Marcel Reece has signed his exclusive rights restricted free agent tender and will be an Oakland Raider in 2012.
Per the Raiders press release today:
The veteran participated in the Raiders' Organized Team Activities (OTAs) with his teammates on Monday.
The 6-foot-2, 250-pound Reece has played in 30 career games with 16 starts since joining the Silver and Black as an undrafted free agent in 2008. His career totals include 54 receptions for 654 yards and five touchdowns, and 47 carries for 234 yards and one touchdown.
This is great news for Raider Nation as Reece, the former undrafted rookie free agent from the University of Washington, has shown himself to be a dynamic weapon on scripted plays and also on busted plays.
Reece's elite size and speed make him a mismatch against most defensive players.
More to come on this, but, go ahead Raider Nation, celebrate the fact that we, the Nation, have another one of our guys back in the fold.
