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.

    Welcome to the club.

    All this talk of Reggie’s priority being to re-sign current players is well and good but less exciting if u consider that the current players are considered to be the worst collective roster in the entire league.

    Most of us agree this roster is not as bad as the “experts” say, but they have yet to win a single game yet so pardon my lack of excitement hearing that resigning current players with the 50 mill is a priority.

    I wanna hear that he’s gonna use that money to sign VERY GOOD/GREAT players to help this team win games with all the money he’ll have.

    I know we’ve overspent on overpriced duds in the past, but that’s no reason to give up and doing what’s needed to get great players on the team.

    Everyone says we have zero talent. All i’m asking is with all that money…FIX THAT.

    I’d like to sign TE Jimmy Graham and DE Michael Johnson too….

    I’m pissed that the Bengals signed DT Atkins to an extension…..

    @@@@@@@

    What makes you think graham wont be resigned?

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

    The Saints have a ton of money tied up in a few players like Brees, Bushrod, Will Smith, Vilma, Lofton. They re-signed Colston last year.

    I don’t think they’d have the money to get in a bidding war to keep Graham.

  • elraidmanhattan

    Seriously. Flynn is better for dmac? That unfortunately is not a cerebral statement, pryor is a huge plus for dmac

  • RaiderRockstar

    Henne is the Raider defenses “12th man” , Elraid [according to some]

  • C2E

    Indy is desperate and options are few.

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

    So you want a return to the ZBS?

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

    I don’t think Tate is a pure ZBS RB.

    trade DMC to Indy now!

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

    Assuming they’d give us anything for him…
    ===========================================

    There is an apparent deal in the works. Irsay and Grigson has offered up a two bags of cheetos and a twelve of Dr. Pepper. The stickling point is McKenzie wants Pepsi but Indy won’t budge.

    Maybe. But I think they will figure out a way to keep him. And even if they don’t, Reggie isn’t getting into a bidding war w anyone either. Plus we just drafted 2 promising TEs. His dont see graham ever coming here. Doesn’t mean I wouldn’t take him……

  • Demon Raider

    With Veldheer being injured, we could re-sign him for cheaper than a than if he was healthy the whole season.

  • elraidmanhattan

    DJ- no doubt about it this so called abysmal roster by my favorite adam caplan is horse manure. I think all this 1 year deals are brilliant reggie will know who he will commit to and who not to. Next year a couple of bona fide studs signed as free agents works for me.

    Btw not that anyone cares but i can beg that ireland is on the hotseat in miami, went out of control fa wise no cap room next year

    Tampa is imploding

  • elraidmanhattan

    55 got it actually a good pick can throw 3 ints. Sunday

  • Demon Raider

    Graham is the best TE in the league, hands down. You don’t gamble on two 6th round pick rookie TEs if you can sign the best TE in the league.

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    The offensive line didn’t really look good in the Indy game.
    At the beginnging of the year you would think that it was the strongest component.

  • Demon Raider

    I want to see what good Guards, if any, are FAs next year.

    I know WR Kakeem Nicks is looking to be a FA too.

  • elraidmanhattan

    Cincy will not resign johnson, they have too many players to lockup

  • elraidmanhattan

    Demon, Nicks will be available doubt giants will resign him, spent good money on cruz, they like randle, and hicks was already pouting during otas

  • Demon Raider

    They already said they won’t re-sign Johnson. So he is expected to hit FA….

  • elraidmanhattan

    But we could have drafted nicks if we were smart instead of dhb

  • VanHeathen30

    Now that he resigned, let’s get the ball in hands some more…

  • Demon Raider

    I know Nicks is gonna be a FA. lol. I’d sign him if he isn’t like real expensive. He’s a very good WR, far better than anyone on our team. He’s just has trouble staying healthy.

  • elraidmanhattan

    Demon, correct. Johnson as i said will be up for grabs

  • http://www.Raiders.com KoolKell

    Well, maybe now they’ll figure out a way to get Reece involved with the Offense.

  • JLofty

    England you watched the Indy-Raider game and failed to notice Lamarr Houston making an impact on defense?

    Damn dude I want some of whatever your drinkin/smokin on game day bro!

    Really? I have a 2.8 ypc average against a pretty weak run defense in week 1 that says otherwise.

    Sorry to use facts instead of emotions to make points.

    The best? Define “best”.
    If that means the guy with most obvious impact, then it’s probably going to be Houston.

    The most useful guy might be Nick Roach because he is one hell of a big improvement over McClain.

  • Whoknows

    Whats the point if your not going to use him?

  • Demon Raider

    I’m just concerned about what kind of deal Johnson would want. I wouldn’t really want to sign him to more than a 5 year, 40 Mil deal.

  • elraidmanhattan

    Lofty Nicks wanted a new contract he is unhappy, and i know he is mannings most trusted receiver.

    Funny mananinham was just ok, giants didn’t need him, which i agree with what has he done for SF?

  • Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    FIRE REGGIE NOW.

  • JLofty

    “Sorry to use facts instead of emotions to make points.”

    - This is expressly forbidden in here. It said as much when you signed up. In fact it was one of the little check boxes you had to check to get in. Straighten up please….

    It’s in the mailk brother!
    You STILL don’t extend a guy because of one game and it’s still true that the reason that we won was because of Pryor.

    77- don’t see any correlation with the flynn helping dmac, sorry disagree.

    Nick roach has a two-year contract

  • JLofty

    I think I want some of whatever your drinkin/smokin RIGHT NOW England!!
    We did not win although with 1st and goal inside a min to go down 4 pts you cannot be faulted for not believing we didn’t.
    Houston has been a playa for us for 4 yrs. He has gotten BETTER each of those 4 yrs. I say sign him up REAL soon…

  • Demon Raider

    Roach has a 4 year deal, Willy……

  • elraidmanhattan

    This droid sucks, constant typos and freakin slow.

    I will repeat again, dmac needs to prove he can still do it, flynn, pryor or troy aikman doesn’t matter, with pryor it at least establishes some mystery in what may happen, again, i think olsen is still playing with his toys and it is a work in progress

  • elraidmanhattan

    Kalulka questionable sunday btw

  • elraidmanhattan

    Roach-4 years

  • Whoknows

    Plunk id go with the cavity stuffed trout, i just wouldnt wrap it in foil. You can skewer it shut or tie it with some twine this way you can get the skin nice and crispy. Just be sure to use a hot, oiled grill and dont move it around once it on there. Dont for get to s & p inside and out.

  • Whoknows

    If you want you can use the rosemary to scewer it

    Not really sure what you said there Lofty.
    No offense Willy, but it’s almost like you wrote it.

    If somewhere in there Lofty, it said that Houston is a valuable player then I’ve never questioned that.

    As to extending a guy’s contract after one game against Indy…..personally, I’d wait awhile.
