NFL tight end (word play!) Tony Gonzalez and wife October are the latest pair to pose for PETA’s “rather go naked than wear fur” campaign. The 33-year-old made waves two years ago in the sports world after announcing that he was going vegan; something he credits for dramatically improving his health. “I’m going into my 13th year in the NFL, and I switched over [to a plant-based diet] two years ago. … [T]he day after a game, everybody’s sore … and I’m jumping rope and they’re looking at me like, ‘Man you’re supposed to be the old guy on the team. You’re acting like you’re the youngest guy on the team.'”

[Update: Thanks to YourDailyVegan.com for pointing out that Gonzalez is no longer vegan.]
