GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – New Packers wide receiver Devin Funchess is the first Green Bay player to opt out of the 2020 season.
Funchess announced the decision on his Instagram page.
The veteran wide receiver played four years with Carolina and spent the 2019 season in Indianapolis before the Packers picked him up in free agency. The 6-foot-4 wideout was expected to be a crucial piece for quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay offense.
More than two dozen NFL players have already opted out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19 concerns.
