With Felix Jones no longer on the roster the Cowboys were looking for a back to compliment DeMarco Murray. Randle rushed for 1,417 yards and 14 touchdowns last season and 1,216 yards and 24 touchdowns in 2011.
The 6-0, 200-pounder, who started 31 of 39 games at Oklahoma State, was also a valuable receiver, catching 108 balls for 917 yards and three touchdowns.
"The NFL is a two-back system now so guys need other guys to come in and you don’t want to drop the tempo off much," Randle said of playing with Murray. "I think we’ll work well together."
