The third-year wide receiver gave the best gift of all to his teammates today -- an early end to practice. As the Giants wrapped up the day with the usual two-minute drill, Randle struck on the first play with a deep pass from Eli Manning, who hit him in stride as he took it down the right sideline for a score.
“Yeah, we always try to do that,” Randle said. “That’s the main focus, as soon as we get in the huddle, we know we have two minutes. We try to make that first play our impression. Today happened to me and it’s pretty exciting.”
Safeties C.J. Barnett and Cooper Taylor
The pair of young safeties accounted for two of the three interceptions in Thursday’s practice. Undrafted rookie C.J. Barnett made a nice leaping grab off quarterback Ryan Nassib early in the team portion of drills.
Second-year safety Cooper Taylor followed that up with one of his own by jumping a route.
CB Charles James
James didn’t let the safeties have all the fun and notched his own interception for the cornerbacks. Highlighting another solid day for the secondary, James keeps progressing while soaking up all he can from the proven veterans on the team.
