Many had wondered when the Packers were going to add a receiver this offseason and it appears as though it took until Robby Anderson signed for the market to start picking up.
Green Bay could use a receiver to compliment Davante Adams and Funchess is an interesting young player to add to their offense.
Funchess, 25, 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 last year.
Funchess was once again testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
