The 49ers announced that they’ve signed Funches and CB Luq Barcoo to their practice squad on Wednesday and released WR Austin Watkins from the unit. 

Here’s the 49ers updated practice squad:

  1. DE Alex Barrett
  2. WR River Cracraft
  3. DT Darrion Daniels (Injured)
  4. T Alfredo Gutierrez (International)
  5. RB Josh Hokit
  6. QB Nate Sudfeld
  7. TE Tanner Hudson
  8. DB Kai Nacua (Injured)
  9. WR Jordan Matthews
  10. WR Connor Wedington
  11. CB Davontae Harris
  12. C Jon Halapio
  13. S Tony Jefferson
  14. LB Tyrell Adams
  15. OT Corbin Kaufusi
  16. DB Saivion Smith
  17. DL Chris Slayton
  18. WR Devin Funchess
  19. CB Luq Barcoo

Funchess worked out for the team earlier in the day and apparently was impressive enough to get a contract offer. 

Funchess, 27, is a former second-round pick by the Panthers in the 2015 NFL Draft out of Michigan. He finished his four-year rookie contract with Carolina before agreeing to a one-year deal worth up to $13 million with the Colts in 2019. 

Funchess was once again testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent this offseason when he signed a one-year contract worth $2.5 million with the Packers. However, he opted out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19 concerns. 

He agreed to a roughly $750,000 pay cut to stay in Green Bay this season back in March but was released in August. 

In 2019, Funchess appeared in one game and caught three passes for 32 yards receiving before being placed on injured reserve with a broken collarbone.

We had him included in our Top 100 Available 2021 Free Agents list.
