INDIANAPOLIS – Let the locker room ribbing commence.
The pictures of Anthony Castonzo, Todd Herremans and Jack Mewhort appearing in the “Body Issue” of ESPN The Magazine debuted online on Monday.
Fans can pick up a copy of the issue when it hits newsstands on Friday.
For now though, here's a look at three pictures of the Colts players and what the players had to say to ESPN during the shoot:
"It's cool to see three generations of linemen in the NFL…I'm one year in, Anthony is four years in and Todd is 10 years in. So I'm trying to find out what their routines are and what they do to maintain their bodies."
"I think the view of offensive linemen from the public is that we're all just fat sobs. But the game has evolved into more fit, athletic offensive linemen. I would say that Anthony is probably the leanest of all of us and I'm probably the chubbiest. Jack is somewhere in the middle."
"Yeah. I'm a naturally pretty skinny guy. I've got to plan on eating all day to maintain my weight. I eat a lot."
Castonzo, perhaps the comedian of the group, offered this line at the end of the photo shoot: "Wouldn't it be funny if we recreated that famous Burt Reynolds photo?"
