Raiders make it official _ Reece signs extension

Fullback Marcel Reece has signed a contract extension to remain with the Raiders beyond the 2012 season, the club announced Tuesday.

Terms and length of the deal which was first reported by CBS Sports Monday were not disclosed.

Reece was a Pro Bowl alternate fullback in 2011 despite missing four games due to injury. He caught 27 passes for 310 yards and is the most versatile player at his position.

A wide receiver in college at Washington, Reece, 6-foot-2, 250 pounds, can go in motion or be split as a wide receiver, as he did on occasion in Oakland’s season-opening 22-14 loss to the San Diego Chargers.

Reece, who caught two passes for 24 yards against San Diego, was scheduled to make $540,000 this season. An exclusive rights free agent, Reece did not immediately sign his tender and missed some time in the offseason.

With no leverage, Reece eventually reported in the hopes the Raiders would bargain in good faith and work toward a new deal.

    Phillip had all day to pass. Not the secondary’s fault. I’m surprised he didn’t shred us apart last night.

    How the hell did we score a TD?
    I left pissed off w/ about 6min left in the game?

    =======================================

    CP went no-huddle, started ignoring Knapp’s playcalling, drove us down the field and found Streater in the endzone.

  • ohioraider

    Said it once and I’ll say it a thousand times: teams needing to change the culture, that have forgotten how to win, need to take preseason games seriously. This trend toward over caution is bs. Just look at what happened to the Browns.

    34 yrds is not running the ball well.

    Yeah but wasn’t that because of the 25 yards that Taiwan lost?
    Oh well…

  • http://raiders.com Seymour Bush

    That sucked. The margin for wins in the NFL is RAZOR thin. You cannot make mistakes like we all saw yesterday and expect to win in this league. SD basically played a flawless game. The Raiders played like, well, the Raiders.

    This is an interesting observation. How many lackluster offensive performances do you think it takes before CP starts calling his own plays? He’s experienced enough to pull it off.

    How is it and why is it that teams such as the Broncos can completely transform from 3rd tier losers to top flight contenders in less than 6 months??

    The reason is, those orgs have staff and personnel who know the game on a professional level.

    For the past 10 yrs the Raiders have lacked such personnel and are still lacking such personnel.

    The Raiders failed on the most basic levels. So many posters here claimed Knapp was a bad choice and a loser: they were correct. Many of the same posters claimed the Raiders should have continued where they left off on offense last yr, while seeking to narrow and improve it. Instead, they said we allowed a loser, Knapp, to come in with a new offense, blocking schemes, and playbook.

    Those posters were correct.

    Why Reggie and Mark Davis didn’t understand the obvious, see what was right before their eyes, I’ll never know.

    We will have our azzes handed to us by Miami on Sunday, as the fins have done now for many yrs, inexplicably. We will definitely lose to the Steelers, who will grind us up like cheap meat. We’ll then be 0/3 and again be out of contention.

    The quick and logical fix of firing Knapp and substituting in Al Saunders will never be taken, as will firing of the malingerers Moore and Ford will never be considered.

    All in all, the taint of AD lingers.

    In other words, we can’t do anything right.

    couldn’t have said it better!

    Raiders suck !!! CP3 is a lead footed idiot. I laugh at you jerks thinking the Raiders will ever beat the Broncos and Manning. Fire CP3 idiot tomorrow ??

    A few weeks ago I mentioned here that the 49′ers would beat the Raiders time and again and was practically driven off the blog. For all of you who attacked me: F off. The 9′ers will beat this crappy team and the moron Knapp 100 out of 100 times.

    Go 9′ers and Denver !

  • RaidersOne

    If Palmer was an elite QB do you think he would bahhhh like a sheep in front of the pathetic Knapp?

    Can’t see Big Ben or Manning accepting such insubstantial performance.

    I would have told Knapp to “F off” shut off the earphone and ran the offense as I saw fit.

    That’s too much to expect from the loser CP3.

  • JohnnyRaider

    I want on #43 petition to fire Knapp. I agree with Just Win Baby as to why the regular center was not used to do the long snaps, especially after the disaster from Goethel. Has anyone noticed in preseason how our young front D line guys had put pressure on the QB without the presence of TK and Seymore. I was against bringing back both TK and Seymore. We could have saved 7.5 million on Seymore and don’t know how much on TK. This money saved could have gotten us some quality players like a decent running back, TE, and maybe CB Tracy Porter. No excuse for Seymore not getting in and sacking Rivers when SD had a rookie LT. For 15 million, I do not see Seymore putting in any effort, he is just collecting a check, what do you guys think?

  • 8RaiderReign8

    I’ll I will say is no team in the NFL will win with four turnovers against the San Diego Chargers.

    I don’t like what Palmer said in this interview.

    He’s saying the reason we didn’t do much on offense is becuz SD played deep and didn’t wanna give up the big play etc.

    *************************
    CP3 was being polite. Everytime I could see coverages the recievers were not open! We need a true #1 Reciever that can beat a double team and free up DHB into single coverage. It would also be nice to have a TE that is viewed as a reasonable threat. You can not just give it to DMC and hope for the best – I do blame Knapp for that.

    I get that your frustrated but simply bringing in Saunders is not going to cure this. Finally it is not like we were the NE Patriots last year on offense. We were above average but by no means elite and inconsistent to boot.

    As for some of these posts??? Some are so stupid I am thinking of not coming on here anymore. Some of them must just be trolling they are so dumb (aka Oakforshow) Take this quote for instance: “The quick and logical fix of firing Knapp and substituting in Al Saunders will never be taken, as will firing of the malingerers Moore and Ford will never be considered.” So we fire an overachieving 5th round pick just coming off an injury or you “fire” a guy that single handlingly beat a couple of teams in the last couple of years with awesome catches and special team returns. Those two would not even get by Indy on waivers!!! Yea that will fix it. I am sorry, fire your self as a poster.

    And Palmer will never be a WCO QB (again, I agree)
    but come on guys…
    As of right now…none of this, im my opinion is Reggie’s fault! Well, except letting DA hire KNapp…

  • SaintKaufman

    Damn, you guys are brutal. It’s either perfection or hit the road. I personally have NO problems with they way the game was called on offense. Palmer pushed the ball down the field when he had time and got the ball in to our best playmakers hands as often as possible.

    We lost. 0-1. 1 game out of 1st place.

    Oh, and RaidersOne is a first class Dbag!

  • inonewordraider

    lotta ppl on knapp but the botched punts, the taiwan 25 yard loss, the kelly penalties giving them first downs and the streater fumble? I say let’s see knapps o when cp has a bailout/deep threat in moore

  • RaidersOne

    DJ Johnny,

    And what’s your point DJ ???? At least when I am so pissed off, upset and frustrated after 28 yrs of losing I will say something radical.

    While you on the other hand will be mellow and la-de-da “whatever man.”

    What is wrong with respecting talent and organizational capability in the 49′ers and Broncos that have transformed their organizations almost miraculously in a very short time period?

    We should study it carefully, use the information, as any capable manager would.

    Go spin your records dude, and continue to act like a blind fool; accept losing, accept a wasting of your time and loyalty by idiots, and accept the taking of your money on a flawed product for the past 28 yrs.

    Have at it, baby.

    Yes, an intelligent post. Someone needs to get in Kelly’s face and someone needs to work with Reece on doing more than just being a reicever from the RB position. Streater is playing his first pro game – do not expect him to bust the SD secondary. However Kelly and Reece should have those things handled as well as Jones.

    How us fans knew that McK and DA should not mess with the strength of the team on offense (which they did and hired a bum Knapp to scrap what we had going for two years and start from scratch for no reason)

    Yeah. Sadly.

    When he got rid of Hue and the entire offensive staff and Fassel. It was start all over mode.

    Then Big Wiz resigned or was let go during camp.

    Big Wiz must have wanted more power blocking and running and Knapp and Pollack told DA and that was it.

    All McK needed to do was keep Hue and Fassel around and just work with Hue to hire and competent defensive staff and work on the cap.

    Instead, Davis and McK decide to start all over completely when it wasn’t necessary.

    It’s going be another long season.

    it took 59 minutes for the raiders to score a TD… and it was on a prevent D by the chargers…

    wake up people and know that Knapp alone is the culprit for his weak running game and dink and dunking BS…

  • xHOWIE75x

    Been a long time reader of this blog going back five or six years now. But felt I had to comment after last nights game.

    I hate to keep beating a dead horse but if you remember, before Hue we were terrible against the AFC West. I dont even know the infamous record we had from 2003 thru 2009.

    As soon as Hue took over our offense we were 9-3 against our AFC west foes. Cant ignore those facts. I will take that over a two period against our division rivals any day.

    Last night looked like the team from 2007. Sad sad day my nation brothers. 1 step forward 3 steps back.
