The Pittsburgh Steelers announced Friday that they’ve re-signed DT Tyson Alualu to a new two-year contract.
“It feels great,” said Alualu. “I am blessed to be able to come back and play for an organization that I love being around, from the top to the bottom. From management to my teammates. I am thankful to get something done and be with the group of guys that are chasing that trophy. I am just excited to get something done as soon as possible.”
Alualu, 31, is a former first-round pick of the Jaguars back in 2010. He played out his rookie contract with the Jaguars before returning to the team on a two-year, $6 million contract back in 2015.
Alualu eventually departed Jacksonville in 2017 and agreed to a two-year, $6 million contract with the Steelers.
In 2018, Alualu appeared in 15 games for the Steelers and recorded 22 tackles and no sacks. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 87 interior defender out of 112 qualifying players.
