Should Marcel Reece be our premier RB?

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2014/02/27/ravens-to-cut-vonta-leach-jameel-mcclain-soon/ I read this and an interesting thought occured to me. I thought it would be worth mentioning to you guys and see what you all had to say...Arguably our best player on either side of the ball is FB Marcel Reece, the guy is a playmaker, a total load to bring down..he pass blocks, run blocks, carries the rock, lines up at wide out, takes water out to the huddle, catches the ball out of the backfield...theres not much you wont see Marcel do. In week 14 Reece stepped up in a big way, in place of injured Rashad Jennings and Darren McFadden he accumulated 123 yards with 6.5 YPC. A lot of pundits were asking why we had not seen more of Reece throughout the year. Theres no doubt he had an impact on every game he played in, (blocks are usually not kept track of). And its no doubt that Olsen is trying to get the most out of him, wherever that may be. But I gotta think this guy deserves more touches! So, bringing it back to the Leach article, if Jennings signs elsewhere. Might we just try to grab a blocking FB in FA, and move Reece to HB? Our depth would be Reece, Sheets, Murray and the 3-4 million we save from resigning Jennings could be spent on a Guard or on a defensive player. Any thoughts?
