The Raiders announced the addition of fullback/running back Jamize Olawale to the roster on Tuesday.
Olawale, who was signed off of the Dallas Cowboys practice squad, was originally signed as a non-drafted free agent rookie out of the University of North Texas.
Olawale hauled in eight receptions for 88 yards during his two years at North Texas, while also contributing to the team’s 2,112 rushing yards when he was a senior.
The San Francisco native has familiar faces on the Raiders team after playing ball at El Camino Junior College in Torrance, Calif., the junior college that current fullback Marcel Reece attended. Olawale also played with wide receiver Travionte Session and Long Beach Polytechnic High School. Session is currently on the Raiders practice squad.
