Houston Texans safety Jonathan Owens has recently made headlines for getting engaged to gymnastic legend Simone Biles (he plays for the Texans, he isn’t really going to make news for some football related stuff). Simone Biles is a legend in the world of gymnastics and is one of the most revered names in Olympics history. But Jonathan Owens isn’t so well known and in this post, we will change that by discussing a little bit about him, his career, his net worth and things other than his status as the fiancee of Simone Biles. Let’s get started.

How much did Jonathan Owens spend on Simone Biles’ ring?
