This is breaking news. Please refresh for updates. The Packers bypassed receiver prospects in the draft after signing Devin Funchess. But the recent acquisition will not play for Green Bay this season. He will opt out, Field Yates of ESPN.com reports (on Twitter).

Dammit. Should have drafted a WR who would have suited up.

It's enough to piss of the Good Humor Man.

Seriously I don't have a problem with anyone who feels the need to opt out. Skip social gatherings. Not go to a wedding or funeral. Or even sit in the stands to watch a game. I told one of my cousins who told me he doesn't go anywhere, you only get once chance at this. There are no do overs if you mess up.

I personally think that all of us will be opting out of the 2020 NFL season.

Not purposely not willingly; I sure as hell will not! But I know what you mean, especially if baseball shuts down before we get that first game under our belts.

The Packers don't have too guys, but they do have depth, both Lazard and MVS out together short stretches were they were putting up #2 like numbers.

Irvin was being.mote and more used as a gadget receiver.

Sternberger and St. Brown might be able to step up at the slot role where I believed Funchess was going to be slotted (pun intended). And Tonyan and the rookie TE behind them.

If he's the only one, and they stay healthy, I don't think this hurts too much.

Bears NT Eddie Goldman opted out, with the lost of a couple of others, I'm avoiding Hicks, Mack and Fuller, attack the rest! Run at them.to not let Hicks and Mack get started.

The way it’s going, it will end up 3 guys against 3.
People are working at stores, coming in contact with hundreds of people every day, for $10 an hour.
But these millionaires won’t suit up for millions a season.
Must be nice to be able to afford to turn down work that most people would love to do for 10% of the pay.

I am hoping somebody can explain the contract situation for this. Packers signed this guy to a 1 year deal. Is he done? Did we actually pay this guy any money? Surely, any signing bonus money should be returned.

Yes, it's simple, those that opt out have their contact pushed ahead one year.

So now his 1 year contract is for 2021 instead of 2020.

It's slightly more complex that that as they get an advance, but that doesn't effect the cap (I don't think), and accursed season for if they have a medical reason, but the simple version is their contract just gets pushed back a year.

Signing bonus money was/is guaranteed. He keeps it. Least ways that what I heard.

Yes, he keeps the signing bonus (unless he retires/quite) but he's still employed, just pushed one year back.

Based on spotrac, the only surprise is that he still gets 50k for workout bonus.

https://www.spotrac.com/...s/devin-funchess-16764/# 

But $1 million signing bonus which he received when he signed.

$50,000 work out bonus for 2020.

The rest of the $1,215,625 "tolls" to 2021. So he's under contract for 1 year, just like he signed for. One year.
