The New England Patriots added more low-cost depth at the wide receiver position this week.
Dontrelle Inman signed a one-year contract with the Patriots on Monday. While terms of his deal weren't announced, ESPN's Mike Reiss shared a few details of the wide receiver's contract Wednesday night.
Contract note: WR Dontrelle Inman's 1-year deal includes a $200k signing bonus, $100k of his base salary guaranteed, $300k in roster bonuses, and a $100k reporting bonus, in addition to incentives up to $1m. This reflects how he had other suitors. This isn't a minimum-level deal.— Mike Reiss (@MikeReiss) May 16, 2019
Reiss also noted he doesn't believe Inman's base salary is above $805,000, the minimum salary for a player with five years of service time.
Inman tallied just 28 receptions for 304 yards with the Indianapolis Colts last season but is three years removed from a 58-catch, 810-yard campaign with the Chargers, and Reiss suggests the Patriots had competition to sign the 30-year-old.
Inman also will be competing for snaps in New England, as he joins Demaryius Thomas, Maurice Harris and rookie N'Keal Harry among new additions to the receiving corps.
Inman's contract isn't as incentive-laden as that of Thomas, who reportedly could earn up to $6 million off a $1.2 million base salary. He still has the chance to earn decent money if he makes the 53-man roster, though.
