ‘Body Issue’ is sort of strange, to see these athletes pose nude,” O’Neil says. “But it is really a celebration of the human body in all these forms. I don’t think it’s exploitative.”

The issue hits newsstands July 11.
