Typically, the NFL Pro Bowl is a relaxed game with no blitzing, little effort and a whole lot of scoring. For players, it’s a free trip to Hawaii with a participation bonus added in at the end. But one player out on the field on Sunday will be trying his hardest. Oakland Raiders fullback Marcel Reece wants to win the Pro Bowl MVP because he wants the free car that comes along with it. “I want the car,” Reece said, according to Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle. “I’m going to win the car. I don’t care what kind of car it is, it could be a Hot Wheel, I want it. I am going to do everything I can to win it.” The University of Washington product had the best season of his career in 2012. The fullback rushed for 271 yards on 59 carries and added 52 receptions for 496 yards and one touchdown. He received an increased role in the offense when running back Darren McFadden went down with an injury midway through the season. This is Reece’s first career Pro Bowl. He went undrafted in 2008, but has carved out a role as the most productive fullback in football the past three seasons. From what we can tell, a fullback has never won the award. Wide receiver Brandon Marshall won the MVP, and the car, last year.
