Kirk Cousins Tweets Huge Appreciation for Teammate’s Heroic Act
An incredible story emerged this week as it was revealed that Minnesota Vikings wide receiver K.J. Osborn helped save a man's life over the weekend.
Osborn reportedly helped rescue a man from a burning car and carried him to safety on Sunday night in an incredible act of heroism. It's perhaps even more telling, however, that Osborn's teammate Kirk Cousins didn't sound too surprised by the news.

According to Cousins, saving a man's life was "totally on-brand" for Osborn, whom he called "a tremendous person and teammate."
It's not surprising to hear that the 25-year-old wideout is a terrific teammate given his willingness to assist others, even when it means putting himself in harm's way. His courageous act speaks volumes about his character and bravery. If he's willing to risk his own safety for a complete stranger, one can only imagine what he'd do for friends and family.
Osborn's act is a great reminder of the kindness and positive impact that professional athletes can have off the field. While many donate their time and money to serve their communities, sometimes their physical strength comes in handy, too.
