The day after the San Diego Chargers were embarrassed once again against the Browns, they make moves. These moves, unfortunately, are not what many wanted.

Norv Turner is still coaching the team, everyone. 

San Diego did make roster moves Monday (per Pro Football Talk). Richard Goodman, who was injured on the opening kickoff Sunday, was placed on injured reserve. After releasing Micheal Spurlock a few weeks ago in order to make room for Chris Carr, Richard Goodman became the Chargers' fourth receiver. Danario Alexander was signed last week to fill in for an injured Eddie Royal. 

With only four healthy wide receivers on the roster, three of which were not on the team last year, the Chargers needed to make an addition. In what could be the smartest move of the season, San Diego signs Seyi Ajirotutu.

Seyi Ajirotutu played for the Chargers in 2010 as an undrafted rookie, but was not kept the following season. He produced immensely when San Diego had a banged-up receiving core. He had 13 receptions for 262 yards, including two touchdowns. His 20.2 yards-per-catch average is exactly what the Chargers need now. Since playing for the Chargers, Ajirotutu has only one reception for four yards. 

Philip Rivers gets a new receiver that he's familiar with. He's a vertical threat at 6'3'' and will help the Chargers as soon as he's needed to. Another reason Seyi Ajirotutu was brought back to San Diego was because Vincent Brown has not progressed as fast as first thought.
