The New Orleans Saints and Denver Broncos players will appear alongside a number of former and current NFL stars on the October 4 episode of the NBC reality show.

The athletes will participate in different aspects of the show -- some will be in a throwing contest with the contestants, a few will share personal stories about overcoming adversity and others will help the show's participants with the Last Chance Workout.

Regarding the football-centric episode, The Biggest Loser executive producer Todd Lubin says:

    “It’s not just some great athlete coming out and saying ‘Hey, look at me!’ We actually get to their stories -- and these NFL guys have unbelievable stories. Drew had a major debilitating injury, came back and won a Super Bowl, so his message was, ‘Whatever the adversity is, you’ve got to fight through it.’”
