Naked pictures of the Philadelphia Eagles’ offensive line have been leaking out ever since it was announced they were appearing in the 2019 ESPN The Magazine’s Body Issue. Now the issue is live and you can view official shots and videos from the shoot that took place outside of Lincoln Financial Field back in June.
Based on the interview above, it sounds like Lane Johnson was the one who convinced Jason Kelce, Brandon Brooks, Isaac Seumalo, and Halapoulivaati Vaitai to pose for the issue. Johnson couldn’t convince 37-year-old starting left tackle Jason Peters to do it.
Whether you’re into the nudity or not, it’s cool to see the kind of bond that the Eagles’ offensive line has off the field. Chemistry and communication is obviously critical for that position. These guys seem to genuinely enjoy being around each other.
Q: What do you hope people take from your shoot?
JOHNSON: They can just laugh and see us as a bunch of goofy guys; that’s what we are. Hopefully the pictures capture what we are really about -- really authentic and genuine, nothing fake about it. What you see is what you get.
