Rueben Randle stepping up during OTA’s

According to Giants.com, wide receiver Rueben Randle has been lining up with the first-team offense with the absences of Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks and has been making some impressive catches. Quarterback Eli Manning and head coach Tom Coughlin have also grown more confident in the second year receiver.

Coughlin was asked if Randle is making the progressions he would like to see at this point.

“He’s moving in that direction. He certainly has had many, many opportunities, and if there’s a guy that really has a chance to step his game up and really show what he can do, it’s happening right now for Rueben,” said Coughlin.

Randle knows how important OTA’s are for him.

“I understood that going in anyway,” Randle said. “I think that’s why they drafted me. They wanted me to come in and make an impact. I’ve just got to go out there and get my job done and do it to the best of my abilities.

“You’ve just got to go out there and do what you’re supposed to do. It’s not really a blessing or anything like that. It’s just football. Two guys are gone, but the rest of us have got to step up and get the job done.”
