As if there weren’t plenty of reasons for the Packers to draft at least one receiver in 2020, here’s another: Receiver Devin Funchess has opted out, according to Field Yates of ESPN.com.

Funchess, a second-round pick of the Panthers in 2015 who played most recently with the Colts, signed with Green Bay in the offseason.

The Packers have nine other receivers on the roster, including Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Equanimeous St. Brown, Allen Lazard, Jake Kumerow, Malik Taylor, Darrell Stewart, Darrius Shepherd, and Reggie Begelton.

  1. If that list of WRs doesn’t want to make you cancel the season i don’t what one will?

  2. Very disappointing news, but as I’ve said before, I don’t fault any player for opting in or out during what is definitely going to be a trying and tricky season.
    Definitely opens the door for Jake Kumerow and the CFL kid Reggie Begelton.

    Also, with the influx of new receivers from the draft, expect a few veterans to be cut loose because of financial considerations.
    Matt LaFleur and BG could go that route if they feel the need to.
    Moving on!

    I agree with the sentiment but you should see Washington’s WR depth chart. TE too for that matter. Woof

  4. Lot of Viking fans running their mouth as usual. This same squad squashed your team twice last year and ran away with the division so I wouldn’t be so quick to talk.

    Funny how the talkers didn’t have anything to say when Pierce opted out…

    Can you blame him?
    Who’d want to walk into that COVID Hatchery tgey have there?

    Really? Not a single Packer has tested positive yet and Minnesota is currently logging twice as many COVID deaths as Wisconsin.
    Try again.
