Steelers Sign Free Agent DL Tyson Alualu

The Steelers signed the Jaguars’ former No.1 pick on Tuesday to a two-year deal

Tyson Alualu signed a two-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Tuesday, making the defensive lineman the third player in as many days to sign with the black and gold. The team signed running back Knile Davis and cornerback Coty Sensabaugh on Monday.

Alualu, 29, spent each of his first seven NFL seasons with the Jaguars, where the team’s former No.1 pick recorded 17.5 sacks and 259 tackles in 110 career games.

The 6’3, 295-pound veteran recorded 2.5 sacks and made 36 tackles in 14 games for the Jaguars in 2016.

Alualu will look to help fill the Steelers’ lack of depth behind starters Javon Hargrave, Stephon Tuitt, and Cameron Heyward, as Pittsburgh looks to solidify its defensive line for the 2017 season.
