Ajirotutu among five Panthers waiver claims

Seyi Ajirotutu,  Tramaine Brock AP

The Panthers turned over roughly 10% of their roster on Sunday.

Out: defensive Everette Brown (as we mentioned), safety Kevin Payne, guard Bryant Browning, wideout David Clowney, and defensive end Thomas Keiser.

The Panthers claimed five off waivers: wide receiver Seyi Ajirotutu (San Diego), defensive tackle Marcus Harrison (Bears), safety Stevie Brown (Oakland), defensive back Josh Thomas (Dallas), and defensive end George Selvie (Rams).

Former Chargers assistant and current Panthers coordinator Rob Chudzinski is stockpiling hard to spell former Chargers receivers.  Legedu Naanee earned a big role in camp.

    I’ll never forget needing a WR last year in fantasy due to conflicting byes. Picked up Seyi Ajiratuyu and he had a monster day. Pretty sure I pulled a muscle while patting myself on the back. Lol…

    Seyi Ajirotutu I knew once SD cut him we would pick him up,especially that Naanee came over also…. and Brown was waived I figured that would happen since Norwood stepped it up and camp and Brown just hasnt shown his pass rush ability and got outperformed in camp… I still wonder about Josh Thomas and Stevie Brown in are secondary…..

    When you are the worst team in the league. You are in the market for other teams trash.

    This is actually a halfway decent trash bin though. Seyi can’t spell his last name is a good pickup and I really like the pickups of Selvie, Thomas, Harrison and Brown.

    It’s an upgrade over the guys they dropped. That’s for sure. David Clowney is destined to lead some non NFL league in receiving in the future. He is one of the all time great preseason receivers in modern football history.

    Chudzinski may not be the league’s best offensive co-ordinator, but don’t challenge him to a game of Scrabble.

    Growing up ridiculed by other kids, “Chud” has a soft spot for players like Seyi Ajirotutu and Legadu Naanee.

    No offensive line help. Hmmm, more to come.

    Seyi Ajiratuyu was an undrafted free agent last year in San Diego. He was made descent by Rivers.
    Don’t expect much.

    I wish that “Chud” and Rivera would realize that these receivers from S.D. were only relevant because of the system and Phillip Rivers.

    Maybe they didn’t actually have any film on Stevie Brown. He’s terrible in the d-backfield. However, he does hustle, and maybe he’ll help out their special teams. The most accurate description of him is this: “covers like a linebacker, tackles like a cornerback”… not good!
