The Packers are signing Devin Funchess, according to a report from NFL Media's Tom Pelissero.

Seeing as none of the three eclipsed 477 yards or three touchdowns, another wide receiver was a top priority in Green Bay. Receiver was a top need for the team this offseason as Davante Adams was Aaron Rodgers' only target who eclipsed the 500-yard receiving mark previous year.

The Green Bay Packers have been pretty quiet in free agency, but they made a move on Tuesday.

A daily average of 1,338 samples have been tested in India during the past five days, the Health and Family Welfare Ministry said. Health researchers have warned that more than a million people in India could be infected with the coronavirus by mid-May.

Funchess, 25, has played in 62 career games (41 starts) in his time with the Colts (2019) and Carolina Panthers (2015-18) and has compiled 164 receptions for 2,265 yards and 21 touchdowns.

Funchess, who turns 26 in May, was a second-round pick in 2015 by the Panthers out of MI. If the Packers can get similar production out of the former second-round pick, it'll greatly help a Green Bay passing offense that ranked in the bottom half of the league last season.

Funchess is still young (26) undoubtedly comes cheaper than what the Colts paid last March and will give the Packers another big bodied wideout across from Davante Adams.
