Mookie Betts, Star Receiver? MVP Flashes Slick Moves on Football Field

Breaking news: Mookie Betts is a phenomenal athlete.

You already knew this about the Boston Red Sox outfielder and reigning American League MVP. But Betts provided further evidence in his latest Instagram post.

Here's the 26-year-old trying his hand at wide receiver during a recent workout -- and completely breaking his defender's ankles on a post-corner route.

Wonder if Bill Belichick has watched this tape yet? (We'll give Betts a pass on his shaky cornerback play in the final video of his post.)

Betts also is a professional-caliber bowler, so we'll just assume he's awesome at everything he does until proven otherwise.

Betts and the Red Sox officially get back to work Wednesday in the first workout of 2019 spring training in Fort Myers, Fla.
