Three questions with Carolina Panthers rookie wide receiver Devin Funchess:

Q. Is (second-year wide receiver) Kelvin Benjamin one of the guys who’s been looking out for you early on?

A. “Yeah. He’s making sure I know all of my stuff and know where I’m supposed to be.”

Q. You’re from Michigan. It’s not even 9 a.m. here and you can already feel this stickiness. Is this something you’ve been prepared for or is it a little more than you thought it’d be?

A. “It hasn’t been that humid up in Michigan but it’s been hot. It was 93 yesterday and 90 the rest of the week. I’ve just been outside getting used to it.”

Q. Are there any tricks you can use to get used to it?

A. “Oh, no. There are no tricks. It’s Mother Nature at her best down here.”
