Green Bay signed Funchess in April to a one-year deal that was reportedly worth $2.5 million.
The Michigan product missed all but one game last season for the Indianapolis Colts after breaking his collarbone in Week 1. The 6-foot-4, 225-pound Funchess had 161 catches in four seasons with the Carolina Panthers after being taken in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft. He also had 21 touchdowns, including a career-high eight in 2017. That was the 26-year-old’s best overall season, as he posted 63 catches for 840 yards (13.3 yards per reception.)
Funchess’ 164 career catches would have been the second-most among the wide receivers currently on Green Bay’s roster.
