ESPN Magazine reveals almost all of Seahawks' Marshawn Lynch

We finally get to take a peek at what Marshawn Lynch has been hiding underneath his Seahawks uniform.

ESPN The Magazine announced two weeks ago who would be featured in its annual "Body Issue," and the list included Super Bowl-winning running back Lynch.

On Tuesday, three days before the issue is slated to hit newsstands, the magazine offered a preview of the nude athletes to grace its pages.

Readers might find it's not only Lynch's physique that's memorable. In his interview, Lynch said something that could leave the U.S.'s top swimmer quaking in his swim trunks:

"Michael Phelps wouldn't have been on the Wheaties box if I stuck with swimming," Lynch told ESPN. "I've been swimming since I was a little kid. I still swim. I'm the best. I am Olympic caliber right now, hell yeah."

It appears Lynch will be on an alternative cover of the issue, which will hit newsstands Friday.
