Vince Wilfork is ready for his close-up. And we mean close-up.

ESPN on Tuesday revealed the 19 athletes — 10 men and nine women — who will bare all in its annual “Body Issue.” Some of the bigger names on the list include Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade, Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller and U.S. women’s soccer star Christen Press. But let’s be honest: the real headliner here is the 6-foot-2, 325-pound Wilfork.

Including Wilfork in the “Body Issue” is an excellent choice; the Houston Texans defensive tackle is very comfortable in his own skin, as his outfit at a recent charity softball game can attest. In fact, Wilfork has been known to show some skin on many occasions.

The former New England Patriot may not have the chiseled physique of some of the other athletes on this list, but apparently that didn’t stop him for a second.

Here’s the full list of athletes who will appear in the Body Issue, which will hit online shelves July 6:

Nathan Adrian, Olympics/swimming
Jake Arrieta, MLB
Antonio Brown, NFL
Emma Coburn, Olympics/steeplechase
Courtney Conlogue, surfing
Elena Delle Donne, WNBA
Ryan Dungey, motocross
Adeline Gray, Olympics/wrestling
