New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks told the Newark Star-Ledger that he believes rookie Rueben Randle is ready to come in and contribute right away.
“I think he’s ready,” said Nicks. “I talk with him a lot. He takes a lot of advice. I look at it like I’m here to make this as smooth a transition as you want. I’m here, pick my brain, ask me whatever you need, and he does that. He catches on, he caught on to the offense rather quickly while playing both sides — the ‘X’ (receiver), the ‘W’ and the ‘Z’ in OTAs. And he was still able to catch on real quick.”
From what I’ve seen so far this preseason, I think Randle is the best player the Giants have to fill in as their third receiver.
