PLAYERS: Marcel Reece
TEAMS: Oakland Raiders
The Oakland Raiders have announced that they’ve signed FB Marcel Reece a three-year contract extension. Reece, 28, was in the final year of his contract and is set to make $1.423 million for the 2013 season. This new deal will keep him under team control through the 2016 season.

A New Era for the Oakland Raiders Run Defense?

  The biggest weakness for the Oakland Raiders over the last dreadful decade has been their run defense. Reggie McKenzie hired Dennis Allen as the Raiders first defensive minded head coach since John Madden because of Allen’s hybrid defensive schemes. Last year’s Raiders defense was once again atrocious which is why the Raiders have brought in 9 new starters on defense. While...

Hello again Raider Nation. Week 2 is upon us and with it comes another interesting slate of AFC West matchups.

Sebastian Janikowski denies that he roots against the A's

Unless their bullpen has anything to do with it, the A’s appear on track for a second consecutive year of October baseball. That’s good news for A’s fans. Not so much for Sebastian Janikowski, aka Grumpy McGrumperson. You see, Bud Selig isn’t the only one who’s hardly thrilled when the A’s make the playoffs. That’s because Janikowski allegedly hopes they never make...

Oakland Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski has kicked off the infield dirt at the Coliseum for so long now that it's become almost second nature to him. That's why Janikowski was surprised - and a bit angry - to read a published report saying he annually roots for the Oakland Athletics to miss the playoffs so the dirt can be replaced with sod. The Raiders are the only...

The Oakland Raiders' gameplan vs the Jacksonville Jaguars

The Raiders put up a great fight versus the Jacksonville Jaguars and the offense looked light years ahead of last year’s poorly run unit. The defense also did better than expected against Andrew Luck and a Colts offense that looks like it can score some points when it’s in sync. This week may be the only time this season that the Raiders are favored but the game comes against...
