The Eagles have released
The team also parted ways with Chris Givens on Sunday, which bodes well for Paul Turner's chances of making the Eagles' 53-man roster as a depth option behind Jordan Matthews, Nelson Agholor, Josh Huff and Dorial Green-Beckham.
Randle did not start Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers, Martin Frank of the Delaware News Journal reports.
In the absence of Jordan Matthews (knee), Philly started Nelson Agholor, Josh Huff and Chris Givens at wideout, though Randle and rookie UDFA Paul Turner also got plenty of chances to mix in while starting quarterback Sam Bradford was still in the game. Randle managed just two catches for 10 yards on two targets, after catching one ball for three yards on three targets in the preseason opener. Once viewed as a strong candidate for the No. 3 wideout role, Randle likely now finds himself on the roster bubble, with his chances taking a further hit due to Philly's recent acquisition of Dorial Green-Beckham.
Jordan Matthews and Nelson Agholor are the top two wideouts, with Randle, Chris Givens and Josh Huff vying for the No. 3 and 4 roles. While he does appear to have the early edge, Randle will still need to impress throughout the rest of training camp and the preseason in order to fend off the competition.
Randle (gallbladder) returned to the field for Tuesday's mandatory minicamp after missing the final two weeks of OTAs, PennLive.com reports.
Randle had his gallbladder removed May 23, but he was back on the practice field 15 days later and shouldn't be affected. Head coach Doug Pederson said Randle will compete for a starting job on the outside, with other candidates including Nelson Agholor, Josh Huff and Chris Givens. Despite having to settle for a one-year, $1.025 million contract in March, the 25-year-old Randle has every opportunity to earn a significant role.
The procedure may require a week or two of recovery, but it shouldn't threaten Randall's availability for training camp. After signing a one-year contract in the offseason, he'll compete for snaps against Nelson Agholor, Josh Huff, Chris Givens and others. Jordan Matthews is locked in as the top receiver, and Agholor's draft status (2015 first-rounder) would seem to give him an edge for the No. 2 role.
