On Monday, the Chargers continued their pace in free agency by bringing back a player who started to make waves a year ago.
The Bolts and wide receiver/special teamer Seyi Ajirotutu agreed to terms on a one-year deal that brings the 26-year old wide out back to San Diego for the 2014 season.
Ajirotutu has been with the team since 2012 and spent his first season in San Diego as well before being waived in early 2011. After spending a year in Carolina, the former Fresno State Bulldog ventured back to America’s Finest City and last season he began to show some potential when others were forced to go to the sidelines.
Ajirotutu’s most memorable moment in the 2013 season was catching a game-winning touchdown with 24 seconds left on the clock against arch rival Kansas City at Arrowhead Stadium.
Ajirotutu’s catch was arguably the starting point in the Bolts’ run to the postseason and certainty the biggest regular season moment for the team last year, aside from their stunning victory over Denver at Mile High on a Thursday night in December.
While they did lose out on James Jones, who went to rival Oakland yesterday on a three-year deal, the Chargers bringing Ajirotutu back does improve depth and signals that they felt they did not need him with their cast of receivers. With the receiving corps running five deep now, it’s hard to argue.
