NFL: Chicago Bears at San Diego Chargers Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Chargers have traded veteran wide receiver Dontrelle Inman tot he Chicago Bears for a 7th round pick. Adam Schefter of ESPN reported via Twitter:

This is no real surprise in that Inman was no longer able to get on the field for the Chargers with the return of Mike Williams. The return of a 7th round pick is not thrilling, but even the most optimistic fan could have really only been hoping for a 6th. Inman was a terrific story, but ultimately he was the fifth receiver on the 18th-best offense in the NFL and he couldn’t even push to be active on gameday, so any return that helps you in the future has to be considered a positive.

Inman had become a quality receiver that Philip Rivers was able to rely on when everyone else was injured and Chargers fans should feel at least a little sad to see him go, but this is a good decision that should benefit the football team.
