"We're going to be a dynamic duo, two 6-5 guys out there on the outside just making damage and causing havoc on the field," Funchess told the Detroit News last week. "You never see that type of duo in the league, two 6-5 guys on the outside that are athletic and that can run and go up and get the ball. Nobody has that wingspan in the league like us, so it's going to be fun during the season."
While they don't possess much speed, the Benjamin-Funchess combo should aid quarterback Cam Newton, who has a tendency to spray high on passes.
Fresh off stating his goal of winning the Offensive Rookie of the Year award, Funchess added that his career at Michigan never displayed his full potency at the receiver position.
Funchess spent his first two seasons at Michigan playing tight end.
If healthy, that is certainly a crew that can cause mismatches and havoc for secondaries.
