Jags Bring Back Tyson Alualu

The Jaguars came to terms with defensive end Tyson Alualu, per an NFL Network report. Find out why this is a very good move for the team.

The Jacksonville Jaguars came to terms with former 10th-overall pick, Tyson Alualu, according to an NFL Network report.

Alualu hasn't lived up to his draft status during his time in Jacksonville, but that doesn't mean that he's not a good player that makes the Jags defense better.

When Gus Bradley and company came to Jacksonville, they switched Alualu from the defensive tackle position which he struggled at and was ill suited for to the five-technique in the Jags current hybrid formation. Although it's likely that Alualu won't ever become an impact player worthy of a Top 10 selection, he's a valuable member of the defense as he served as a rotational backup to Red Bryant.

One of the most important parts of free agency is "self-evaluation" and the good teams in the NFL are able to retain their own talent. The Jaguars did that today.

The deal is reportedly for two years and it's likely at a very moderate amount of money.
