The Oakland Raiders signed Jamize Olawale off of the Dallas Cowboy’s practice squad in 2012. While Olawale wasn’t a big part of the offense, he was a solid special teams player. He even led the team in special teams tackles with 14 in 2014 after coming in third the previous season with eight.
The accolades continue to pile up for the 26 year old NFL Defensive Player of the Year. Mack had another dominate season with 73 tackles, 11 sacks, five forced fumbles, and an interception he returned for a touchdown. After being the only player in history to be named All Pro at two positions (Linebacker and Defensive end) in 2015, Associated Press created the â€œEdge Rusher” position. Mack was promptly named All-Pro at this new position.
The Oakland Raiders signed Right Guard Gabe Jackson to a new 5-year deal. The extension will net the 25-year-old $56 million over the life of the deal with an average salary of slightly over $11 million. It’s the third highest for an NFL guard and will keep him with the team through the 2022 season.
