The Chicago Bears and the Los Angeles Chargers have agreed to terms on a trade that will send wide receiver Dontrelle Inman to the Chicago Bears in exchange for a 2018 7th round selection.
The Chicago Bears have been having issues at wide receiver all-season long as injuries have depleted this receiving core and now they can add some depth to the position. Dontrelle Inman has spent all season as a non-factor in the Chargers passing game due in part of who is in front of him on the depth chart. Dontrelle Inman has been no stranger to trade rumors as his name has been mentioned in potential trades during the offseason and with him not being a factor for Los Angeles they did him a favor in trading him.
Dontrelle Inman, 28, is in a contract year and it seemed unlikely that the Chargers were going to re-sign him during the 2018 offseason. Dontrelle Inman will now get the opportunity to get more reps in a Bears offense who don’t have Cameron Meredith and Kevin White. Dontrelle Inman should become an immediate contributor going forward for the Bears.
