Jonathan Owens, a safety, was signed by the Green Bay Packers. On Friday, General Manager Brian Gutekunst made the announcement of the acquisition.
Owens, who plays for the Arizona Cardinals and has a height and weight of 5-11 and 210 pounds, joined the team in 2018 after being
signed by the Cardinals as an undrafted rookie free agency out of Missouri Western. After spending his first professional season on injured reserve with the Cardinals,
the team decided to let him go at the end of the 2019 training camp. On September 30, 2019,
Owens signed with the practice squad of the Houston Texans. Over the next four seasons (2019-22), he appeared in a total of 31 games with 19 starts,
earning 141 tackles (92 solo), an interception, five passes defensed, a sack, a QB hit, a fumble recovery, and two tackles on special teams.
In addition, he recovered a fumble. The previous year, he established new career highs in every facet of the game, starting all 17 games, recording 125 tackles (good for second on the team),
making 84 solo tackles (also good for second on the team), recording a sack, a quarterback hit, and four passes defensed. Owens has been assigned the number 34 jersey by the Packers.
