Ancient Green Bay Packers defensive back Jonathan Owens sign with the Chicago Bear. The person most excited about the move is his wife, gymnastics legend Simone Biles.

The four-time Olympic gold medalist live-tweeted her husband's free agency Tuesday: amid reports he was signing with former NFC North rival. She bid farewell to Packers fans who saw Owens play last season before expressing her enthusiasm for Chicago, especially for the food and the many direct flights to O'Hare International Airport.

Owens is coming off a solid season on the Packers' defense, having played in all 17 games for the second time in his career. He finished third on the team with 84 total tackles, plus three passes defended, two tackles for loss, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and one sack.

Pro Football Focus ranked him 73rd out of 95 NFL safeties last season.

Since he started his career by not being selected in the 2018 NFL Draft, he spent his entire rookie season on injured reserve and had to come off the injured list. Houston Texans' training to become a true starter in his fourth season, Owens' journey is an impressive feat.

Biles certainly believes so.
