The Oakland Raiders and fullback Marcel Reece have agreed to a three-year extension worth upwards of $13 million, according to NFL.com reporter Ian Rapoport. Reece will reportedly earn a $7.2 million in guaranteed money, which would be the most ever given to a fullback in NFL history.

Reece, 28, entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2008 with the Miami Dolphins before catching on with the Oakland Raiders in 2010. Reece has proven to be a highly versatile fullback in 2012, rushing for 271 yards while catching 52 passes for 496 yards for the Raiders.

Reece thanked Al Davis for believing in him and said he hopes to be a “Raider for life.” Reece has rushed for 501 yards during his three-year career with the Raiders.
