Giants suspend CB Eli Apple for final game of season

Giants suspend CB Eli Apple for final game of season

Apple's season has been filled with disappointments, the latest coming this Sunday in a 23-0 loss to the Cardinals where he was relegated to special teams and did not play a defensive snap the entire game.

The 2016 National Football League draft has already produced four Pro Bowlers out of its top five picks, but Apple has been on the other end of the spectrum. Besides, the other two guys, (Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie) and (Janoris Jenkins), I love those two guys.

Collins seemed to allude to those problems when he said he'd talked to Apple after the tweeting incident.

While there was tension between Apple and former head coach Ben McAdoo, it appears that wasn't the entire problem with his time in NY.

NY went to the playoffs last season, but 2017 has been a nightmare for the Giants.

While Apple's draft status and ability seem to suggest he has what it takes to play in the National Football League, it remains to be seen if he'll still be a Giant next season.

While his on-field play has left much to be desired on its own, it's Apple's impact in the locker room that already has Giants fans wondering what in the world their team was thinking when they spent a top-10 pick on the former Ohio State Buckeye.

Declining population knocks IL down to 6th-largest state
Census officials confirmed IL lost its spot as the fifth-largest state in the wake of Pennsylvania's modest population growth. From July 2016 to July 2017, almost 115,000 Illinoisans left for other states on net, according to the Census data.


That's a far different tone than the one Collins has used toward Apple in the past two weeks.

Apple said the next day that he had not spoken to Collins about anything. "But that first pick, I don't think... he's a cancer".

Apple has been going through personal issues in his life recently as well.

The New York Post reported last month that Apple almost left the team facility after he was criticized for making bad plays during a film session.

Last week, Collins told ESPN Radio that Apple had to "grow up" and was not willing to serve as Apple's mentor.

"Landon? No", Apple said.

It's hard to imagine Apple being a priority for next season when the new regime is in place, considering his first-round status will count against Reese's resume, not his successor's. We'll see where things go from here, but having an impressive and respected veteran like Collins call you a "cancer" in a radio interview probably isn't a good sign for your career.
