Now onto a CFL success story that doesn’t get the coverage that it deserves. Undrafted out of Virginia, Inman caught on with the Argos in 2012 and quickly became one of Ricky Ray’s go-to targets on the outside.
Inman snagged 50 passes for 803 yards and five scores in 2012, and followed that up with similar numbers in 2013. Inman, like many imports, wanted to try his hand down south, and the Argos granted him his release at the conclusion of the 2013 season.

After treading water for a couple seasons with the San Diego Chargers, Inman exploded in 2016 for 58 receptions, 810 yards and four touchdowns, almost identical numbers to his first season in the CFL.
After his best season as a pro, however, the Bolts moved Inman to Chicago in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick. He only played eight games in the Windy City before hitting free agency and signing with the Colts.
His first stint in Indy wouldn’t last long, as he returned to the Chargers the following year. But, the tug-of-war battle between the Colts and Bolts for Inman’s services would continue, as Indianapolis would scoop him up once again, which brings us to the present day.
Inman played out the tail end of 2019 with the Colts and is now on the open market as a UFA.
