Funchess on 1 year deal?

would you do it? He's a big receiver. Garret style. Gettleman drafted him. Sort of reminds of bit of Burress when he is playing well.
No. When you sign a big receiver without great speed, you want

someone who is reliable. Funchess's catch rate is 52% for his career. This is a good draft to add a rookie receiver.

he is lazy. I liked his game but there is a reason Carolina got rid of him.
That said

we should be looking for a big WR just not him.
Ordinarily, that might not be a bad idea.

But the more I see of the 2020 WR prospects, the more I think it's not a question of if the Giants draft one, but when. And among the sizable pool of WR talent are quite a few bigger guys. For example, I was just looking at Denzel Mims and Tee Higgins. Both look like starters, maybe a lot more.
I see ya drafting a WR somewhere in day 2 or early day 3

Not sure when the comp picks are announced but late 3rd round or early 4th would probably be good value. Itís a very deep class.
Not a believer in Funchess

He's had many opportunities now and hasn't come through. We have enough cap space finally to shop in a higher tier market than this guy if we're going to address the position in free agency.
He sucks.

We have enough players who suck.
A hard..

pass. Funchess was terrible in work ethic and picking up the playbook, and once he left Carolina, he actually did even worse!
Every time a thread on receivers comes up, I'll say the same thing:  
CT Charlie : 2/9/2020 9:27 pm : link
I want: 1) great hands, 2) excellent route running, and 3) body positioning. I hardly care about size, speed and athleticism. A receiver needs to be at the right place, at the right time, and when the ball comes to him, he catches it.
I'd say no

But would I be at all surprised if we gave him a shot? Not even slightly.
Funchess is the kind of guy you grab off the street

when you have injuries at the position and are desperate. He is not a guy you sign with the intention of being a starter. He is slow and doesn't have particularly good hands.
No he is not a good receiver

If we are going to sign FAs I would hope that the bar is set higher. He drops too many passes for my liking. I live in Carolina and have seen a lot of him. He is not reliable. He is Cody Latimer.
