Bears signed WR Rueben Randle to a reserve/future contract.

Reserve/future deals aren't typically handed out to former second-round picks, but Rueben was eligible after spending 2016 on the street. Randle is barely two years removed from a 938-yard campaign, but didn't even come close to making the receiver-needy Eagles' 53-man roster last summer. Randle turns 26 in May.

Free agent WR Rueben Randle worked out for the Bears on Monday.

It's the first we've heard of Randle since he worked out for the Saints way back ahead of Week 1 shortly after he was released by the Eagles. The Bears also worked out WRs Dres Anderson and Keshawn Martin.

Free agent Rueben Randle worked out for the Saints on Tuesday.

It's Randle's first workout since he didn't even make it to final cuts with the Eagles. It's quite possible the Saints are just updating their emergency list. Were Randle to sign, he wouldn't be a threat to Michael Thomas' sleeper status.

Eagles released WR Rueben Randle.

It's surprising in that Randle is a veteran in a weak wideout corps, but entirely unsurprising in light of Randle's summer and career arc. Randle caught only five passes for a pathetic 26 yards in three preseason games, and drew universal bafflement at his effort level. Randle seemed to take making the 53-man roster for granted. Randle is only 25 years old, and started all 16 games for the Giants last season, but both his film and buzz are that of a player who will have a hard time sticking on someone's roster in 2016.

Rueben Randle caught 2-of-2 targets for 13 yards in the Eagles' third preseason game.

Most unfortunately for Roob, he played clearly behind Dorial Green-Beckham, Nelson Agholor, Josh Huff, and Chris Givens. Roob ran exclusively with Chase Daniel on offense and will enter next week squarely on the roster bubble.

Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ Advanced Media projects Rueben Randle to make the Eagles' 53-man roster.

It comes at the expense of Chris Givens, who was left off Shorr-Parks' latest roster projections. Shorr-Parks also has Josh Huff making the team because of his contributions on special teams. Randle hasn't shown much this offseason but the Eagles don't have many better options. The depth chart is a landmine behind top wideout Jordan Matthews.

The Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane reports Rueben Randle has "failed to impress" this summer and is "expendable."

After drawing praise from coach Doug Pederson earlier this month, it's been all downhill from there for Randle. With the acquisition of Dorial Green-Beckham on Tuesday, Randle and fellow veteran free agent signing WR Chris Givens are on the roster bubble and in danger of not making the 53-man team. DGB, Jordan Matthews, Nelson Agholor, and KR/WR Josh Huff are ahead of Randle.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports Eagles WR Rueben Randle has looked "disinterested at times."

This was confirmed by Randle's performance in the preseason opener, a debacle succinctly summed up by Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski. "Embarrassment," Kempski said. "Barely ran routes. Didn't block. QBs can't possibly want him on the field." Randle could have easily pushed Nelson Agholor for a starting job, but seems content to let his career go further down the drain.

Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski labeled Rueben Randle's performance in Thursday's preseason opener an "embarrassment."

"Embarrassment," Kempski tweeted. "Barely ran routes. Didn't block. QBs can't possibly want him on the field." It sounds a lot like the Randle who irked coach Tom Coughlin and Eli Manning in New York, ultimately leading to the Giants letting him walk as a free agent in March. Randle played 28 offensive snaps Thursday, catching 1-of-3 targets for a measly three yards. Randle has proven to be one of the most effort-lacking players in the league since entering it.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson mentioned WR Rueben Randle as a player who has "stood out" during training camp.

This comes only a few days after MMQB's Peter King said Randle wasn't a lock to make the 53-man roster. Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer agreed that Randle is "carving a role on this team" and "has the attention" of both coaches and teammates. Aside from Jordan Matthews, the Eagles' depth chart at wide receiver should remain in flux throughout training camp.

MMQB's Peter King speculates Eagles WR Rueben Randle "may not make the 53-man roster."

Randle was getting buzz as the potential No. 3 receiver for Philadelphia, but King reports "he’s the fourth receiver at best." That said, it is still very early in camp, and the Eagles do not have any proven options behind Jordan Matthews. Randle could still win a spot, but it looks like he needs to show extremely well.

Rueben Randle has been working with the second-team offense at the start of Eagles camp.

Jordan Matthews, Nelson Agholor, and Josh Huff have been working with the ones. Last month, Randle was given the "early edge" for the No. 3 job, but the coaching staff appears to be drawn to Huff's upside for the time being. It's not the first time Huff has been tried with the first-team offense, but he's salted those opportunities away in the past due to drop-filled training camps.

The Philly Inquirer gives Rueben Randle the "early edge" for the Eagles' third receiver job entering training camp.

Eagles minicamp is over, so the team won't reconvene until camp. A favorite of new coach Doug Pederson, Randle spent the spring working in three-receiver sets alongside Jordan Matthews and Nelson Agholor. Randle's competition will come from Chris Givens and Josh Huff. Givens is a one-trick-pony speedster, while Huff did little his first two seasons and had too many drops in OTAs.
Mon, Jun 13, 2016 03:59:00 PM

Coach Doug Pederson said Rueben Randle "has really made an impact" at OTAs.

"He's a guy that's a big, tall, sort of a smooth receiver that understands what we're asking him to do," Pederson said. With Jordan Matthews not making much of an impression on the outside during the offseason program, it sounds like he'll be sticking to the slot, leaving an outside gig up for grabs opposite Nelson Agholor. Randle would seem to be the early favorite right now.
