- Ian Rapoport reports that Alualu will receive $6 million over the first two years of the agreement and $4.25 million fully guaranteed.
Jaguars GM David Caldwell told reporters last month that they wanted to retain Alualu and were hoping to have an agreement in place before the start of free agency, so this was clearly a priority for them.
Alualu, 27, was a surprising selection for the Jaguars back in 2010 when they used the No. 10 overall pick on him coming out of California.
Alualu has proven to be very durable over the course of his five-year career, as he’s yet to miss a single game.
In 2014, he recorded 30 tackles and two sacks over the course of 16 games. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 50 defensive end in a 4-3 system out of 59 qualifying players, which is due in large part to a poor rating as a pass rusher.
