    Raiders sign RB/FB Jamize Olawale; Marcel Reece dealing with injuries

    Jamize Olawale - RB - Raiders
    Raiders signed RB Jamize Olawale off the Cowboys' practice squad.
    It's an interesting move with Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson due back this week and Jeremy Stewart and Marcel Reece playing well. Olawale is a converted wide receiver and fullback, so the Raiders may envision him as a lead blocker. He showed well in preseason action.

    Marcel Reece - RB - Raiders
    Marcel Reece is dealing with hamstring and quadriceps injuries this week.
    The injuries explain Jeremy Stewart's increased role versus the Browns as well as the Raiders' Tuesday signing of RB/FB Jamize Olawale from the Cowboys practice squad. With Darren McFadden due back Thursday night, Reece can be dropped in 12-team leagues.

    Never know. Maybe he has shown something that we can use, as long as we don't cut anyone we like, there is no harm in it. If he doesn't work out then no loss.

    Exactly, besides i think what enticed Reggie is that he's a pretty good blocker & it can't hurt that he came from the same school as Reece where he was used in very similar type fashion. I think we should of signed defensive player instead but we'll see i guess, could very we'll turn out to be solid....or not lol

    A little more info on are new RB/FB... I like this kid he played for some great HS teams!
    http://www.silverandblackpride.com/2...wale?ref=yahoo

    The Raiders signed a new player today. His name is Jamize Olawale. He is an undrafted rookie of whom the Raiders signed off the Cowboys practice squad. The media spoke to him today in his first interview as an Oakland Raider.

    How fast did this whole thing come about?

    "Right after the game, I got that call, I was in the locker room, got the call from my agent. That was Sunday, Monday I was talking to both the Cowboys and the Raiders and came out here, flew out here."

    You had the option on that, did you weight it?

    "Yeah, and I'm a faith based man so I prayed about it all night, had my pastor pray about it, my wife pray about it and felt God was point me to Oakland to come back home."

    You're from this area, right?

    "Yeah, I was born in San Francisco. I lived both in San Francisco and I lived in Long Beach for a little bit."

    Must be nice to come back?

    "Yeah, it was lovely to come back, lovely."

    Were the Cowboys trying to keep you on their practice squad?

    "Naw, they were probably gonna move me up. They said today they were gonna move me up and today would have been too late, if I'd have waited until today. My agent said that he didn't know what they were trying to do. He said that first the Cowboys said that in the next four weeks they were gonna bump me up for sure. Then when I told them I'm gonna turn that down and come here, they said that they'll move me up today. They were just trying to play games I felt so I came out here.'

    What did the Raiders say?

    "They mostly spoke to my agent so I'm not 100% sure exactly what happened. But just know that they gave me the opportunity and I'm grateful of the opportunity, I feel blessed, and I'm take it an run with it as long as God allows me to."

    Are you a fullback, running back, what?

    "I'm whatever they need me to play."

    What do you prefer?

    "I love playing running back. I feel like I can do a lot of damage at running back. But I'm whatever they need me to play."

    They got a guy like you on the roster in Reece-former wide receiver, fullback, running back, you pattern your game on him?

    "Yeah, definitely. That's one thing my agent told me coming out ‘we're gonna market you as a Marcel Reece type player'. I respect him. I have a tremendous amount of respect for him. He's a great player from what I've seen on film."

    Same junior college?

    "Yeah. Same Junior college, yeah."

    Any chance you'll be active?

    "I don't know. That's up to coaches, I have no idea. I'll be ready to play."

    You play special teams?

    "Yeah, I'll be ready to play special teams, step in wherever they need me."

    You were a wide receiver at North Texas?

    "I played a year at wide receiver so it's not like it's been my whole career."

    Early though in high school?

    "H-Back, more fullback/H-Back and then played a year at receiver."

    You went to St Ignacious and then De LaSalle for a year?

    "Yeah, moved around to a bunch of different places. I went to SI my freshman year, De LaSalle my sophomore year and Long Beach Poly my Junior and Senior year."

    How did it work to go from De LaSalle to Poly?

    "The coaches didn't really like that but it was a good experience seeing both worlds and stuff like that."

    Which is the better team?

    "Poly has the better athletes. De LaSalle has the better coaches. Combine the two and you have the greatest team."

    Who would win?

    "Poly would probably win most likely."

    I can't believe how many damn injuries we've had this year. I've never seen anything like it. All our RB's get hurt, all our DB's get hurt, our OL get hurt, our WR's get hurt....


    WTF man!!!!


    Another reason why I can't be too pissed at DA and RM, this is insane

    It's not like we can just steal Adrian Peterson and all will be well...

    We have to sign who's available.

    Hopefully he can turn out to be another Marcel Reece type player. Who knows, maybe that way next year we can use one of them at FB and the other at TE? ray:

    Yep that would be great... The cowboys didn't want him to go so maybe there is something to this young man...

    he was groomed in college to be a 'reece-type player.' we signed him for his versatility, and because reggie doesn't have the luxury to pick up guys based on need- there's only so many more or less quality lb's/rb's out there. we're down to picking up the best available. he fits the mold, so we got him.
