Julian Edelman, Isaiah Thomas Appear in ESPN Body Issue

Star Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas and Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman are baring all.

Both New England athletes are appearing in this year's body issue of ESPN The Magazine.

The annual issue features athletes in the nude. According to ESPN, its mission is "to celebrate and showcase the athletic form through powerful images and interviews."

Olympian gymnast Aly Raisman, a native of Needham, Massachusetts, appeared in the magazine in 2015. Last year, former Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork was featured.

The 2017 issue will be released on July 7, two days after photos, personal interviews and videos debut on ESPN.com.
