Jacksonville Signs DT Tyson Alualu

Associated Press - [Full Article]

The Jacksonville Jaguars and first-round draft pick Tyson Alualu have agreed on a five-year contract, getting the California defensive tackle on his way to camp after a four-day holdout.

Alualu’s deal got done before practice Sunday night. It includes more than $17 million guaranteed.

Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio said Alualu was planning to take a redeye flight from Hawaii and be at training camp Monday night.

Jacksonville selected Alualu with the 10th pick in April’s draft, hoping the 304-pound lineman will bolster a defense that had a league-worst 14 sacks last season.
