Talkative Randle left speechless by induction

CANTON, OHIO — John Randle was known as one of the best talkers in the NFL during his day, so there was some anticipation about his speech. Could he possibly match those hilarious mic’d up segments from NFL Films?

Let’s just say that maybe he should have put on the face paint and let loose, because this had to be one of the shortest speeches in recent memory. The normally demonstrative Randle, who always had something to say on the field, was overwhelmed by the enormity of his induction.

Randle thanked his family, including his mother, who raised three boys on her own, along with former coaches and teammates who turned him from a skinny, undrafted kid from Texas A&I into a Hall of Fame player.
