Inman was tagged with a second-round tender earlier this offseason, and was free to negotiate with other teams. His decision to return to the Chargers means that veteran QB Philip Rivers will keep one of his most reliable targets from last season.


The 6-3, 205-pound Inman is entering his fourth season with the Bolts after joining the team out of the CFL in 2014. He emerged as one of Rivers’ favorite weapons the following season, catching 35 passes for 486 yards and three touchdowns in 14 games with seven starts.

Last season was Inman’s breakout year as he set career-highs across the board. He started all 16 games while catching 58 passes for 810 yards and four TDs.  Overall, Inman has caught 105 passes for 1,454 yards and seven touchdowns in 37 career games. 

Inman was the Chargers' second-leading receiver in 2016, behind Tyrell Williams.
