Raiders fullback Marcel Reece has been named to the Pro Bowl, replacing Ravens fullback Vonta Leach.
With the Ravens advancing to the Super Bowl, Leach will not participate in the Pro Bowl, which will take place on Sunday. I’m sure he’s devastated.
Reece rushed for 271 yards and had 496 receiving yards on 52 catches, fourth in the league among all running backs.
Reece was previously named as an alternate, along with Sebastian Janikowski, when Pro Bowl rosters were first announced. He’s the only Raiders player scheduled to take part in the totally pointless and insignificant game. And for those looking for bragging rights in the cross-Bay football rivalry, that’s more than the 49ers will have (asterisk goes here).
So, see, Raiders fans? Something in January to look forward to.
