The Green Bay Packers have finally addressed their depth at wide receiver via free agency.  It was reported on Tuesday night that the Packers are expected to sign former Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Devin Funchess.

At 6'4", Funchess gives the Packers a huge red-zone target for Aaron Rodgers to throw to.

The 25-year played a little bit a tight end while playing at Michigan in college.  He was selected in the second round by the Carolina Panthers in the 2015 Draft.

Funchess played four seasons with the Panthers, including an appearance in Super Bowl 50.  He joined the Indianapolis Colts last season, playing only one game with the team due to a collarbone injury that placed him on injured reserve for the season.

It'll be interesting to see how adding Funchess impacts the Packers' upcoming draft plans.
