Rueben Randle said he expects to start for the Eagles in 2016.
To do so, he'll probably have to beat out Nelson Agholor and Josh Huff. Randle fielded multi-year offers during free agency but ultimately went with the Eagles' one-year offer because he felt Philadelphia provided the "best opportunity for me to showcase my talent and improve myself." A chronic underachiever in New York, it's anyone's guess if Philadelphia will bring out Randle's full potential. Apr 1 - 4:20 PM

Date:

Eagles signed WR Rueben Randle, formerly of the Giants, to a one-year, $1.025 million contract.

He can earn over $3 million via incentives and got $500,000 guaranteed. Randle also drew interest from the Rams but decided Philadelphia was his best fit. Consistency has eluded Randle to this point in his career, but he's coming off a career-high eight touchdowns and has never missed a game since entering the league in 2012. He should be the Eagles' No. 3 receiver behind Jordan Matthews and Nelson Agholor. By adding Randle and Chris Givens to the mix this offseason, Josh Huff can no longer be assured of his spot on the 53-man roster.

ESPN's Nick Wagoner reports the Rams are unlikely to sign free agent WR Rueben Randle.

The Rams have been Randle's only reported visit. An inconsistent receiver who has never capitalized on his physical traits, Randle has predictably found a cold market. He could be waiting a while to find a new home.
Mar 22 - 11:11 AM

Free agent Rueben Randle is visiting the Rams.

It's the first we've heard of Randle since the start of free agency. The Rams have an embarrassingly thin receiver corps, but Randle wouldn't do much to lengthen it. He's mistake prone and maddeningly inconsistent, and would almost certainly be asked to do too much for Jeff Fisher's squad.
Mar 14 - 1:17 PM

The Newark Star-Ledger's Jordan Raanan gives impending free agent Rueben Randle a "15 percent" chance of re-signing with the Giants.

One of the more frustrating receivers in the league, Randle has never been able to turn his natural gifts into consistent production. He was benched twice in 2014 for being late to meetings and struggled when given a bigger role in the offense. Still, Randle is only 24, has good measurables and scored eight TDs last season. He will likely be overpaid in an uninspiring receiver market.

The Newark Star-Ledger doesn't envision the Giants re-signing impending free agent Rueben Randle.

Beat writer James Kratch isn't sure if the Giants even want Randle back, but he also suspects Randle will get more money from another team than the Giants will be willing to pay. Randle seemed to frustrate ex-coach Tom Coughlin a great deal, but it's unclear how OC-turned-coach Ben McAdoo felt about the 24-year-old. Randle is entering a market with not much receiver talent available, so it's possible a team drastically overpays him.
Feb 5 - 11:01 AM

Rueben Randle caught 4-of-7 targets for 79 yards and one touchdown in the Giants' Week 17 loss to the Eagles.

Eli Manning found Randle deep behind the defense for a 45-yard touchdown. Both Randle and Odell Beckham were open on the play. Randle set a new career-high in touchdowns this season with eight, but his catches (57) and yards (797) were both off from his 2014 receiving line of 71-938-3. He continued to be a mistake-prone underachiever this season. At 6'2/208, Randle has size to excel in the red zone, and he doesn't turn 25 until May. Randle is scheduled to become a free agent in March. He's said he'd like to return to the Giants, but it's uncertain if the feeling will be mutual. Randle has talent, but he's been more knucklehead than playmaker through four seasons. Randle should draw plenty of interest from receiver-needy teams, but he's not a No. 1 guy.
Jan 3 - 7:01 PM

Rueben Randle caught 2-of-5 passes for 80 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' Week 16 loss to the Vikings.

Randle was left wide open on his 72-yard touchdown. He was otherwise shut down, catching only one pass for eight yards. Randle will return to a supporting role behind Odell Beckham for next week's Eagles matchup.

Coach Tom Coughlin named Rueben Randle first when asked whom the Giants will look to for big plays in the absence of Odell Beckham.

"Rueben comes to mind," said Coughlin. Averaging six targets per game this season, beat writer Jordan Raanan anticipates Randle drawing "about eight or nine" on Sunday Night Football against the Vikings. It's a big opportunity for Randle on national TV with two regular season games left in his contract year.

Rueben Randle caught 4-of-5 targets for 47 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' Week 15 loss to the Panthers.

The Panthers literally forgot to cover Randle on his first quarter touchdown, leaving him unguarded for a 27-yard score down the left sideline. 4/47/1 is about as good as a Randle line gets. He'll be a WR4/5 against the Vikings in the fantasy finals.
Sun, Dec 20, 2015 06:24:00 PM

Rueben Randle caught 5-of-6 targets for 58 yards and one touchdown in the Giants' Week 14 win over the Dolphins on Monday night.

All in all, this was probably one of the better games of Randle's four-year career and definitely one of his better ones of this season. He found a soft spot in the Dolphins' zone defense for his six-yard touchdown in the first half, and then made a nice "hands" catch on an outside throw from Eli Manning later. Randle expressed a desire for more opportunities this past week, and the Giants got him involved early. He'll be a WR3 next week at home against 13-0 Carolina.
Tue, Dec 15, 2015 12:58:00 AM

Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Rueben Randle should "take more advantage" of his current opportunities instead of complaining about his role.

Randle said this week he was "frustrated" with an role which has produced just one game with more than seven targets this season. As Coughlin correctly pointed out, Randle could demand more work by doing more with the targets he is given. Randle has caught just three of his last 12 targets and is averaging a career-worst 12.7 yards per catch. Not playing well and clearly catching the coaches' ire, it is unlikely Randle sees an expanded role in the final four games of the year.

Rueben Randle admitted that he's "frustrated" with his offensive role.

Randle has started every game in his contract year, but he's only topped seven targets in a game once and is on pace for just a 56-710-5 receiving line after posting a 71-938-3 line last season. "My opportunities have been cut down a little more," Randle said. "Odell [Beckham] is pretty much the prime target for us offensively. ... It’s definitely frustrating." His 1.18 yards per route run is 69th among 83 qualified receivers, behind guys like Cole Beasley and Brian Hartline.
Tue, Dec 8, 2015 08:16:00 PM

Rueben Randle reeled in two of six targets for 22 yards in the Giants' Week 13 loss to the Jets.

Both receptions came in the second half. Randle has been targeted 12 times over his last two games but only has three catches to show for it. With the fantasy playoffs starting up, Randle won't be an option against the Dolphins next week.
Sun, Dec 6, 2015 06:08:00 PM

Rueben Randle caught 1-of-6 targets for 36 yards and a touchdown Week 12 against the Redskins.

Randle was having a terrible day before hooking up with Eli Manning for a 40-yard score on fourth down late in the game. It was Randle's only catch, and he ended up losing four yards on a lateral play to close out the loss. Randle has been terrible this season, but he sees at least six targets most weeks. That is worth something in deep leagues.
