With all the injuries to the wide receivers on the San Diego Chargers roster, the team is scouring through the waiver wire to find some help. Malcom Floyd will miss the rest of the preseason with his knee injury and Danario Alexander is out for the season.

Philip Rivers was unable to complete one pass to his receivers yesterday. He kept looking to dump his passes off to his tight ends and running backs. Can’t blame that all on the receivers though, he had no time to get the ball off.

The Chargers could be looking to add a familiar face to the roster:

I’m told the #Chargers are bringing in WR Seyi Ajirotutu for a physical and a workout today.

Seyi Ajirotutu did well in his limited playing time with the Chargers and showed that he has good chemistry with Philip Rivers. Picking up Ajirotutu will not save the offense, but it could likely push Robert Meachem even deeper down the depth chart.

Currently the roster would have Malcom Floyd, Vincent Brown, Eddie Royal and Keenan Allen. At most, the Chargers would keep 2 more receivers on the roster. Mike Willie stood out last game and could be looking to fill that final spot. There isn’t really another receiver on the roster that has stood out.

UPDATE:

#Chargers have signed WR Seyi Ajirotutu, per source. This will be TuTu's third stint with the team. Has good chemistry with Rivers.
