In other words, another cheap contract at a position that is decidedly inexpensive for Seattle.
Randall was acquired by the Seahawks just before the start of the regular season. He was initially signed to the practice squad before he was promoted to the active roster. In 10 appearances for Seattle, Randall made three tackles while playing on special teams and played sparse rotating snaps in the secondary as a safety.
The signing gives Seattle solid versatility and speed in the secondary at a reasonable price. Randall played corner for the first three years of his career, and had played safety for the past three seasons. With the Seahawks currently short-handed at the outside corner position, Randall may see more playing time in 2021. He’ll certainly be in competition for a roster spot.
