Lions' Devin Funchess: Inks deal with Detroit
Funchess signed a contract with the Lions on Tuesday.
Funchess was released by the Packers with an injury settlement in August last year and joined the 49ers' practice squad shortly before being cut with an injury designation. Now presumably healthy, the 28-year-old will look to carve out a role in Detroit, though he may have an uphill battle to make the roster seeing as he hasn't appeared in a regular-season game since 2019....

Devin Funchess: Out with injury

Funchess joined San Francisco's practice squad last week, and it didn't take long for him to go down with an injury.

Devin Funchess: Signed to 49ers' practice squad
Funchess was added to the 49ers' practice squad Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
The 27-year-old has yet to play this season after reaching an injury settlement with the Packers in the preseason. Now healed from a hamstring injury, Funchess will look to provide depth at wide receiver for the 49ers. He has only appeared in one game since 2018, making three catches for 32 yards in a contest with the Colts in 2019. Funchess signed with the Packers in 2020 but sat out that season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.... See More ... See Less
Devin Funchess: Gets injury settlement
Funchess (hamstring) has been released from IR by the Packers with an injury settlement, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
It remains to be seen how close Funchess is to being able to re-take the field. However, following this move, the wideout is now free to catch on with another team once he recovers from what ESPN's Rob Demovsky previously described as a lingering hamstring injury.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Devin Funchess: Moved to IR
The Packers placed Funchess (lower body) on injured reserve Wednesday.
The timing means he can't return this season unless he agrees to an injury settlement and becomes a free agent again. Even if that happens, Funchess is now 27 years old and has been either injured, ineffective or opted out every season since his 840-yard, eight-touchdown breakout for Carolina back in 2017. It remains to be seen if he's actually dealing with a severe injury or if he just didn't do enough to make the Week 1 roster before suffering a less-serious injury.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Devin Funchess: Unavailable Saturday
Funchess (lower body) will not play Saturday versus the Jets, Jason Wilde of ESPN.com reports.
Funchess was a dominant force in the team's preseason opener corralling six passes for 70 yards against the Texans, but the veteran wideout had to be carted off the field Wednesday with a lower-body injury that was later deemed to not serious. Funchess is in a heated battle for one the team's final roster spots at wide receiver along with Equanimeous St. Brown and Malik Taylor.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Devin Funchess: Carted off at practice
Funchess was carted off the practice field Wednesday with an apparent lower-body injury, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Funchess is coming off an impressive preseason debut, having secured six of eight targets for 70 yards while displaying chemistry with Jordan Love (shoulder). However, the wideout now appears to have suffered a potentially worrisome injury. Funchess opted out of the 2020 season and was only able to suit up for one game in 2019 because of a broken collarbone.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Devin Funchess: No practice Thursday
Funchess (lower body) is not participating in Thursday's practice, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
Funchess had to be carted off the field after pulling up during Wednesday's practice, and while the nature and severity of his apparent injury remain undisclosed, it's not encouraging that he's absent Thursday. At the very least, Funchess is trending in the wrong direction for Saturday's preseason contest against the Jets, and it's within the realm of possibility that he's dealing with a serious injury....

Packers' Devin Funchess: Leading receiver Saturday
Funchess caught six of eight targets for 70 yards in Saturday's preseason loss to the Texans.
With most of the Packers' starting skill players off for the night, including Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams, Funchess got a chance to make an impact with Jordan Love (shoulder) under center, and he took advantage, leading all receivers in catches and yards. The 27-year-old is looking to get his career back on track after opting out of last season and playing only one game in 2019 due to a broken collarbone. Funchess will need to continue making good impressions if he's going to win a roster spot.... See More ... See Less
Packers' Devin Funchess: Not assured roster spot
Funchess is not assured a spot on the Packers' roster, per Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com.
Funchess has had several productive seasons since entering the league in 2015, but his last one came in 2018, so his track record only counts for so much. He opted out of last season just a few months after joining the Packers, and according to head coach Matt LaFleur, "there is a lot to learn there and (Funchess) has got to continue to grind over the summer so he can put his best foot forward come training camp." Four Packers wideouts are virtually assured of making the cut, so Funchess will need to beat out Equanimeous St. Brown and a host of other players -- or at least all but one or two receivers in that group -- to come away with a spot for Week 1....

Packers' Devin Funchess: Agrees to pay cut
Funchess is accepting a pay cut of approximately $750,000 to stay with the Packers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Funchess opted out of the 2020 season a few months after he signed a one-year, $2.5 million contract. The deal tolls over to 2021, and the Packers apparently were ready to release him if he didn't agree to a smaller salary. Funchess will be only 27 years old for the upcoming season, but he's played in just one game since the end of 2018, bouncing from Carolina to Indianapolis to Green Bay. He may end up battling for a roster spot this summer.... See More ... See Less
