Another Dallas Cowboys player has opted out of the 2020 season.
According to a NFL Network, fullback Jamize Olawale has decided to sit out of the upcoming NFL year due to concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic. He joins Maurice Canady and Stephen Guidry as the third Cowboy to opt out of the upcoming year.
Olawale will receive a $150,000 stipend because he’s opting out on a voluntary basis.
Olawale, 31, has played for the Cowboys since 2018, but saw a limited role due to the offensive scheme. His presence will be missed primarily on special teams, where he ranked fifth on the unit with five tackles.
In addition to these three opt outs, the Cowboys have also placed wide receiver Jon’Vea Johnson and cornerback Saivion Smith on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
