Washington Football Team To Sign Dontrelle Inman

Dontrelle Inman is expected to sign with the Washington Football Team after he completes a physical on Monday, as Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweets. The wide receiver will provide depth for a team that lost Kelvin Harmon to an ACL tear earlier this summer.

Harmon was set to feature as one of the Redskins’ top receivers, alongside Terry McLaurin and Trey Quinn. With Harmon no longer in the picture for 2020, Inman figures to slot somewhere alongside Cam Sims, Steven Sims Jr., and fourth-round pick Antonio Gandy-Golden on the depth chart. The status of Cody Latimer – who facing multiple charges following his May arrest – remains murky.

Inman made his name with the Chargers in 2016, catching 58 passes for 810 yards and four touchdowns in a breakout season. In recent years, he’s bounced around a bit. The Bolts traded Inman to the Bears midway through 2017, but he wasn’t able to regain his old form. In 2018, he inked a one-year deal with the Colts and went on to catch 28 passes for 304 yards and three scores in nine games. Last year, he signed deals with the Patriots and Chargers before circling back to the Colts. All in all, he finished 2019 with 12 grabs for 181 yards.

    The Washington Football Team would be the Seattle Seahawks. If you mean the D.C. team it’s the redskins.

      That’s so weird because I’m pretty sure the DC team has actually announced they’ll be called the Washington football team until further notice!

      I don’t know, maybe something about having their team name as a common racial slur or something? Who’s to say!

    Going to call them the Washington Hogs until they decide to go back to Redskins or they pick a new name.

    They should do the right thing and honor the great white offensive line coach Joe Bugel who coined the term. Passed this year back in June.

      Might as well just adopt a menacing boar logo and roll with the “Hogs” nickname

    Joining the team that was dead last in time of possession is a great way for a WR to revive a stalled career…lol.

    Inman showed good promise as a number two or three with the Chargers in a season that saw their top receiving options decimated by injuries. For someone not very highly drafted, Inman contributed pretty well in that offense. With Washington’s uncertainty all over the offense, Inman has a prime opportunity to assume a significant role in the offense now. I don’t think he’ll be a superstar, but he or McLaurin (who in all likelihood is the best receiver Washington has currently but may work better in the slot) will end up as Washington’s top receiver on the depth chart at the start of the season.

    I’m guessing the average age of commented here is somewhere between 8 years and old racist.
