Contrary to some reports of the Jacksonville Jaguars and first round pick Tyson Alualu being close on a contract, a source close to the situation tells me that the $17 million guaranteed that has been reported is not the figure and would be a zero percent increase from the 2009 10th overall pick's contract.

 

In 2009, 10th overall pick Michael Crabtree signed a 6-year deal worth $17 million in guarantees. As of today, picks seven, eight, eleven, and thirteen have all signed contracts, so they should give a good starting point for the increase in Alualu's deal.

 

Given the significant increase in money from Rolando McClain's contract and the somewhat normal increase of Anthony Davis', we can expect the increase of Tyson Alualu's deal to be in the range of 13 to 18%. A source close to the situation tells me the deal should be for around $19-20.5 million guaranteed, which falls right in that range of 13-18%. The full $20.5 million would be a 20% increase, given the Jacksonville Jaguars history I would expect an increase around 15%, which would put the guaranteed money right at $19.55 million.
