The Chicago Bears announced Tuesday that they’ve signed former Giants WR Rueben Randle to a future/reserve contract.
Randle becomes the 10th player to sign a futures deal with the Bears since their season ended. The full list includes:
- WR Dres Anderson (NFLTR)
- CB De’Vante Bausby
- RB David Cobb
- C Cornelius Edison
- CB Jacoby Glenn
- OT William Poehls
- CB Rashaad Reynolds
- G Cyril Richardson
- DL Kapron Lewis-Moore
- WR Rueben Randle
Future/reserve contracts are essentially an opportunity for players compete for a roster spot in offseason workouts and during training camp.
Randle, 25, is a former second-round pick of the Giants back in 2012. He played out his rookie contract with the Giants before signing a one-year, $1.025 million contract with the Eagles back in March.
The Eagles ultimately elected to cut him loose as they got down to the 75-man roster limit.
In 2015, Randle appeared in all 16 games for the Giants and recorded 57 receptions for 797 yards receiving and eight touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 77 receiver out of 121 qualifying players.
