Inman will visit with the Lions on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Inman failed to latch on with a team last offseason but eventually made an impact after he signed with the Colts in mid-October. He caught 28 of 39 targets for 304 yards and three touchdowns in nine regular-season games, later adding eight catches for 108 yards and another score in two playoff appearances. The 30-year-old had an 800-yard season for the Chargers in 2016 and owns a career mark of 8.1 yards per target, but most teams seem to view him as a No. 4-quality receiver rather than a consistent contributor. He'd likely land fourth on the depth chart in Detroit, where Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones (knee) and Danny Amendola project as the regular three-wide alignment.
Inman recorded 304 yards and three touchdowns on 28 receptions in nine games during 2018.
Inman joined the Colts midway through the 2018 season and ended the year as the team's No. 2 wide receiver. He scored a touchdown in the final two regular-season games and recorded over 50 receiving yards in each of Indianapolis' playoff games. The 29-year-old receiver has had two relatively down years after a breakout 810-yard, four-touchdown campaign for the Chargers in 2016. He'll become an undrafted free agent this offseason and could secure a role as a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver with a club in 2019, which would make him a potential fantasy option in the late rounds next year.
Inman (shoulder/finger) does not carry an injury designation for Saturday's divisional-round playoff game against the Chiefs.
Inman was limited at practice both Wednesday and Thursday, but he'll be out there Saturday to provide Andrew Luck with a viable secondary target behind top wideout T.Y. Hilton. Over his last three outings, Inman has quietly racked up 13 catches on 15 targets for 176 yards and three scores. He'll look to extend his scoring streak to four games Saturday against a Kansas City defense that yielded an average of 273.4 passing yards per game this past season. That mark ranked 31st overall in the NFL.
We'll have to see if Inman ends up with an injury designation for Saturday's divisional-round playoff game versus the Chiefs, but we expect he'll end up suiting up for the 4:35 ET contest. Over his last three games, Inman has provided the Colts with a solid option pass-catching behind top wideout T.Y. Hilton, having racked up 13 catches on 15 targets for 176 yards and three TDs in that span.
Inman missed Tuesday's walkthrough due to shoulder and finger injuries.
Since he officially was listed with a shoulder issue on Dec. 5, Inman sat out the Colts' Week 14 matchup with the Texans but has suited up for the ensuing four contests. During that four-game run, he reached the end zone three times among 13 catches (on 16 targets) for 176 yards. Assuming he ditches the designation by Saturday's 4:35 p.m. ET kickoff in Kansas City, Inman will be looking to exploit a Chiefs defense that gave up 1.3 touchdowns per game to wideouts over the final six contests of the regular season.
