Seattle Seahawks' running back Marshawn Lynch is one of 22 athletes that posed in the nude for the magazine's sixth annual "The Body" issue that newsstands July 11.

"We somehow manage to raise the bar each year," said ESPN The Magazine and editor in chief Chad Millman. "This year's collection of exceptional athletes and stunning photography showcases an array of sports and body types. It inhabits our mission to pay tribute to these athletes' bodies and all they are capable of."


Lynch joins other Washington State athletes Hope Solo and Apolo Anton Ono in having posed in the buff for the magazine.
