Olawale agreed to an undisclosed contract with the Cowboys, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Olawale was mostly used as a blocker and on special teams, but still recorded two catches for 13 yards in 16 games last season. The 29-year-old should resume his role as the starting fullback for the Cowboys in 2019.
Olawale played seven offensive snaps during Saturday's playoff loss to the Rams. He finished up the regular season with two catches on four targets for 13 yards.
Analysis: Olawale played 114 offensive snaps during the regular season but did not log a single rushing attempt. The veteran fullback did most of his damage as a blocker on passing downs, while also playing a limited role on special teams. The 29-year-old is set to enter free agency this offseason.
Olawale logged 10 offensive snaps during Sunday's preseason game against the Cardinals.
Analysis: Olawale wasn't given a carry, but it was still good to see him out there after he hurt his arm in a recent practice. The North Texas product remains the only true fullback on the Cowboys' roster and has a solid chance of making the team's final 53-man roster.
Olawale exited Wednesday's practice with an injury to his right arm, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: The extent of Olawale's injury isn't clear, but initial reports indicated that the fullback may only be dealing with a stinger. We should know more sooner than later.
