03:46 PM ET 05.26 | Jacksonville Jaguars defensive tackle Tyson Alualu has struggled in his first three seasons in the league since being a surprise selection with the No. 10 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. Much of the reason for his mediocre play in his first two seasons was a knee injury that required microfracture surgery last offseason. In the Jaguars' new defensive scheme, Alualu is expected to play defensive end, rather than defensive tackle, to take pressure of his knee, according to National Football Post.

I guess every team in the NFL has those gloves now... they were cool, for like a minute.
