Steelers sign Tyson Alualu of Jaguars to improve pass rush

PITTSBURGH (AP) Tyson Alualu spent seven years in Jacksonville trying to help revive a struggling franchise while simultaneously trying to live up to his draft pedigree.

Neither really happened. Alualu, the 10th overall pick in the 2010 draft, never registered more than 3+ sacks in a season. The Jaguars never won more than eight games in a season.

No wonder Alualu is eager for a fresh start in Pittsburgh. The Steelers signed the 29-year-old defensive lineman to a two-year deal on Tuesday to provide depth and experience behind starting ends Cameron Heyward and Stephon Tuitt and nose tackle Javon Hargrave.
