Biography

Steady and reliable are two words that come to mind when describing wide receiver Dontrelle Inman.

A former import from the Canadian Football League’s Toronto Argonauts, Inman started all 16 games for the first time in his career in 2016 and he finished the year as the Chargers’ second-leading receiver.

In three seasons with the Chargers, Inman’s stats have gone up exponentially each year. From 2014- 16, Inman’s catch total went from 12 to 35 to 58; his receiving yardage total went from 158 to 486 to 810, and his touchdown total went from 0 to 3 to 4.

Inman has enjoyed some memorable moments with the Chargers. He caught his first NFL touchdown pass in historic Lambeau Field. He was on the receiving end of the pass that put Philip Rivers over 40,000 yards for his career. And during a 2015 game in Oakland, the wide receiver had to play free safety in overtime after injuries had decimated the Bolts’ secondary.

Inman originally came to the NFL in 2011. He signed with Jacksonville, but due to the NFL Lockout, there was no offseason program, and Inman went to training camp far behind the team’s veterans. After being released, he caught on with the Argonauts, where he played two seasons (2012-13) and won a Grey Cup championship in 2012. In Toronto, Inman was coached by former NFL quarterback Scott Milanovich, who was a good friend of former Chargers Offensive Coordinator Frank Reich. Looking to return to the NFL, Milanovich gave Reich a glowing recommendation and Inman joined the Chargers in 2014.

Inman earned a spot on the 2014 opening day roster after a preseason that included a 100-yard game against Dallas, highlighted by a 70-yard overthe-shoulder touchdown catch. Once the regular season rolled around, however, his playing time was sporadic. Then during a late December game in San Francisco with the team’s postseason hopes on the line, Inman was inserted into the lineup early in the second half of a game the Chargers trailed by 21 points. He made a fingertip catch on the first ball thrown his way and finished the night with seven catches for 79 yards. It included a 17-yard catch on a fourth-down play late in the fourth quarter that was part of a game-tying touchdown drive. The Chargers rallied to defeat the 49ers in overtime, 38-35, matching the greatest comeback in franchise history
