John Randle Biography
Former NFL defensive tackle who played for the Minnesota Vikings and the Seattle Seahawks, John Randle was born December 12, 1967 in Mumford,Texas. Born in Texas, Randle was raised poor, and worked odd jobs when he was young. His brother Ervin Randle played as a linebacker for eight years. Randle started his college playing career at Trinity Valley Community College in Athens, Texas, before transferring to Texas A&I University-Kingsville.
Randle went undrafted, but was picked up by the Vikings during training camp, playing his first season in 1990. He went to his first Pro Bowl in 1993 after recording 11.5 sacks, and was quickly becoming one of the dominant defensive tackles of his era. Once Henry Thomas left the Vikings, Randle increased his training regimen, and became well known for his disarming on-field heckling of opposing players. Randle would record double digit sacks during eight straight seasons, including a career-high and league-leading 15.5 sacks in 1997.
Randle left the NFL tied with Richard Dent for 5th in number of career sacks, and his 137.5 career sacks is the most by a defensive tackle in NFL history. Over his career he was named to seven Pro Bowl squads. He was named All Tackle Machine of 1999 by Tackle The Magazine.
Randle was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame and inducted into the Minnesota Vikings Ring of Honor in 2008. He is eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2009.
