Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson was named one of Men's Fitness "25 Fittest Guys in the World" in a recently released list. First spotted it thank to Bruce Feldman on Twitter, and Paul Kuharsky of the ESPN.com AFC South Blog subsequently linked to the list and pointed out that Johnson is the only NFL player on it.
"There are very few athletes his size [222 pounds with 4% body fat] with that type of body control, balance, and speed," former Texans strength and conditioning coach Ray Wright says in the MF write-up. "He's the total package—a rare player."
Here's the list. It also includes college football's Mark Ingram, basketball's Kobe Bryant, soccer's Cristiano Ronaldo, hockey's Alexander Ovechkin and former NFL running back Herschel Walker. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, age 51, also made the cut.
