Simone Biles Comments After Husband Jonathan Owens Leaves Packers for Rival Bears

Green Bay Packers safety Jonathan Owens is reportedly packing his bags for Chicago. 

His wife, decorated Olympic gymnast Simone Biles, appears to be thrilled about it.

Shortly after NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported the Bears agreed to sign Owens to two-year contract on Tuesday in free agency, Biles weighed in on social media to thank Packers fans and send a message to the Windy City.

But there’s more. Biles is also excited for Owens to join the Bears for one reason in particular—shorter travel time.

Biles and Owens got married in Houston last April and built a new home together in Texas.

Owens spent the 2023 campaign in Green Bay after playing his first four seasons with the Houston Texans. In 17 games last year, Owens made 11 starts and logged 84 tackles, three passes defensed and one fumble recovery for a touchdown. 

Owens will join the Bears’ secondary that features star cornerback Jaylon Johnson, who signed a four-year contract extension last week.

The Bears finished fourth in the NFC North last season, behind the Detroit Lions (12–5), Packers (9–8) and Minnesota Vikings (7–10).
