The Chargers have signed wide receiver Seyi Ajirotutu twice in the past and there’s a chance for lucky number three with the wideout reportedly visiting with the team on Friday.
Michael Gehlken of UT San Diego reports that Ajirotutu will visit with the team. With Danario Alexander out for the season and Malcolm Floyd sidelined until at least the start of the regular season, it’s not too surprising to learn that the Chargers are in the market for wideout help.
Ajirotutu hooked up with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent in 2010 and got a lot of attention after he caught four passes for 111 yards and two touchdowns during a victory over the Texans in Week Nine of that season. He caught just four passes for the rest of the season, however, and didn’t make the team the next year. The Panthers claimed him off waivers and he played 14 games in Carolina in 2011, catching one pass and again failing to make the team the next year. The Chargers signed him in October and he wound up on injured reserve before the year was out because of a hand injury.
The experience Ajirotutu has with the Chargers offense doesn’t mean much with a new sheriff in town this season, but his prior working relationship with Philip Rivers could help him wind up back for a third tour of duty.
