Raiders FB Marcel Reece was today named to the 2014 Pro Bowl, making it two years in a row that he has earned that honor.

Reece has played in all 15 games and started in 14 of them, which included one as RB following injuries to Darren McFadden, Jeremy Stewart and Rashad Jennings.

“First off, it’s an honor to be recognized amongst the elite players in the NFL,” Reece said. “I just want to say thank you to my family and my teammates for allowing me to be myself and play at a high level, and also say thank you, last but not least, to the Raider Nation for showing their continuous support throughout the season and my career.”

Reece rushed for 218 yards on 46 attempts this season and has averaged 4.7 yards per carry, while rushing for a career-high 124 yards in his start as running back against the NY Jets on Dec. 8.

As a receiver, Reece has also netted 31 catches for 320 yards this year for an average of 10.3 yards per catch, which is third best among all running backs.

Reece joined the Raiders in 2008 as an undrafted rookie free agent and spent the 2008 season and most of 2009 on the practice squad before being promoted to a started in 2010.
