Raiders FB Marcel Reece signed his exclusive rights free-agent contract on Monday, ending his holdout. The tender is reportedly worth $540,000 for the 2012 season.

Reece has been a steady contributor for Oakland the past two seasons. In 2011, he played in 12 games with six starts, going 17-122-0 on the ground and 27-301-2 as a receiver.

In 2010, Reece played in all 16 games with 10 starts, rushing for 122 yards on 30 carries with one score and catching 25 passes for 333 yards and three touchdowns.

Earlier this offseason, the Raiders signed FB Owen Scmitt, who joins Reece as the team’s lead blockers for Darren McFadden.
