In 2012, there were as many as 15 NFL teams interested in working out Olafioye during the option year window following his second season with B.C. The St. Louis Rams guaranteed him $85,000 in base salary in the first two years. But after agreeing to terms, Olafioye’s contract was disapproved four days later when he failed his physical.

On March 27, 2017, Olafioye was traded to the Montreal Alouettes in exchange for the rights to Canadian lineman David Foucault and Vincent Brown. With an estimated salary of $200,000 it was reported the Lions made the deal to free up some cap space. One week after being traded to Montreal, Olafioye and the Als agreed to a 3-year contract extension through the 2019 CFL season.
