Raiders FB Marcel Reece Caves In, Signs Tender
Monday afternoon Raiders re-signed exclusive rights free agent FB Marcel Reece to a one-year, $540,000 contract. He will be eligible to become a restricted free agency in 2013.
Raiders are in the middle of OTA's and one of their main ingredient free agents were a no show. After being absent from OTA's this past month searching for a more lucrative long-term deal, Reece finally gave up and signed his tender offer.
He's easily the most athletically dominate lead blocker in the NFL, Reece topped all fullbacks in receiving (301) and rushing (112) yards last season. He excels best in the passing game and is one of the most underrated players of the game.
Expect Reece to see more action in the new regime offense since Michael Bush is out the picture and now with the Chicago Bears.
