Raiders reach three-year contract extension with Marcel Reece

Raiders fullback Marcel Reece, who has become a key contributor in the offense in recent seasons, has signed a three-year contract extension with the club, the team said Friday.

The 28-year-old Reece entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2008. After a brief stop with Miami, he landed with Oakland. For most of the 2008 and 2009 seasons, he was on the Raiders’ practice squad. In 2010, he worked his way onto the Raiders’ roster, and he has started 31 regular-season games since.

Reece showed unique versatility in 2012, catching 52 passes for 496 yards and rushing for 271 yards on 59 carries. He even received regular work at tailback for a time because of injuries at the position.

In a statement released by the club, Reece expressed loyalty to the Raiders’ organization, late owner Al Davis and current owner Mark Davis.

“It’s another step to my goal — being a Raider for life,” Reece said. “I plan on playing for as long as God will allow me to. If it’s for a lot longer, I want it all to be with the Raiders.

“Al Davis believed in me more than I did myself at times, and it meant a lot to me. I take it to heart and I take it seriously. Mark Davis has loved me the same. I love the organization and I love the Raiders family.”

    Nice! Reece can be our RB if need be. Hopefully he’ll have another big year. Pro Bowl last year. Im glad we got him done now we gotta get DMC n Veldeer inked.

    Awesome, now lets start using him more, the guy is a major mismatch no matter who they play.

    Congrats! Well deserved too.
    Now, can we actually start using him?
    What if he blocks for Prior on those runs!

    People have been really hard in forums on Reggie and Dennis, but they have been working at a distinct disadvantage these first two years, and I think they are trying to build a team the right way, with the right type of guys. Not saying they will be successful, but the team will be in better shape at the end of the year than it was when they took over, FOR LONG-TERM SUCCESS. Don’t bring up the 8-8 with Hue. That team went 1-4 down the stretch, and 4-6 with the QB Hue mortgaged the future for.

    Also, it is encouraging to see guys who could possibly go to better places bypass free agency to re-sign with the team.

    I wish we, the Bills, had a FB like this guy.

    We love you too, big fella. Just win, baby.

    When you watched Hard Knocks with the Bengals this year…did you also think Hue Jackson comes across as pretending to know what to do?

    Heard that comment.

    I didnt like him @Oak, nor did the media.

    Worst team in the NFL … except for the Bucs.

    I would to have Reece on the Browns. He’s versatile, talented and has a lot of tread left on his tires due to being used sparingly. Plus, it sounds like he has his head on straight. Good move by the Raiders.

    (Tear) ” No I’m not getting choked up. Something flew in my eye! Just leave me alone!”
    Seriously though, I love this guy. Great player and an even better human being. Go Raiders!

    More proof this organization is continuing in the right direction. Locking up key guys early that have the work ethic, right attitude, and desire to achieve more. Only @ $55 Million more to spend next year on players!

    RAIDER NATION!!!!!!!

    same here.

    I don’t care what team you are a fan of, to hear of a player’s attitude being like this makes me glad to be a fan of football. You Raiders’ fans have got a good one on your team.

    Reece is Beast… And he is worth every penny.

  18. anhdazman says: Sep 14, 2013 3:00 AM

    Oakland is still not using Reece to his full potential. Pro-Bowl FB who was a WR in college. He should be isolated against LBs more often. Need to get him into one on one match ups so he can take advantage of that LB in space. He has incredible hands for a FB. Use this to our advantage!

    Too bad….this guy deserves to play for a better team.

  20. frankiemontana says: Sep 14, 2013 10:10 AM

    and we should be hearing from humbolt in 3,2,1

    smart signing by the Raiders.He’s arguably their most valuable offensive asset.
