Randle’s production unprecedented as a DT

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — As we wait for the official announcement of who will be voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame today, I’m sitting here on the Sirius XM Radio set alongside Gil Brandt, pulling little bits of knowledge as only Gil can provide.

Brandt points out that five of the original 15 finalists were from small, non-Div. I colleges, including John Randle, who was an undrafted free agent from Texas A & I.

“As a defensive tackle, for Randle to get 100 sacks is unheard of,” said Brandt. “These defensive tackles today, if they get five sacks (in a season), that’s good. He had over 10 sacks in nine out of 10 consecutive years.

Randle is a little bitty guy — around 240 pounds coming out of college. That’s why he wasn’t drafted out of college, and was originally considered to be a defensive end.”
