Cowboys To Re-Sign FB Jamize Olawale

Veteran fullback Jamize Olawale will have another opportunity in Dallas. The 2018 trade acquisition agreed to a new Cowboys deal, according to Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News (on Twitter).

This agreement is worth $5.4MM over three years, per Machota, who adds $2.8MM is guaranteed. Olawale finished his first season with the Cowboys, playing 132 snaps and on special teams. A $1.8MM signing bonus is including in this pact, Calvin Watkins of The Athletic tweets.

The Raiders traded Olawale to the Cowboys nearly a year ago. The soon-to-be 30-year-old blocking back was not used as a ball-carrier, which was the case sparingly in Oakland. But he’ll nonetheless stay a part of Dallas’ backfield in 2019.

The eighth-year UDFA’s contract falls in line with the non-Kyle Juszczyk wing of this position, Olawale’s per-year salary placing him in the top five among fullbacks. He had previously played out a three-year extension, which he signed as a Raider near the end of the 2015 season.
