Marcel Reece will sign a contract extension at some point before Monday night’s regular-season opener against the San Diego Chargers, acccording to Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports.
Reece was scheduled to make $540,000 this season. He missed some of the Raiders’ offseason workouts while waiting to sign his exclusive rights tender, eventually signing and reporting.
A Pro Bowl alternate at fullback last season despite missing four games due to injury, Reece caught 27 passes for 301 yards. With his background as a University of Washington wide receiver, Reece, 6-foot-2, 250 pounds, presents the most difficult matchup problems of any player at his position in the NFL.
There has been no confirmation from the Raiders.
