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.
According to Pro Football Focus, Reese was the No. 2 fullback in the league last season and was effective in all three phases — rushing, receiving and blocking. Reese’s overall versatility was probably one of the most factors to him getting an extension, given that it’s becoming harder and harder for fullbacks around the league to keep their jobs.
We’ll have the contract details as soon as they’re available.
