Oluokun finished the 2023 regular season with 173 tackles (111 solo), 2.5 sacks, one interception and one forced fumble in 17 games.
The 28-year-old was unable to clear 180 tackles for the third straight season, but he still led the Jaguars in the category and ranked fourth in the NFL. Oluokun is entering the final year of the three-year, $45 million pact he signed with Jacksonville in 2022, and he should again be a top IDP linebacker in 2024.... See More ... See Less
Jaguars' Foye Oluokun: Relatively quiet day in win

In a game where Carolina posted only 15 rushing attempts, Oluokun had fewer chances than usual to tackle ball carriers, and he tied his season-low tackle total. Tennessee has leaned more heavily on the run this year, so Oluokun should see more opportunities against the Titans in Week 18.... See More ... See Less
Jaguars' Foye Oluokun: Logs double-digit tackles again
Oluokun posted 12 tackles (seven solo) and one quarterback hit Sunday in the Week 16 loss to Tampa Bay.
As has become a near-weekly occurrence, Oluokun led the Jaguars in stops Sunday, hitting the double-digit mark for the fourth time over the past five weeks and for the 10th time overall this season. The veteran linebacker has once again been an elite IDP option this season, as he ranks second in the NFL with 160 tackles, including 2.5 sacks, while adding an interception that was returned for a touchdown and a forced fumble. Despite Oluokun's big numbers, he's actually slightly below the pace that led to him recording 184 tackles last year, and he'll need to surpass Zaire Franklin (whom he currently trails by one stop) in order to finish as the league's leading tackler for the third straight campaign....
