Colts to Sign Devin Funchess


The Indianapolis Colts dipped their feet into the roaring waters of free agency last night by agreeing to terms with former Panthers wide receiver, Devin Funchess, on a one-year contract worth $13 million, a source told ESPN’s Chris Mortenson, who later added that the deal is split into chunks, paying Funchess a $10 million base and $3 million in available incentives.

Although Funchess was the starter in Carolina for more than a year following the departure of Kelvin Benjamin, his numbers certainly aren’t what you’re looking for if you’re in the market for a higher-level receiver. Through 14 games (12 starts) in 2018, Funchess Hauled in just 44 of the 79 passes thrown in his direction for a total of 549 yards and four touchdowns.

The contract analysts at Spotrac projected Funchess to earn a four-year pact, but they only predicted he would receive $35.6 million over those four seasons, a total of just $8.4 million per season, which is far less than what the Colts are giving him.

Funchess will likely slide into the No. 2 slot on the depth chart behind T.Y. Hilton. A wide receiver signing was high on the list of the Colts’ offseason priorities, and they get the task accomplished on the first day of the tampering period.
