Everyone loves a good list. And when the editors at Men’s Fitness unveiled their list of the 25 fittest guys in the world for 2010, it included two members with NFL ties.

One won’t surprise you. The other might (although, it seems prudent to tread lightly when presuming anything about your bosses’ workout regimen).

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson, 28, who is listed at 6-foot-3 and 225 pounds, was the only NFL player on the list.

“There are very few athletes his size [222 pounds with 4 percent body fat] with that type of body control, balance, and speed,” Ray Wright, the Texans’ former strength and conditioning coach, told the magazine. “He’s the total package—a rare player.”

The other NFL member of the fittest list is none other than NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, who among other things, climbed Mount Rainier last year and schedules more than an hour of cardio every day.

“You have to make it part of your routine,” Goodell told Men’s Fitness. “It makes me feel better, relieves stress, and helps me to be more focused.”

Here’s a look at the full list.
