Reece locked up for three more years

Fullback Marcel Reece has signed a three-year contract extension, the Raiders announced Friday.

Reece, who made the Pro Bowl last season, was to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The Raiders could have as much as $50 million available under the salary cap next season and are likely to make a run at other players in the final year of their contract such as defensive end Lamarr Houston, left tackle Jared Veldheer and running back Darren McFadden.

“It’s another step toward my goal _ being a Raider for life,’’ Reece said in a release.

    Fantastic. Now can they use him for a screen or a proven wheel route?

  • aig-raiders

    or move him temp to TE? I’m sure he is a lil bit faster than Mastrud.

    Lemon is a must when cooking with seafood, imo.

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

    On “Chopped” last night, Tiki Barber used Gatorade instead of lemon on his grilled salmon.

    Any chefs out there? I have a one pound rainbow trout, olive oil, onion, and lemon. I have basil and cilantro in the garden but ive never tried that.

    maybe I should skip the lemons and go with tomatos, onions and cilantro?

    Super! We locked our guy up. However, I wish our coaches could use him properly. Good looking out Jer.!

  • SilverAndBlackBleeder

    Makes perfect sense huh? Use him less and pay him more. Haha, hopefully that’s a sign of things to come though cause we all know Reece can be a huge mismatch IF used properly. Maybe that’s management’s way of telling Olsen – get him the ball

  • http://profootballtalk.com Raideraholic (AKAHairyBush)

    not the most nutritious option but pretty good tasting.

    balance it out with a salad.

  • LA to TheBay

    Nice.

    Plunketthead… not sure if you still online.

    Yes, it is the original LA to TheBay, the one and only (you’re Raider Fan of the Year Award is still in the mail).

    Somebody jacked my handle??

  • SilverAndBlackBleeder

    Looking forward to a great weekend. Get to watch Touchdown Teddy lead my Cards as they beat the brakes off hated rival Kentucky, & its the Raiders first home game. Let’s go!

    Actually, somebody gave Plunk a run for his money for Greatest Fan on the official 2013 record prediction board when he put 17-2

  • The Big Banana

    Plunk, the lemon is good.

    Throw it all into a heat proof dish/vessel of some sort, season it, and bake that b1tch.

    If your container can withstand the heat of a BBQ grill, even better.

    sounds great but this dih will be a little easier

  • Plunketthead

    hello LA. Yeah, it was real close name

  • Kirk

    Now start Reece at half back instead of McFadden.

  • lefty12

    Plunkett-recipe#2-rub outside with olive oil,put slices of onion and lemon with herbs into cavity of the trout,wrap in foil and throw on the B-B-Q about 6-8 minutes per side.

  • elraidmanhattan

    Watched pryor on pft, can they possibly come up with stupider questions? I mean who wants to know if he is the fatest qb in the league? Hard nosed questions really???

  • Kirk

    Mr. Pryor, if you could be a tree, what kind of tree would you be?

  • elraidmanhattan

    Kirk- i think you will see reece, not at halfback, but olsen will integrate him depending on opponent and scheme, my feeling is there are lot’s of possibilities on offense now, especially with pryor frustrating defenses, see reece more as that receiver out of the backfield

    You can mayo both sides of the fish. Put it on some foil and put some sliced lemons, salt, pepper, and some other seasonings/herbs on the fish. Then crimp the foil together, first over the fish then the top and bottom to seal the foil. Then bake fish.

  • elraidmanhattan

    Erik kuselius must have some knowledgeable person draw up these questions:

    Are you on a leash?
    Are you the fastest qb?

    My daughter can come up with better questions like:

    What is your favorite color?
    Is your home contemporary?

    Reece is by far our best running back. He should have been starting last year. McFadden should be his backup.

  • Plunketthead

    Lefty that’s the one I am leaning to. I usually use rosemary.

    Reece will have more plays drawn up for him sunday guaranteed…like his contract

    Let him prove something first.

  • JLofty

    Awesome now maybe the coaches will start drawing up some plays for him to participate in…

  • elraidmanhattan

    Kirk, can’t disagree especially when you design plays for dmac running up the middle. I still want to see dmac over a 3 to 4 game period to make my own determination, either way i think he is a goner after the year

  • JLofty

    England, I thought Lamarr showed us an awful lot against Indy. He was a wrecking ball.
    Don’t want to wait too long or it will cost us both arms and a leg…

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    Reese is one hell of a player but he’s not about to replace McFadden.

  • elraidmanhattan

    Lamar houston will get an extension, definite cog on the line

  • Demon Raider

    I wanna sign Ben Tate next year as our starting RB….

    We play Indy and win mostly because of Prior and so we should extend Houston?
    Not buying that.

    McFadden’s main issue is that he isn’t good.

    ===

    I’ve been saying that for two seasons now. He’s all legs and little brain. I even said it the season he was drafted that all he has shown in his college highlights is the ability to run through really big holes and then outrun the secondary.

    He doesn’t seem to have a knack to find the non-big holes that require patience, reading and knowing how to set up your blocks. That’s why he was so horrible in the ZBS as a system that puts maximum demand on those skills. A PBS system at least gives him a chance to barrel through a predefined spot where there is some sort of hole opening and occasionally blast it bigger by hitting it hard enough. More often than not, he’s getting chipped by a piece of his own lineman because he just runs where he’s supposed to go and sometimes you need to adjust.

    This is also why I think a cerebral QB like Flynn is better for a DMac run game than Pryor. Someone that can read the defense and adjust running play blocking helps him. Pryor doesn’t do this and that’s one reason the running game is bad. It also doesn’t help that he doesn’t scare anyone with his arm so he’s facing defenses that are putting more and more effort into taking away the run from either the QB or RB.

    One play that will work that we haven’t seen yet: the Flea Flicker. With defenses so keyed on the run, a DMac pitchback to Pryor could let a WR or TE sneak out deep.

    trade DMC to Indy now!

    Jimmy graham is going nowhere.

    I really am dying to see ausberry can be really special

  • Demon Raider

    Ben Tate is still pretty young. I think he’s in his 4th year now but had to sit behind Arian Foster his whole career. lol
