Raiders fullback Marcel Reece was set to be part of the Pro Bowl in Hawaii on January 31, but there’s going to need to be a replacement added to the roster.

The Raiders announced that Reece has been suspended four games for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs. Reece will not be able to practice with the team or play in Week 17 or during the first three weeks of the 2016 season and he will also be barred from taking part in the Pro Bowl as a result of the suspension.

Reece had 10 carries for 36 yards and 30 catches for 269 yards and three touchdowns for the Raiders this season. Reece has been in the Raiders organization since 2008 and is signed for next year with a base salary of $2.6 million.

The Raiders also have Jamize Olawale at fullback on the 53-man roster and can add a player to take Reece’s spot before closing out the season against the Chiefs in Week 17.

  1. a lot of players have bonuses in their contracts for being named to the pro bowl. Wonder if a suspension like this voids those.

    Send him to Toronto…..he can sell tickets to the opera or the only other thing to do in town, the circus. No pro sports teams there.
    ================================
    The Blue Jays have more rings than the Bills.

  3. Blue Jays!!! Are you kidding me? You mean the team that chocked this past year? Most people weren’t alive when they last won anything…..and the Maple Laughs? Let’s not go there, the Vietnam War was just getting started and there were only about three teams in the league. Someone had to win. Toronto is a joke!

  4. They’ve already pretty much phased him out of the offense. Somehow he ended up in someone’s doghouse.
    I’d say the chances are better than even that he serves his suspension on another team’s roster. He’ll be cut at the most advantageous time.
    The Pro Bowl nod is just another reason to dislike the Pro Bowl.
    He’s done nothing this year.

    Then most people weren’t alive for that 4 year run the Bills had at landing in the SB…..

    BTW – it was 6 NHL teams back then.

  6. I saw this on espn a little bit ago and I was reminded of why I dont watch that channel much anymore. While reporting this on live tv that idiot Mort was laughing the whole time. Classless, unprofessional and completely biased considering they were nothing but dead serious while discussing Manning and making every excuse possible for him. Now Reece failed a test and deserves to be suspended however these so-called reporters should maintain some semblance of professionalism

    Typical fade.

    He’s no Donald Stephenson, for sure. If he was a real man he would kill his girlfriend and then drive to the facility and blow his brains out in front of Del Rio.

  8. I’m disappointed with this news. I’ve always liked Reece since he came on the scene. He’s been a solid, versatile performer on the field and always appeared to be a leader in the locker room. It’s a letdown to know that he felt he needed to cheat. Please don’t cut this guy, Reggie; let him take his punishment, show contrition and move on past it.

  9. Ever notice how its never the ‘stars’ that get busted for PEDs??? Hmmmmm LMAO Marcel Reece played 1/4 of the offensive snaps this year.. And the Manning thing will disappear at the beginning of next season…
