Chargers taking another look at Seyi Ajirotutu

Chiefs Chargers Football AP

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.

    Apparently the Chargers offense has a shortage of vowels.

    I really hope the pats pick up Alexander on a waiver claim the way they did with Ballard. this guy is a beast on the rare occasions he’s been in the field and is easily worth the ir designation

    That’s easy for you to say.

    What do you know? I’m taking a first look, how ironic.

    I expected this and heartily endorse bringing Tutu back to San Diego. Tutu has chemistry with Philip, and he has a big body and will fight for the ball.

    Would you know we’re on San Diego Chargers Super Bowl Express? Allll aboooard the traaaainnn!!

    I hope he makes it. I just like hearing the announcers stumble over players names.

    I mean, you’d think you’d look into that before the game, right?

    That Texans pass D was one of the worst in NFL history

  12. davemishsr says: Aug 16, 2013 5:06 PM

    With the exception of one game this guy has done absolutely nothing in the NFL. I mean nothing as nada, zip, zilch, zero, Zee ya later! I cannot believe we are actually higher on this kid than either Brandon Lloyd or Laurent Robinson.

    joetoronto:

    You do realize (likely, you don’t) that “your” Raiders are dead-last in the league, in terms of gross revenue. Right? They have the lowest ticket prices, and have closed off more and more sections of the stadium, JUST to avoid constant blackouts.

    The 49ers (the Bay Area’s actual team) has a brand new stadium on the way, and the Raiders are such a bad team that they weren’t allowed to be a part of that.

    So…that brings us to LA. You better hope that the Chargers don’t move there (which they won’t) because that would entirely close the door on the Raiders being allowed to make that move. Then again, Al Davis Jr. is strapped, and the team is already leveraged up to the top of the majority he owns, so they would never even be able to afford to pay the massive premium that the other 31-owners would require, to relocate to LA.

    So, “your” Raiders are pretty much screwed, any way you look at it.
