Chicago Bears defensive end Mitch Unrein is married to Corey Cogdell-Unrein, who will represent the United States as a trap shooter at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

When Chicago hosted its Family Fest on Saturday, Unrein's teammates showed a great deal of support for his wife:

Cogdell-Unrein won bronze at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, and her husband has high hopes for this year.

"I know that she's one of the best shooters in the world," the 29-year-old defensive end told Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times. "If she has a really good day Sunday, there’s no doubt she can win the gold medal."

Win or lose, the Bears are behind her:
