Seyi Ajirotutu caught one pass for 26 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 12 win at Kansas City.

With Keenan Allen's knee a non-issue, Ajirotutu barely played. But he did make the most of his one target, hauling it in with 31 seconds left to give the Chargers an impressive and epic win. It will almost certainly go down as the biggest play of Ajirotutu's season. He remains the No. 4 wideout on a team with two excellent tight ends as well.

Seyi Ajirotutu caught two passes for 38 yards in Sunday's Week 11 loss at Miami.

When Keenan Allen (knee) went down in the fourth quarter, Ajirotutu became an every-down player. He had two big catches on the failed final drive. Ajirotutu is a player for extreme deep leaguers to monitor as we await word on the severity of Allen's injury.

Chargers WR Seyi Ajirotutu left Saturday's preseason game with a hip pointer.

Ajirotutu had one catch for 13 yards and was targeted three times before exiting. He was just signed by the Chargers last week and is competing for a roster spot behind Eddie Royal and Keenan Allen. Ajirotutu should be considered day to day.

Chargers agreed to terms with WR Seyi Ajirotutu.

Ajirotutu was signed following a workout on Friday. He spent most of 2012 with the Chargers and will provide veteran depth after injuries to Danario Alexander and Malcom Floyd.

The Chargers are working out free agent WR Seyi Ajirotutu on Friday.

The onetime fantasy hero spent most of 2012 on the Chargers' roster, but wasn't picked up in the spring. Ajirotutu knows Philip Rivers, of course, and would provide depth after the injuries to Danario Alexander and Malcom Floyd.

Chargers placed WR Seyi Ajirotutu (hand) and C David Molk (thumb) on season-ending injured reserve.

Ajirotutu had his hand in a cast after last week's game. He had three catches for 45 yards in three games with the Chargers. Michael Spurlock will likely see increased snaps, though he's far from a fantasy option. A special teamer and extra blocker in jumbo packages, Molk suffered a thumb injury in Week 13.

Chargers WR Seyi Ajirotutu left the stadium with his right hand in a cast after Sunday's loss to the Bengals.

Ajirotutu didn't see a single target in Week 13. No higher than fourth on the depth chart, he will be a candidate for injured reserve if the hand is broken.

Seyi Ajirotutu caught one pass for 28 yards in his Week 9 Chargers debut.

Ajirotutu was targeted just the one time and capitalized on it with a slick 28-yard third-down diving catch on the opening series. He was only forced into minimal action due to Robert Meachem and Eddie Royal being out with hamstring injuries. Ajirotutu will go back to fourth or fifth receiver duties in Week 10.

Chargers signed WR Seyi Ajirotutu, formerly of the Panthers.

25-year-old Ajirotutu was among the Panthers' final cuts in late August. He began his career in San Diego and knows Norv Turner's offense. Ajirotutu will serve as a fourth or fifth receiver, replacing injured Richard Goodman.

Panthers waived WR Seyi Ajirotutu, WR Jared Green, OT Matt Reynolds, CB R.J. Stanford and LB David Nixon.

Ajirotutu entered camp in need of a big preseason, but instead caught just two passes for 18 yards across Carolina's four exhibition tilts. It bodes poorly for Ajirotutu's future that he couldn't carve out a role in the Panthers' thin receiver corps.
Fri, Aug 31, 2012 02:33:00 PM

According to the Charlotte Observer, Seyi Ajirotutu is "making himself a part" of the competition for the Panthers' No. 2 receiver job.

This is the same Ajirotutu who caught one pass in 14 games last season. Barring an exceptionally poor preseason, Brandon LaFell should have Carolina's No. 2 job locked down, leaving Ajirotutu to compete with David Gettis and Louis Murphy for No. 3 duties. It would be surprising if Ajirotutu ended up higher than fourth or fifth on the depth chart.
Mon, Jul 30, 2012 07:12:00 PM

Panthers claimed WR Seyi Ajirotutu off waivers from the Chargers.

No surprise here. HC Ron Rivera and OC Rob Chudzinski are collecting former Chargers. Ajirotutu will reunite with Legedu Naanee as Carolina's fifth receiver. He offers more promise as a deep threat than David Clowney, who was released Sunday.
Sun, Sep 4, 2011 02:52:00 PM

Chargers waived WR Seyi Ajirotutu, LB Kevin Bentley, RB Isaac Odim, S Quinton Teal, and CB Ramon Broadway.

Broadway, Odim, and Ajirotutu are all practice squad candidates. Ajirotutu would be a nice fourth receiver elsewhere after flashing in his rookie season, but he couldn't crack a deep Chargers wideout corps without much special teams value. The Bolts kept Kassim Osgood successor Richard Goodman instead.
Sat, Sep 3, 2011 12:57:00 PM

Seyi Ajirotutu appears to be a "lock" to make the Chargers' final roster this year.

Ajirotutu is opening eyes with his coverage skills on kickoffs, and that's where he'll make his biggest impact in 2011. A one-week fantasy star last year, Ajirotutu will likely enter the season fifth on the depth chart at receiver.
