The Colts worked out wide receiver Dontrelle Inman, according to ESPN.com’s Field Yates (on Twitter). Inman, who was recently released off of injured reserve by the Chargers, could reunite with the Colts after spending some time with them in 2018.
Inman entered the league as an undrafted free agent out of Virginia in 2014 and emerged as a legitimate pass-catching option for the Bolts. In 2016, he enjoyed a breakout season with 58 catches for 810 yards and four touchdowns.
Ever since, he’s bounced around a bit. The Chargers traded Inman to the Bears midway through the 2017 season, where he was unable to recapture his old magic. Then, he inked a one-year deal with the Colts, where
A series of offseason moves relegated Inman to the bench and he was traded to the Bears during the 2017 season. In Chicago, Inman returned to the starting lineup, but was unable to replicate his success from the year prior. As a free agent that offseason, Inman signed a one-year deal with the Colts and went on to appear in 15 games with nine starts. Still, he barely topped 300 yards receiving.
This year, he had a brief dalliance with Patriots before circling back to the Chargers. The veteran shined in Week 4 when he caught five balls for 76 yards as Mike Williams‘ fill-in, but a quad injury landed him on IR and, eventually, put him on the curb.
If signed, Inman could make his Colts return against the Bucs on Sunday afternoon.
