2014 NFL Free Agency: San Diego Chargers re-sign Seyi Ajirotutu


The San Diego Chargers have been busy in free agency, mostly trying to bring back some of their own players after having a successful season in 2013 that included a first round playoff victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.

On Monday, the Chargers brought another one of their own free agents back into the fold, re-signing wide receiver Seyi Ajirotutu.

Ajirotutu went undrafted out of Fresno State in 2010, but signed with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent. After a surprising rookie season that included 13 receptions for 262 yards and two touchdowns, Ajirotutu was cut just prior to the 2011 season. He was claimed by the Carolina Panthers, but made just one catch and  was released a year later. He was signed by the Chargers midway through the 2012 season, but wound up on injured reserve. The Chargers re-signed Ajirotutu in August.

Ajirotutu, a special teams standout, made three catches for 64 yards and a touchdown in 14 games last season.

    When I look at Tutu, I see a young WR that was never really given an opportunity to prove what he could do. Knowing “who” his former HC was before Mike McCoy, it’s easy to see why he was not developed or had a chance to make a catch. Seeing his QB was usually on the turf before he go to his 4th step.
    If you want to compete, it’s best to focus on re-signing your own players, if for no other reason than familiarity with your system.
