CAMDEN, N.J. — LaDainian Tomlinson, Matt Hasselbeck, Vince Young, Larry Johnson, Jonathan Vilma, DeMarcus Ware, Devin Hester and Todd Heap are the latest "Mama's Boys."

The eight will be the largest group of NFL players to promote Campbell's Chunky soup, which is in its 10th season of featuring the league's players.

"With our biggest roster of NFL players and more team sponsorships than ever before, we anticipate an exciting year with the NFL," said Doug Johns, senior brand manager for Campbell's Chunky soup.

NFL stars to appear in previous ad campaigns for the soup include Reggie White, John Elway, Terrell Davis, Jerome Bettis, Donovan McNabb and Brian Urlacher.

All eight athletes and a combination of their moms will be featured in television and print ads set to debut when the NFL regular season opens Sept. 6.
