All 325 lbs of Vince Wilfork.

Ten men and nine women will be featured in ESPN The Magazine's eigth annual "Body Issue", including Dwyane Wade, Conor McGregor, Super Bowl MVP Von Miller and all 325 lbs of Vince Wilfork.

D-Wade spoke about what it means to appear in the Body Issue, after growing up as a kid who was afraid to swim without his shirt on.

"It was uncharted water for me," the 13-year NBA veteran said. "It was one of those moments where it's good to overcome a fear of something.

"It's bigger than me showing my body off. That's not as important to me as telling a story of overcoming a fear. It hopefully gives someone confidence to really be their authentic self."

ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue will also be featuring Team USA duathlete Chris Mosier, who will be the first transgender athlete to pose.

Other notables that will be appearing in The Body Issue are WNBA's Elena Delle Donne, Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta, Steelers WR Antonio Brown, US Women's soccer star Christen Press and Olympic beach volleyball player April Ross.

The Body Issue will be available online on July 6th, the hardcopy will hit newsstands on July 8th.
