NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that the Packers are "expected" to sign WR Devin Funchess. A big body on the perimeter for Aaron Rodgers.

Funchess' first season with the Indianapolis Colts lasted less than a full game after he suffered a clavicle injury in the Week 1 matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Seeing as none of the three eclipsed 477 yards or three touchdowns, another wide receiver was a top priority in Green Bay.

The CDC has reportedly stated that rodent population control is the primary strategy for preventing hantavirus infections. This implies that unlike the highly-contagious coronavirus , hantaviruses can't spread easily from one person to another.

The Colts signed Funchess, 25, to a one-year, $10 million contract with the belief his 6-foot-4 frame would help quarterback Jacoby Brissett.

The former MI wide receiver is signing with the Green Bay Packers, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. His best year came in 2017, when he had 63 receptions for 840 yards and eight scores. Other than Adams, a combination of Allen Lazard, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison served as the team's other pass-catchers.

The Green Bay Packers announced that they are establishing COVID-19 Community Relief Funds totaling $1.5-million toward Brown County and the Milwaukee area.
