TORONTO – The Toronto Argonauts Football Club announced today the signing of American WR Dontrelle Inman.

Inman, 34, returns to Toronto 10 years after last suiting up in Double Blue. The 6’3, 205lb receiver signed with Toronto in 2012, caught 50 passes for 803 yards and five touchdowns and helped the Argos win the 2012 Grey Cup on home soil at SkyDome, catching five passes for 43 yards and a score. The following season, Inman hauled in 50 more passes for 739 yards and six more majors before being released to pursue NFL opportunities. The South Carolina native spent the last seven years in the NFL with Washington, Los Angeles (Chargers, twice), Indianapolis (twice), Chicago and the San Diego Chargers. The Virginia alum’s best season came in 2016 when he caught 58 passes for 810 yards and four touchdowns for the then San Diego Chargers. Over the course of his seven NFL seasons, Inman played 75 games and caught 188 passes for 2,445 yards and 13 touchdowns.
