Houstonian Simone Biles, known throughout the world as the GOAT, history’s top gymnast, a passionate defender of women, and champion of mental health, now has a new title: fiancée.

Biles and her boyfriend, Houston Texans safety Jonathan Owens announced their engagement on February 15 on dual Instagram posts, apparently on Valentine’s Day.

“THE EASIEST YES,” Biles exclaimed to her partner. “I can’t wait to spend forever and ever with you, you’re everything I dreamed of and more! let’s get married FIANCÉ.”

Owens, a speedster safety who describes himself as a “kid from St. Louis,” shared on his IG: “Woke up this morning with a fiancée,” and to his future wife: “ready for forever with you.” Kudos to Owens, as it was clearly a surprise proposal: “she really had no clue what was coming,” he noted on IG.

Photos of the couple show Owens in a suit on bended knee, while a gleeful Biles, decked out in a black dress, beams at the ring. She then jumps into his arms in a picturesque gazebo. The couple also share a kiss with champagne glasses and a video reveals the dazzling ring. Biles and Owens had been vacationing in Las Vegas.

Deshaun Watson will make his Cleveland Browns debut this Sunday against his former team at NRG Stadium. Watson has completed his suspension from the NFL for alleged sexual misconduct with dozens of massage therapists, and this Sunday will be the first game he has played in 700 days.

The Browns sit at 4-7 hoping Watson will be the spark the team needs to stack some wins and get into the Wild Card race. The Texans are still searching for their second win of the season, and many believe the team will be hiring another head coach come January.

With this in mind, who has the worst reputation? The Texans or Deshaun Watson?

It seems like an easy answer with Watson's legal troubles, but upon further review, the answer has to be the Texans. The Texans have hired two consecutive coaches that no other NFL team even interviewed. It seems like no quality candidates have any interest in coaching the Texans. Watson, however, had teams lining up for his services when the Texans decided to trade him.

Be sure to check out the video above as we dive into this topic and make a convincing case, as crazy as it sounds, that Watson is perceived to have a better reputation.
