Rapoport adds that Chargers’ veteran QB Philip Rivers “played a big part” in Inman’s decision to sign with Los Angeles.
Inman, 30, originally signed on with the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent out of Virginia back in 2011. Jacksonville decided to waive him shortly afterward and he remained unsigned before joining the Chargers in 2014.
The Chargers re-signed Inman to a one-year restricted deal worth $2.746 million for the 2017 season before trading him to the Bears for a conditional seventh-round pick. He spent a year with the Colts before the Patriots signed him this offseason.
In 2018, Inman appeared in nine games for the Colts and caught 28 passes for 304 yards receiving and three touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 38 receiver out of 117 qualifying players.
