The Oakland Raiders have given fullback Marcell Reece a three-year extension.

Reece, 28, will become the NFL’s highest paid fullback with a new deal worth over $13 million with $7.2 million guaranteed. It will keep one of the Raiders targets out of the backfield on the team.

Last season Reece caught 52 passes for 496 yards and a touchdown.

The new deal locks up Reece though the 2016 season and giving the Raiders with a lead blocker ahead of Darren McFadden for years to come.
