The Philadelphia Eagles have made two surprising roster moves on Sun. They released wide receivers Rueben Randle and Chris Givens.
The Eagles have been looking for wide receiver depth — and even traded for Dorial Green-Beckham from the Tennessee Titans. It’ll be interesting to see who they go after now.
Randle signed a one-year deal with the Eagles after spending the beginning of his career with the New York Giants. He was supposed to compete for the third receiver role in Philadelphia, like he had with the Giants.

Even with Jordan Matthews injured, he couldn’t get that spot. He had five receptions for 26 yards in the preseason in three games.
In his four-year career with the Giants, he had 188 receptions for 2,644 yards and 20 touchdowns.
Givens also came to the Eagles in the off-season. Against the Indianapolis Colts in the third game last night, he had a reception for 19 yards, which was his only catch of preseason.
He has a 107 receptions for 1,779 yards and five touchdowns. He spent the majority of his career with the St. Louis Rams before moving onto the Baltimore Ravens in a Oct. 2015 trade.
