Today, ESPN announced the ten male and nine female athletes that will participate their annual, ESPN 2016 Body Issue.
The series of Body Issues will include three NFL players, one of which is Houston Texans defensive tackle Vince Wilfork, number 75.
Wilfork is a five-time pro bowler and is known for his sense of humor and his country boy look when he freely wears his overalls shirtless, a cowboy hat and cowboy boots.

In an ESPN press release, Wilfork said, “I know I don’t have the six-packs and the eight-packs and all that… but I’m perfectly fine with what I am. If people can look at me, look at a guy that’s 325-plus [pounds] doing an issue like this, I’m pretty sure that they might have a little confidence after seeing that it’s OK to be who you are. “
