Eagles And WR Randle Agree To One-Year Deal

Posted Mar 23, 2016

On Wednesday evening, the Eagles made another addition to the wide receiver corps, agreeing to terms with former New York Giant Rueben Randle on a one-year contract.

Rueben is the second wide receiver signed by the Eagles since the start of free agency, as the team picked up Chris Givens as well.

Randle, a second-round pick out of LSU in 2012, has never missed a game in his four seasons, and started all 16 games for the Giants in 2016, catching a career-best eight touchdowns. Over his first four years, Randle has totaled 188 catches for 2,644 yards and 20 touchdowns. His best season, statistically, came in 2014 when he caught 71 passes for 938 yards. With the Giants, Randle has worked both outside and in the slot.

A standout receiver at LSU, Randle played in 40 games for the Tigers with 25 starts and finished his college career with 97 catches for 1,634 yards and 13 touchdowns. As a junior in 2011, he was named first-team All-Southeastern Conference by the league’s coaches and second-team All-SEC by the Associated Press after setting career highs in receptions (53), receiving yards (917) and receiving touchdowns (eight).

Like Givens, Randle brings some experience to a very young Eagles receiving corps, joining the likes of Jordan Matthews, Nelson Agholor and Josh Huff. It will be up to Doug Pederson and the rest of the coaching staff to see how the pieces all fit together at the wide receiver position.
