The start of OTAs around the league has given fans a long-awaited look at key players in action once again. Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins is coming off of an impressive 2020 campaign and he'll look to build upon that play this season.

One video from the Vikings' early offseason workouts shows Cousins taking off and letting the defense know about his wheels in hilarious fashion.

The QB looks nimble in the video as he scrambles for a decent gain and yells "Oh Boy!" at the end of his run. Cousins certainly possesses some sneaky athleticism and it seems like he had to remind his defense about that ability after a long offseason.

The Vikings' signal-caller took off 32 times during the 2020 NFL season, totaling 156 yards and 1 TD. However, it was Cousins' arm that did the most of the damage last year. He racked up 4,265 yards and a career-high 35 TDs.

With rising stud Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen around him once again in 2021, Cousins should be primed for another productive year. He doesn't need to worry about the run game with Dalvin Cook in the backfield, but it's good to know Cousins can still make plays with his legs when needed.
