Calgary signed Randle as a free agent on May 22, 2012. He was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Dallas Cowboys on July 26, 2011, and attended the NFL club’s training camp.
Randle was on the one-game injured list for the first game and the reserve list for the second game. He got his first start in the third game of the season and in 16 starts he registered 34 defensive tackles, eight special-teams tackles, a quarterback sack and a forced fumble. Randle tied the team-lead with four interceptions including one that he ran back 65 yards for his first CFL touchdown and also led the team with nine knockdowns. Randle started the Western Final and registered eight tackles.
In his first season, Randle played in 15 games — including 12 starts at strong-side linebacker — and recorded 35 defensive tackles, a tackle for a loss, eight special teams-tackles, two knockdowns and an interception. Randle earned the Stampeders’ nomination for the CFL’s Most Outstanding Rookie award. His first CFL career interception came during the Labour Day Classic when he picked off Eskimos quarterback Kerry Joseph during the fourth quarter to change the momentum of the game. Randle got his first start in the third week of the season, replacing the injured Demetrice Morley at strong-side linebacker. He started 12 games before suffering a knee injury in BC on Oct. 6. He missed the next three games before returning to the lineup for the final regular-season game and the post-season. Randle recorded four tackles in a game on four occasions.
Randle played four seasons at Utah State and was a starter during his final two years with the Aggies. In 43 career games, he recorded 154 tackles, including six tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, four interceptions and 23 pass break-ups. In his two seasons as a starter, he recorded 99 tackles, 1.5 sacks and three interceptions.
Randle starred on both sides of the ball at Golden Valley High School in Merced, California, playing both quarterback and defensive back and earning league MVP honours. He set a school defensive record with 12 career interceptions. He was also an all-conference player in basketball at Golden Valley. Randle was working as a counsellor in a group home in Sacramento before signing with the Stampeders.
