Funchess and Allen Lazard are the leading candidates for Green Bay's No. 2 spot at wide receiver, Mike Spofford of Packers.com reports.

Funchess signed a one-year, $2.5 million contract in March, likely expecting that his new team would add some wideout competition in the draft. The Packers instead focused on other positions, leaving Funchess, Lazard and Jake Kumerow, among others, to compete for slotting behind target hog Davante Adams. The 26-year-old Funchess had plenty of time to regain his health after a broken collarbone held him out for the final 15 games of last season with the Colts, so he should be a full participant whenever Green Bay is able to practice.
