Behind-the-scenes of Marshawn Lynch's nude photoshoot with ESPN

It's old news by now that Seahawk Marshawn Lynch will be appearing in ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue 2014. While the issue doesn't come out for a couple more days, ESPN just posted a behind-the-scenes video (and some juicy pictures) to their site.

The photos and video are accompanied by a brief Q&A with Lynch, who is usually known for his media silence. By far one of the greatest quotes of the interview:

"Michael Phelps wouldn't have been on the Wheaties box if I stuck with swimming. I am Olympic caliber right now."

Oh believe me Marshawn. We don't doubt it.
