When ESPN announces the athletes that will be posing nude, or nearly nude, for the Body Issue, it is always an interesting group. When I saw the headlines today exclaiming Vince Wilfork will strip down to his birthday suit, I spit out my drink. This has the potential to be one of the greatest Body Issues of all time thanks to the hefty former Patriots and current Houston Texans DT.
Wilfork is officially listed at 6′2″ and 325 lbs, but there is just no way he isn’t closer to 350. That’s a lot of man meat to show off in the Body Issue and he will most certainly be the most anticipated picture(s) in the magazine. Some other notable names participating are Jake Arrieta of the Chicago Cubs, Christen Press of the USWNT, and Dwayne Wade of the Miami Heat.
