Washington Football Team signs former CFL turned veteran NFL receiver Dontrelle Inman

The Washington Football Team has officially signed former CFL receiver Dontrelle Inman.

The 31-year-old Inman has appeared in 65 NFL games totalling 170 receptions for 2,282 yards and 11 touchdowns. His best season came with the then-San Diego Chargers in 2016, when he made 58 receptions for 810 yards and found the end zone four times.

“I’m pretty excited about bringing in a young man like that who has some playing experience,” head coach Ron Rivera said about Inman. “It’s a young group of receivers we have, and any time you get an opportunity to bring a player in that’s had success, we’re excited about it.”

Washington has already lost Kelvin Harmon due to a torn ACL, and Cody Latimer is currently on the commissioner’s exempt list. Inman also brings experience to the bunch, as he has more career games played than every other receiver on the active roster combined — 65 for the veteran and 59 everyone else.

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 tack on to his career earnings of over $6.3 million.
