Aaron Rodgers has a new receiver he'll be throwing to in 2020. WR Devin Funchess is ready to make a big impact for the Packers next season.

Funchess spent the first four years of his NFL career with Carolina before joining Indianapolis for the 2019 season. His time with the Colts didn't go as planned after a fractured clavicle sidelined him for the majority of the year.

The former Panthers and Colts receiver signed a one-year deal with Green Bay this off-season. Contract details for the new deal were released on Saturday afternoon.

Funchess has agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million deal that includes "another $3.75M in available in incentives," according to

My understanding it’s a one-year, $2.5 million deal for Devin Funchess with the #Packers — $1M signing bonus, $1.2M base salary, $50K workout bonus and $15,625 for each game active. Another $3.75M available in incentives, so max is $6.25M.

The new deal makes sense for both Funchess and the Packers. It's essentially a low risk, high reward type of signing.

If Funchess doesn't produce like Green Bay is hoping he will, the Packers are off the hook in 2021. The incentive-driven contract also provides plenty of motivation for the 6-foot-4 receiver as he hopes to bounce back in 2020 and have a big year.

Rodgers is certainly hoping the signing pays off as the Packers lacked weapons in the passing game last season.
