Bio

The Chargers retained one of their top special teams performers, and a wide receiver with a knack for big plays, when they re-signed Ajirotutu in March.

Ajirotutu led the Chargers in special teams tackles in 2013. He also made one of the team’s biggest offensive plays of the season, hauling in a game-winning 26-yard touchdown pass with 24 seconds left in the game to cap a 41-38 win over the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium on Nov. 24.

A native of El Dorado Hills, California, Ajirotutu was an All-Western Athletic Conference player at Fresno State, where he was a teammate and close friend of Chargers running back Ryan Mathews. To this day, the two are almost inseparable, even as their NFL careers have taken them down slightly different paths. Both joined the Chargers in 2010 after they’d been college roommates at FSU. They also both hired the same agent and they trained together in their pre-draft workouts. Even though Mathews was a first-round pick and Ajirotutu joined the Chargers as an undrafted rookie, the latter made a huge impact during an important road game in Houston during his rookie season. He began the season on the team’s practice squad, but after just seven weeks, he was signed to the active roster when injuries ravaged the team’s depth at the position. Just three weeks later he was thrust into the rotation in the game against the Texans and he delivered an incredible 111-yard, two-touchdown performance that included the game-winning 28-yard touchdown catch in the fourth quarter.

Ajirotutu’s father, Leke, was born in Nigeria. His name is pronounced Shay-EE Ah-JEER-uh-too-too, which means “God has done this” when translated to English. An electrical engineer, Leke and Seyi’s mother, Wilma, pushed all their children to excel in both athletics and academics. Ajirotutu earned a degree in finance from Fresno State and interned with Northwestern Mutual while in college and with the Pollakov Financial Group during the early part of his career in San Diego. His sister, Yemi, received her undergraduate degree from Stanford and graduated from UCLA’s medical school, while his younger brother, Toyin, is a law school graduate.

Ajirotutu and wife, Autumn, were married in 2012.
