Raiders signed FB Jamize Olawale to a three-year, $6 million extension through 2018.
A fourth-year UDFA, Olawale has been a steady game day presence since 2013. He has 32 touches this season, easily a new career high. He's Pro Football Focus' No. 7 fullback through 13 weeks, but the competition isn't very fierce. The Raiders love locking up role-playing types. Tue, Dec 8, 2015 05:40:00 PM

Raiders signed RB Jamize Olawale off the Cowboys' practice squad.

It's an interesting move with Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson due back this week and Jeremy Stewart and Marcel Reece playing well. Olawale is a converted wide receiver and fullback, so the Raiders may envision him as a lead blocker. He showed well in preseason action.

Cowboys waived RB Jamize Olawale, CB Teddy Williams, S Eddie Whitley and DL Robert Callaway.

A converted wideout and fullback from the University of North Texas, Olawale impressed in preseason action only to get caught in the numbers crunch. Williams is the "Splendid Sprinter" who was a track star in college.

According to the Cowboys website, there is a "growing excitement" over undrafted rookie RB Jamize Olawale.

A converted wideout from the University of North Texas, Olawale has moved from lead blocker to tailback with the Cowboys over the past couple of months. With fullback size (6'0/230) and halfback moves and speed (4.53 forty), Olawale has stood out in the first two preseason games. He could push Phillip Tanner (hand surgery) for the final running back spot.
