Saquon Barkley Will Appear In ESPN’s ‘Body Issue’

Apparently we’ve heard enough about Saquon Barkley’s tree-trunk legs and freakish build. ESPN The Magazine is providing fans the access they’ve been waiting for.

The magazine’s 2018 edition of “The Body Issue” will include the Giants rookie.

Barkley is on the list with 15 other athletes — featuring Olympic medalists, NBA/MLB/WNBA All-Stars, and world phenoms. He’ll join another football stud in Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice and a fellow collegiate sports hero in softball’s all-time home run leader Lauren Chamberlain.

The running back isn’t the first Nittany Lion to appear in the magazine. Penn State women’s soccer All-American and World Cup champion Ali Krieger posed back in 2015.

All photos from this 10th edition will be released online June 25 and the magazine will be available June 29.
