Jerry Reese: Giants “expect” development from Rueben Randle

With Hakeem Nicks able to test free agency in March, it’s quite possible Rueben Randle could have an even bigger role in the Giants’ receiving corps next season.

Speaking at the NFL Scouting Combine on Saturday, Giants G.M. Jerry Reese said the club anticipates “a significant jump” from Randle, a third-year pro, in 2014.

“We continue to expect him to grow and be a more mature player and be a strong contributor for us,” Reese said.

Randle has shown field-stretching ability in his brief NFL career, gaining 15.2 yards per catch. In his second NFL season, Randle hauled in 41 passes for 611 yards and led the team with six TD catches. He was third on the club in targets (79) behind Nicks (101) and Victor Cruz (122).

Randle does not turn 23 until May, making further development quite possible. On Saturday, Reese said the “jury’s still out” on whether Randle could become a go-to receiver.

“I think he’s a good player. I’m not sure if he’s a one, if he’s a two, if he’s a three, but I think he can contribute to our receiving corps,” Reese said.

All things considered, those are modest expectations for a talented player. If Randle can exceed those expectations, the Giants will reap the benefits — as will Randle, who can test free agency after the 2015 season.

    Cordarelle Patterson + Greg Jennings + Jerome Simpson is the best wide reciever combination in the NFL.

    It’s like peanut butter, Jelly & bread.

    They just go together perfect and compliment each other.

    Without an offensive line – the development of the NY Giants receivers will be put on hold.

    Id take a number 4 undrafted receiver jermaine Kearse over any Vikings receiver. Best of luck with Christian ponder and Josh Freeman.
    P.s.
    The defense is ranked 29th against the pass, and Jared Allen is gone. Lol

    Never, ever, ever forget him abusing Nnamdi. ABUSING Nnamdi, lol. What a debacle…

    It’s good to be the team-that-never-has-won-anything AND the best team in the division again… Instead of just the team-that-has-never-won-anything.

    no idea why the vikings fans are following giants posts this closely. and i like the eagles fan’s approach. after all, pointing to the trophy cabinet is living in the past. i’ll always have my memories of the 4 super bowls and nothing can take them away, but with what the giants put on the field this past season, no giants fan has a leg to stand on unless they are talking trash to a skins fan.
