Updated: Harvey will appear nude in ESPN The Magazine’s The Body Issue

Matt Harvey will be one of 21 athletes to appear nude in ESPN The Magazine’s The Body Issue.

Updated: “I take a lot of pride in taking care of my body, eating healthy and making sure I stay in the best shape I can,” Harvey said, according to the Daily News. “So when they came and asked if I’d like to be in it, when the opportunity arose, it seemed like definitely something I was interested in. Obviously the idea of catching a lot of (grief) from teammates and people like that was in the back of my mind, but it was something I felt was a good opportunity and a fun thing to do.”

Harvey will join Colin Kaepernick, John Wall, Vernon Davis and others in the issue which will be on newsstands on July 12.

Jose Reyes previously appeared in The Body Issue in 2011.
