Randle Added To Vikings Practice Squad
Sep 4, 2013
LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - UNLV's active NFL contingent expanded by one on Wednesday as former Rebel running back Bradley Randle was added to the practice squad of the Minnesota Vikings.
Randle, who ran for a career-high 635 yards and a team-leading nine total touchdowns in 2012, soon became just the third Rebel to leave early for the professional ranks. He earned his bachelor's degree earlier this year and put his name into the NFL Draft.
Randle, who is the son of former longtime MLB player Lenny Randle, went undrafted but signed a free-agent deal with the Vikings. Despite earning wide praise from media and fans of the team for his toughness and blocking ability through the preseason, Randle was released by Minnesota last week and was not a part of the squad's original practice roster.
However, the team just released running back Joe Bayard and brought in Randle, which raised the number of former Rebels with NFL teams to six.
