Beast Mode going buff for The Body Issue

By Terry Blount

Beast Mode in the nude is coming to a magazine stand near you soon.

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is one of the athletes features in ESPN the Magazine’s annual The Body Issue, which hits newsstands on July 11. The issue celebrates the athlete form.

Lynch is one of two NFL players in this year’s issue, along with Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald, so the NFC West is well represented.

Lynch appears briefly (no pun intended) in a video preview of the issue. He is carrying a football in a crouched running position, and then laughs and points at one of the photographers.
