The Oakland Raiders have rewarded fullback Marcel Reece with a three-year contract extension.
Reece, 28, is a former undrafted free agent from the University of Washington.
Last season, Reece rushed for 271 yards and caught 52 passes for 496 yards.
He has played tailback when needed.
“It’s another step to my goal — being a Raider for life,” Reece saidin a statement. “I plan on playing for as long as God will allow me to. If it’s for a lot longer, I want it all to be with the Raiders.
“Al Davis believed in me more than I did myself at times, and it meant a lot to me. I take it to heart and I take it seriously. Mark Davis has loved me the same. I love the organization and I love the Raiders family.”
