Following in the footsteps of Wide receiver Stephen Guidry and cornerback Maurice Canady, Olawale is now the third Cowboys player to opt-out of the upcoming season due to concerns from the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Olawale was technically the Cowboys starting fullback but saw far more action on the special teams side of things, where he was consistently one of the team's top contributors.

In two seasons, Olawale had just two catches for 13 yards and zero carries from his fullback spot but played in all 16 games in both years.

Olawale also tallied four total tackles from his special teams designations last season and has a total of 16 tackles during his time in Dallas.
