Once again, Carl Edwards is taking his shirt off for ESPN. In 2006 Edwards put on a one-man gun show on the cover of ESPN The Magazine. On Oct. 9 Edwards will be one of the 30 male and female athletes displayed nude or semi-nude when ESPN The Magazine’s "Body Issue" hits newsstands. The issue, which ESPN hopes will compete with Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue, will contain two photos of Edwards. In the first photo (below) he is pictured shirtless next to an old Ford pickup (way to get the sponsor in there!) In the second photo, he appears in just his boxer-briefs (insert joke about Roush Fenway package here.)
