Houston’s Greatest of All Time can now add cereal box cover model to her already gravity-defying resume. Simone Biles will grace the cover of Wheaties boxes, the four-time Olympic gold medalist announced on social media.

Noting that she’s joining a “very unique club,” Biles told her fans in a video that she’s joining fellow sports icons Muhammad Ali and Michael Jordan on the boxes, as part of the brand’s Century Collection series.

“Growing up, I looked up to Dominique Dawes and Serena Williams,” Biles told her 6.8 million Instagram followers, citing the pioneering Olympic gymnast known as “Awesome Dawesome” and fellow Black sports superstar and tennis champion.

Wheaties, in turn, called Biles a “true champion” and “legend” and informed fans that the boxes will be available nationwide later this month.

The Spring hometown hero pointed out that Wheaties has always spotlight athletes who “go above and beyond their sports and also give back to the world.”

What will the Houston Texans do at QB this offseason? Is Texans QB Davis Mills still part of the team's plans at QB? DeMeco Ryans had some interesting comments about the Texans QB situation on The Rich Eisen Show. He mentioned the Texans already had one QB on the roster, that being Davis Mills.

When asked about the Texans plans with the No. 2 overall pick, he didn't mention a QB. He named Andre Johnson and JJ Watt as the type of players the team would love to draft. Does that mean the team isn't sold on drafting a QB early? Or is DeMeco just playing his cards close to the vest?

ESPN Houston's Jake Asman, Cody Stoots, and Brad Kellner reacted to his comments and much more on The Wheelhouse.
