Former CFL receiver Dontrelle Inman visited the Washington Football Team on Sunday and it’s expected he’ll sign with the franchise Monday.
According to ESPN’s Field Yates, it seems a contract could be in the works: Washington hosted WR Dontrelle Inman on a free agent visit. NFL teams are permitted to bring players in for visits if they have an intention to sign them, so keep an eye on Inman sticking around to add depth.
The Washington Football Team is expected to sign WR Dontrelle Inman, source said, a move that should be made today pending physical, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.
The 31-year-old Inman has 170 receptions for 2,282 yards and 11 touchdowns during six seasons in the NFL, playing for the San Diego and Los Angeles Chargers, Chicago Bears and Indianapolis Colts. His best year came with Philip Rivers throwing him passes, grabbing 58 balls for 810 yards and four touchdowns for the bolts in 2016. The six-foot-three, 205-pounder still has the ability to be productive and Inman could provide immediate veteran help.
Inman earned his first NFL roster spot with the Chargers in 2014. That opportunity came after Inman stood out for the Toronto Argonauts. He played two seasons in double blue catching 100 passes for 1,542 yards and 11 touchdowns throughout the 2012 and 2013 campaigns north of the border, which included being a key part of the Argos’ 2012 Grey Cup-winning team.
Washington is the latest stop on Inman’s resume amid the COVID-19 pandemic as he’ll on to his career earnings of over $6.3 million.
