Giants' receiver Rueben Randle emerging as offensive weapon in training camp

Second-year wide receiver Rueben Randle has posterized nearly the entire Giants starting secondary over the past two days. He’s not just making a statement early in training camp, he’s screaming from the mountaintop.

On Monday, Randle sprinted past safety Antrel Rolle and cornerback Corey Webster on a post pattern to make a dazzling over-the-shoulder grab at the goal line for a touchdown. Earlier, he snagged a bullet over the middle, wrestling the ball from Prince Amukamara.

Tuesday, the 6-2, 208-pound Randle outleaped Webster and Amukamara on a deep ball at the goal line for a score. It was easily the catch of the day, soliciting a roar of approval from the crowd.

"I’m not surprised," Randle said, benefitting from increased first-team reps with Hakeem Nicks being limited with a groin injury. "I always knew I was capable of doing it. It was just a matter of me getting an understanding of the offense so I can go out there and play fast and make more plays."

Randle, a second-round pick (63rd overall) out of LSU, has been a work in progress. He was slow to pick up the offense last season, which some attributed to a poor work ethic. But he finished strong, catching four passes for 58 yards and two touchdowns in a season-ending victory over Philadelphia.

With Victor Cruz locked in a contract stalemate and boycotting the offseason program and Nicks skipping organized team activity practices, Randle pounced on the opportunity. He was a standout in OTAs and minicamp. It has carried over to training camp.

You work hard and it pays off. Nicks didnt want to get hurt and sat out while he got in tons of practice. I think he might emerge as a #3 sleeper type pick if he keeps up the work and gets the opportunities. ;-D
