One former member of the Pittsburgh Steelers apparently has his heart set on returning to the team, albeit in a "perfect world". 

Nose tackle Tyson Alualu, who played with the Steelers from 2017 to 2022, discussed his desire to return to the Steel City while making an appearance on "The Sick Podcast with Steelers Crazy". 

“I’m preparing like I will play this season,” Alualu said. “I can’t tell where it’s gonna be. But in a perfect world, I would love to be back with the Steelers and finish here. But I’ve been training and it felt normal.”

During his time with the Steelers, Alualu was the recipient of the Ed Block Courage Award winner for the Steelers after coming back from his serious injury. He was drafted with the 10th overall pick by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2010 NFL Draft, and would spend the first several season of his career there before joining the Steelers. 

Currently, he's a free agent. At 36 years of age, his best years on the field are certainly behind him, but that doesn't mean he wouldn't be able to pass along valuable wisdom and experience to the younger players on the team should GM Omar Khan decide to bring him back for one last go around. 

So far in his NFL career, he's racked up 416 tackles, 25 sacks, four forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries and 15 pass deflections.

Steelers fans, would you like to see him come back for another season in Pittsburgh?
