Eagles Cut Rueben Randle

The Eagles have announced a series of roster moves today, and the most surprising transaction is the release of wide receiver Rueben Randle, who was signed to a one-year deal over the offseason. Randle, who is still only 25 years old, was thought to be a clear starter for Philadelphia after averaging 56 receptions, 782 yards, and six touchdowns over the past three seasons with the Giants.Rueben Randle (Vertical)

But after the Eagles acquired Dorial Green-Beckham, Randle’s roster spot became tenuous, especially given his lackluster performance during the preseason. Philadelphia handed Randle $500K in guarantees plus a $25K roster bonus, so the club will incur $525K in dead money. Because he’s a vested veteran, Randle will not have to clear waivers and will become a free agent immediately.

The Eagles also made the following transactions:

    Rueben doesn’t want to put the work in…… To many taking plays off

    Givens and Randle, two guys who would’ve locked up a job with the slightest of effort. Then again this stuff will pull down half a million for nothing. SMH

  3. What a bum! Thank goodness G men let him loose

    Eagles working out a receiver from the Arena League that’s how bad randle and givens were. And they can’t cut agholor who has been terrible

    He could have been a nice back up to Green-Beckham if he were to get injured or not put the work in like what happened in Tennessee. I think they should have let him get some reps in though the year and then extend him for another year. He’s only 25, so I would not have been that high of a risk.
