"We are reaching out to him with an offer," Daniel Nardicio, a spokesperson for Playgirl, said about a possible deal with Lochte.

"Now that he's out of his Speedo sponsorship deal, Playgirl.com wants to get Ryan Lochte out of his Speedos," he continued. "We're fully prepared to handle this 'brah' (as Ryan would say), and take his studliness to new heights, in a huge offer to show American men and women what Ryan Lochte really would do—naked."

Nardicio also explained that Lochte embodies certain characteristics that are in line with the Playgirl brand.

"Sexiness, athleticism and he's totally masculine," he said. "What he did in Rio was stupid, so we'd even offer to donate his fee to a Brazilian charity of his choice!"

ET has reached out to Lochte's team for comment. On Tuesday, the Olympic athlete appeared on Good Morning America in an effort to put his headline-making incident in Rio behind him.

"You know, I think that it was still hours after the incident and I’m not one to make excuses, but I was still intoxicated, was going through the motions of having a gun pulled on me," Lochte answered when asked why he lied about being robbed in Rio. "I’m human. I made a mistake and that's something I'm going to have to live with."

Lochte will be back in the public eye when he competes in season 23 of Dancing With the Stars.
