Devin Funchess Jersey

As their first free agent signing of the offseason, wide receiver Devin Funchess is bringing the Indianapolis Colts some upside, but he also carries a history of drops.
While the tape shows it wasn’t a huge issue during the first half of the season in 2018 when he was with the Carolina Panthers, it did have a massive impact in his game during the second half.

When asked about an issue with drops during a conference call with reporters Thursday, Funchess isn’t paying any mind to that.

“I don’t really even remember last season. Today is March 14 I believe. So I am not worried about all of that and I am ready to go,” Funchess said. “All of that stuff is in the past. I don’t live in the past. I live for today.”

Funchess might be looking to bury his second half deep in his mind, but it was there. Regardless, the Colts have enough confidence that he can be a solid contributor on the boundary after they gave him a one-year contract that be worth up to $13 million.
The 24-year-old wide receiver is a strong route-runner for his size while showing quick footwork and the line of scrimmage. He’ll need to prove the drops are truly behind him, but he could be considered a similar project to that of Eric Ebron.

The Colts offense needs depth in the wide receiver room, and they are hoping Funchess can reach the next level of performance while getting rid of the drop issues.
