Per NFL network. Back to Jags.
Didn’t see that coming - I really liked him.
Damn.

This is shitty for the Steelers. He was a great addition to the team the last few seasons.

It's a two-year, $6 million deal for DT Tyson Alualu with the #Jaguars, per source.

Gonna keep them playing on the edge.

Can't blame Tyson, between being in a state that is open and the tax laws it makes perfect sense to go make a few million at his age.

He was set to make 3.4 or 3.7 million. So Maybe something similar to what Alualu got gets it done.

Damn for that amount you have to think they didn't want him back. Seems cheap for a quality DT.
Howard Griffith had to resort to chop-blocking him during the 1997 AFC Championship Game. An incredulous Kirkland asked Griffith, “Why do you have to use cheap tactics like chop-blocking?” Griffith replied “Why do you have to be a 300-pound linebacker?”

That's about what they been paying him last 4 years.
Came from Jax with 2 year and $6 million
Then re-upped for 2 years and $5.75.

I guess at some point you need to get the young guys in there...Buggs and Davis.
Plus those 2 combined make $1.7

I liked Tyson.
Missed only 4 games in 11 years.
62 of 64 in Pittsburgh.

But he will be 34 before camp.

2 years 6.18 million. PA has the lowest income tax of any state that has a flat income tax. So not a big factor. Although it gets complicated when you start thinking about what states your road games will be taxed under...

I actually have some confidence in Buggs and Davis.

Their last bluegrass album wasn't bad. . . 8-)

I am a fan of Davis' feet he moves them quickly and reminds me of a dancing bear. I was also a fan of Buggs and Davis fighting over who was going to get snaps vs Cleveland in the last week of the regular season. A little spirit is good.

We needed to draft a defensive lineman pretty high anyway, both Cam and Tuitt are getting older and you have to feed that position group like any other. Also why I thought Chris Wormley would be resigned to a modest deal and kept in the fold.

Huge loss. Alualu was playing at an all-pro level until he got injured. Easily the best football of his career. And to lose him for so little money. Unexpected and disappointing.
