Adeleke has appeared in 59 career CFL regular-season games, registering 164 tackles, four sacks, four interceptions, 11 pass knockdowns, two forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries, returning one 20 yards for a TD.
The former Carleton star has also appeared in nine career playoff games and played in the Grey Cup every year of his career, winning a championship with Calgary in 2018.
