I'm told the #Chargers are bringing in WR Seyi Ajirotutu for a physical and a workout today.— Annie Heilbrunn (@annieheilbrunn) August 16, 2013
BFTB commenter Annie gets credit for this one.
Seyi Ajirotutu isn't that different from Danario Alexander, and he has always had solid chemistry with Philip Rivers, so this is an excellent move for the depth that the San Diego Chargers need currently.
The fact that they're bringing him in for the physical and workout lead me to believe they're about to sign him. After all, it's training camp. It's not as if they need to cut someone to make room for him, and having him on the team for the next few weeks costs next to nothing. The only thing you risk by signing him is that he'll be taking snaps away from other guys, but considering how injury-prone they all are that might not be a bad thing.
At some point it's going to get awkward that the Chargers are the only team that thinks that Ajirotutu is any good, right? I mean, I thought that would stop once A.J. Smith left, but here comes Tutu again. This feels like a Rivers request that Tom Telesco is fulfilling because why not? After all, the physical should tell them that Seyi has two very healthy ACLs.
#Chargers have signed WR Seyi Ajirotutu, per source. This will be TuTu's third stint with the team. Has good chemistry with Rivers.— Annie Heilbrunn (@annieheilbrunn) August 16, 2013
