Devin Funchess, a 6-4, 240-pound wide receiver who spent his first four seasons with the Carolina Panthers, is coming to Indianapolis on a one-year deal, Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star reports.
Funchess is just 24 years old, and the Colts hope he brings the sort of size and big-play ability that Frank Reich’s offense wants behind Pro Bowler T.Y. Hilton. The team’s depth at wide receiver was a glaring need entering free agency, and Funchess is the first addition.
The former Michigan Wolverine turned in his best season in 2017, grabbing 63 catches for 840 yards and eight touchdowns, but in no other season has he had more than 44 catches.
“I’m 24 years old,” Funchess told the NFL Network prior to free agency. “I can run whatever you want me to run on the field, and I’m ready to go get a ‘W,’ that’s it. A Super Bowl ring, let’s go get it.”
