The Packers are signing Devin Funchess, according to a report from NFL Media's Tom Pelissero. After a somewhat disappointing 2018 campaign, Funchess was still able to pull down a one-year, $10MM deal from the Colts last offseason.

The Green Bay Packers are keeping veteran tight end Marcedes Lewis as he gets ready for his 15th National Football League season.

Funchess, who turns 26 in May, was a second-round pick in 2015 by the Panthers out of MI. He had three catches for 32 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers prior to the injury.

Last season, the Packers relied heavily on Adams, who despite playing just 12 games, led the team in receiving by over 500 yards. He will join a WR corps that includes Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Jake Kumerow in support of the elite Davante Adams.

The Green Bay Packers are creating COVID-19 Community Relief Funds to assist efforts in Brown County and the Milwaukee area.

As for Funchess, the 6-foot-4, 225-pound receiver had his best year in 2017 when he recorded 63 catches for 840 yards and eight touchdowns for Carolina.
