WR Randle ready to contribute more

Posted by Dan Salomone on November 8, 2012 – 4:21 pm

The NFL Draft isn’t everything. But it is something.

If you’re one who puts a lot of stock in it, then you’ll want to take a look at Cincinnati’s secondary. Seven of its 11 defensive backs are former first-round picks, including all five cornerbacks.

They are: cornerbacks Leon Hall (2007), Adam Jones (2005), Jason Allen (2006), Terence Newman (2003), and Dre Kirkpatrick (2012). Reggie Nelson (2007) plays safety while Nate Clements (2001) has seen time at both positions this season.

However, amassing the talent has led to mixed results in the first half of the season for Cincinnati, a year after it boasted a top 10 defense. The Bengals are 19th in the NFL against the pass, giving up 240.4 yards per game, while opponents average 27.3 points against them.

Wide receiver Rueben Randle, who has recently been thrown to in key situations, will test them out in the Giants’ second straight game against the AFC North.

“They’re pretty deep over there,” Randle said. “But we’ll have to find ways to beat them. We’ll just go out there and work on our techniques, be more patient and make some plays.”

Patience and playmaking are two things Randle has shown as a rookie.

As the primary punt returner, the rookie second-round draft choice has caught just nine passes. But those include two big plays of 56 and 36 yards, making up the bulk of his 154 yards on the year for a 17.1 average.

The 56-yarder came two weeks ago in Dallas, while his best game so far was six catches for 82 yards in Week 5 against Cleveland. Randle didn’t record a catch last week against Pittsburgh but was targeted on two third-and-shorts, including one from the Steelers’ five-yard line when the Giants settled for a field goal late in the third quarter.

Earlier in the week, Tom Coughlin said Randle was put in those situations based off his success the week before against the Cowboys. Coughlin and his staff also believe he could contribute more.

Randle agreed.

“It’s just based off the read Eli gets,” Randle said. “I had some opportunities to make some plays and didn’t quite make them. I’m just going back this week working to prepare myself to complete those opportunities when they come.”

Rookie Randle looks forward to more career firsts

Posted by Dan Salomone on September 24, 2012 – 5:33 pm

Ramses Barden wasn’t the only receiver to benefit from the bump up after Hakeem Nicks (foot) and Domenik Hixon (concussion) were scratched from Thursday night’s game against Carolina.

Rueben Randle, the Giants’ second-round draft choice, got his first career catch under his belt. While it officially went down as a quiet four-yard pickup late in the first quarter of a 36-7 road win, every stat line has to start somewhere.

“It is worth something being a rookie and getting your first catch,” Randle said on Monday. “But I’m just looking forward to more.”

His first reception was also the first time he had been targeted by Eli Manning this season, and Randle knew there would be a good possibility of it coming in Charlotte given the injuries at the position.

“I just went through it like a normal week,” Randle said. “I just go out every day and get better and try to continue to build trust each and every week with the players around me and also the coaching staff.”

He added: “I’m picking up each and every week, that’s my objective. I’m just trying to progress through things and play faster each and every week as the season goes along. Then hopefully by midseason I’ll be clicking.”

Meanwhile, returning punts has helped the LSU product build a comfort level on an NFL field despite the lack of reps on offense. Randle assumed the role in Week 2 after the coaching staff went with the veteran Hixon in the opener. He has returned three punts for an average of 9.7 yards with a long of 12 (in addition to four fair catches).

“I enjoy returning punts,” Randle said. “That’s a big play for your team. It just gives you confidence that your team has the faith in you to field the ball, get the ball back to the offensive end. That’s a big bonus.”
