    Randle Wants A Bigger Role, Seems Ready

    http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/gia...-appears-ready

    Excerpt: "Hakeem Nicks is one of the keys, if not the biggest key, to the Giants' fate in 2013.

    But in a split-second, Rueben Randle could instead become the biggest factor.

    We found that out Sunday, when Nicks looked great during individual drills, but then missed the rest of practice after feeling tightness in his groin.


    If Nicks goes down during the regular season (as he did last year), Randle becomes a starter, with a lot more responsibility -- something Randle wants regardless.

    "I just want to go out there and make more plays," Randle said Sunday, prior to the second practice of training camp. "I think we left a lot of them out there last season that could have at least gotten us into the playoffs and had a chance to go into the Super Bowl. So I feel like we could make up on that and come out this season and make a lot of more plays."

    Randle had an up-and-down rookie year with Big Blue after being drafted in the second round out of LSU. Overall, he had just 19 receptions for 288 yards. But he did show flashes of future stardom from time to time. In a Week 5 win over the Browns, he had a season-high six catches for 82 yards. And in the Giants' season-ending victory over the Eagles, he had four catches for 58 yards, including a pair of touchdowns.

    Randle said Sunday that he wants to leave his rookie year behind and focus on the future.

    "I feel like I've done everything, I can do everything pretty well now," Randle said. "I think I've learned from my mistakes and what I need to really work on, and just exploit those things to really get better overall." Read more...

    Seeing as though Nicks seems to be made of glass Randle may get his wish.

    He will get it. And he will be our replacement for Nicks in 2014.

    We will keep all three for at least the next 2 years and go on to dominate the NFL.

    Eli will determine Nick's fate this season, could make or break the guy

    in simply throwing or not throwing to him. If Eli gets comfortable with Randle, Nicks may get a disappointing contract this time next year.

    This is such nonsense! If Nicks is healthy he will be the 1A/1B receiver! (trying to keep the peace with those that believe Cruz is the go to guy). Nicks will get the ball a ton. Why?? Because Eli and the coaches want to win the SB, and a healthy Hakeem Nicks is one of the biggest pieces to that puzzle. Nicks will determine his own fate this season! That is all...

    A healthy Nicks is our best receiver period.
