Marcel Reece says aloha to the Pro Bowl

Marcel Reece AP

The Ravens are going to the Super Bowl.  Which means that their Pro Bowlers aren’t going to the Pro Bowl.

Which means that the AFC team will need replacements to running back Ray Rice, fullback Vonta Leach, guard Marshal Yanda, defensive tackle Haloti Ngata, safety Ed Reed, and kick returner Jacoby Jones.

The first replacement named comes courtesy of the Raiders, who have announced that fullback Marcel Reece will replace Leach.

Reece started 10 games at fullback and four at tailback for the Raiders in 2012, his fifth with the team.

    Reece is a beast. One of the few raiders that deserves a Pro Bowl roster spot, and this call up is probably the only highlight of the 2012 Raiders season.

    This years Pro Bowl is sponsored by McDonald’s. In comparison, even a regular season game gets Papa John’s.

    No offense to Leach ……

    But Marcel Reece did have two hell of a years making plays and laying himself out in a situation where he was not going to get any credit or self gratification.

    I hope that Marc Davis steps up an makes this a vacation for Reece and his family. They truly deserve it.

    What a great story. Reece was a wide receiver in college. Making a successful transition to fullback in the NFL is one thing… earning a Pro Bowl spot is just amazing. Congrats to Marcel!

    Cool, now I can watch it this year. He should have been named a starter in the first place.

    If anyone from the nation deserved it, I’d have to say him

    Congrats to Marcel!! This guy is a versatile playmaker and was one of the FEW bright spots and consistent performers on a dismal offense…
