DL Tyson Alualu reportedly returning to Steelers, all due to COVID-19

PITTSBURGH — It’s another odd twist in what’s been a weird year already: defensive lineman Tyson Alualu is reportedly returning to the Steelers on a two-year deal after testing positive for COVID-19.

Alualu was initially leaving the team to sign with the Jacksonville Jaguars. According to the NFL Network, he couldn’t make the trip to Jacksonville after testing positive. Over his 10 day quarantine, he reportedly thought about the decision and ultimately decided to stay in Pittsburgh.
