Colts' Devin Funchess: Endorsed by head coach
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Frank Reich said at this week's owner's meetings that he pushed for the Colts to sign Funchess this offseason, Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star reports. "I'm so excited about Devin. I mean, when I watch his tape, what I see is a big man who is really athletic. I like to talk about having route-running skill -- this combination of having good feet, good instincts and good body control, and then what sometimes we refer to as body quickness ... it helps you separate at the top of routes, it helps you get off versus press coverage. And Devin has all of that," Reich explained.

Funchess came to Indianapolis on a one-year, $10 million contract this offseason after a year in which he finished as Pro Football Focus' 73rd-ranked receiver. However, the 6-foot-4 receiver's grade was in part dragged down by his poor performance on deep routes, which is something he may not be asked to do often on a Colts team that has one of the best lid-lifters in the league in T.Y. Hilton. With that said, his best work comes when he's used as more of a possession receiver and goal-line target, and he'll have to compete with for end-zone looks within an offense that loves to use its tight ends. It's also possible that Indianapolis uses an early-round draft pick on a receiver this spring to join a receiving corps that otherwise includes Hilton, Jack Doyle and Eric Ebron.

Panthers' Devin Funchess: Inks deal with Colts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Colts are expected to sign Funchess to a one-year contract, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, the deal is worth $13 million. Indianapolis entered the offseason with the most available cap space, but such an amount seems like an overpay for a wide receiver that never tallied more than 900 yards in any of his four pro campaigns. Nonetheless, his new employer doesn't have much receiving talent beyond T.Y. Hilton (ankle) and Eric Ebron, so there should be plenty of volume left over for Funchess from Andrew Luck.

Panthers' Devin Funchess: Done with Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Funchess acknowledged he is looking for a new team, Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports.

The writing was on the wall when Funchess served as a healthy scratch for the final game of the 2018 campaign. It appears neither player nor team has any interest in a reunion, with D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel locked in as the top wide receivers in Carolina. The 24-year-old Funchess may want to consider a one-year contract if he's confident his 2017 breakout wasn't a fluke.

Panthers' Devin Funchess: Set to hit free-agent market
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers have not expressed a desire to bring Funchess back in 2019, David Newton of ESPN reports.

Head coach Ron Rivera indicated Carolina was "moving forward" when the team decided to sit Funchess for the regular-season finale last month. Now scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in March, Funchess appears to have played his last snaps for the Panthers. The tall-but-slow wideout (Funchess owns 4.70-second time in the 40-yard dash) wasn't the best fit in an offense that prioritizes yards after the catch anyway, so this development could be mutually beneficial.

Panthers' Devin Funchess: Sitting out season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Funchess (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Saints, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Funchess' snap and targets counts have been trending down for the last month, but it's still somewhat surprising that he's a health scratch for the season finale. It almost certainly spells an end to his stint in Carolina, as Funchess will become a free agent in March and is unlikely to be retained after youngsters D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel passed him up on the depth chart at receiver this season.
