Reece, 31, had been with Oakland since since 2009. He violated the league’s policy on performance enhancing drugs last December, and the ensuing multi-game ban cost him a trip to the Pro Bowl. While Reece was out, the Raiders found a capable (and cheaper) replacement in Jamize Olawale.

In 2015, Reece caught 30 passes for 269 yards and three touchdowns and also added 36 rushing yards. A versatile back who can play a variety of roles, Reece averaged 34 receptions per season from 2010-15. The Patriots passed on him after a recent workout, but the rival Jets might find a place for him.
