Randle El Helping Those WR’s Trying to Take His Job

The Washington Post today reports that Skins WR Antwaan Randle El is being quite the team player – he’s helping those wide outs that might take his spot as the teams number two wide out:

The conversation has centered largely on the men who would unseat Antwaan Randle El as the Redskins’ No. 2 wide receiver, second-year players Malcolm Kelly and Devin Thomas. Both are bigger. Both are faster. Both, at this point in their careers, have more upside. And Randle El’s approach to both of them amounts to some warm, cuddly version of, “Bring it on.” “When you’re in competition, it can’t be me against him,” Randle El said earlier this week. “It’s got to be, ‘I got to do my job the best way I can do it,’ and then congratulate him publicly and privately. When they make plays, I’m encouraging them. And then I’m encouraging them even when I have to say, ‘You should probably do this on that route.’ “You can’t shy away from it. You’re trying to tell them stuff, because you’re trying to get them better, but at the same time, you’re speaking to yourself, too, to make sure you’re doing the same thing.”
