Fowler: Steelers Sign DL Tyson Alualu To Two Year Deal

The Pittsburgh Steelers continue to make noise in free agency, signing DL Tyson Alualu to a two year deal per ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

The 10th overall pick of the 2010 draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars, he never found that type of success in the NFL but was a consistent starter, starting 88 games for the Jaguars. Last season, he recorded 36 tackles and 2.5 sacks across ten starts.

He’ll serve as a three tech pass rusher for the Steelers, something they were lacking behind Cam Heyward and Stephon Tuitt. This should end any chance Ricardo Mathews had of re-signing with the team. Alualu will slide in with L.T. Walton, who is stout against the run but not much of a pass rusher, to give the Steelers great depth along the defensive line along with an awesome starting three-man front.

Look for a full report on Alualu in the morning.
