Green Bay general manager Brian Gutekunst says Devin Funchess’ decision to opt out for this season isn’t necessarily causing the Packers to get more aggressive in seeking help at the wide receiver position.

Funchess announced Tuesday he isn’t playing this season for the safety of himself and his family while noting that some of his closest relatives “have experienced the life-threatening impact of COVID-19 first hand.”
