Biography

One player to keep an eye on in 2016 is wide receiver Dontrelle Inman. A former import from the Canadian Football League’s Toronto Argonauts, Inman more than tripled his production from 2014 to 2015. His 13.9 yards per catch average in 2015 was the highest on the team and 29th-highest in the NFL among players with at least 35 catches.

Inman enjoyed a number of memorable moments in 2015. Among them, 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 Christmas Eve 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, Inman 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 over-the-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.
