Tyson Alualu’s Return Huge for Defense

Despite originally planning to play in Jacksonville next season, defensive tackle Tyson Alualu‘s change of heart led him back to the Pittsburgh Steelers on a two-year contract. While the signing didn’t create a lot of headlines, Alualu’s return is tremendous for the Steelers run defense going forward. Alualu was fantastic for the Steelers last season and helped ease the loss of Javon Hargrave‘s presence on the interior line.



Alualu’s skillset doesn’t speak volumes in regards to numbers on the stat sheet, but his ability to clog running lanes is undeniable and has exponential value especially in a division with various threats in their respective run games. While he isn’t a big name around the league, he is a big presence and without him there would be a massive difference for the rock solid Pittsburgh defense.
