Just hours after bringing him in for a workout, the New England Patriots bolstered their receiving corps on Friday by landing a player many teams coveted.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Patriots signed wide receiver Dontrelle Inman to a one-year deal, who chose New England over three other teams.
The player: Inman has been a journeyman for much of his NFL career, spending time with three teams over the past two seasons.
- The 30-year-old played for the Indianapolis Colts in 2018 and hauled in 28 receptions for 334 receiving yards and one touchdown.
- He stepped up more in the postseason with a combined 108 receiving yards and a touchdown in two games.
The fit: Inman joins a receiving corps that is pretty thin outside of Julian Edelman and first-round pick N’Keal Harry.
- New England signed Demaryius Thomas in April, but he is still recovering from a torn Achilles tendon.
- Phillip Dorsett re-signed with the Patriots this offseason but he is still only expected to play in a limited role.
This should be an excellent opportunity for Inman to prove himself with a great organization and quarterback, it’s only made better by the fact he will have a chance to win a Super Bowl as well.
