Tyson Alualu and Jags verbally agree on deal

Posted on: August 1, 2010 10:56 pm
 
Tyson Alualu, the Jacksonville Jaguars' 10th overall NFL Draft selection, was one of seven remining unsigned first round draft picks (and one of the three left from the top 10).

But the Jags announced today that Alualu, who is currently in his home state of Hawaii, has verbally agreed to end his four-day holdout.

However, Alualu, according to his agent Rich Zuckerman, hasn't yet agreed to accept the deal, which seems fairly odd. Apparently, the Jags brought a new five-year deal to the rookie on Sunday, and that pushed up the pace of negotiations.
“By this morning there were 24 deals done and still three in front of us that weren’t done. Things happened very fast. This one made too much sense. We’re so happy to have him here," [GM Gene] Smith said.

“Once we got into pads, that’s when you’d really like them to be here and they’d like to be here. I know Tyson’s makeup. He’s got a lot of pride and wants to be with his teammates," he said.
Jacksonville.com has estimates for the deal are $28 million total with something along the lines of $18 million guaranteed.

Jack Del Rio and Smith expect Alualu to hop on a red-eye out of Hawaii and make Monday's practice in J-ville, which should mean he won't be grouchy at all. Fortunately, becoming a multi-millionaire should help curb any jet lag.
