Landon Collins Sorry For Calling Eli Apple a Cancer ... That's My Bro!!

A brutal year for Eli Apple came to an end Wednesday as the Giants suspended their second-year corner

Heading into the predraft process in 2016, few doubted Apple's physical tools and raw talent, but there were concerns about his need for refinement, both as a player and in terms of maturity.

That's a far different tone than the one Collins has used toward Apple in the past two weeks. Two days after enduring a 23-0 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, another member of the Giants secondary, safety Landon Collins, went on the radio and called Apple one of the worst things you could call a teammate-a cancer.

Apple also apparently refused to work with the scout team during Wednesday's practice and got into an argument with the coaching staff, according to ESPN and NFL Network reports. It has been a hard second season in the National Football League for Apple, who was the Giants first-round pick a year ago. His lack of on-field production has been frustrating, but that pales in comparison to what his off-field behavior has done to his chances of living up to the high expectations of being a top-10 draft pick.

With the way Apple's relationship with the team and his teammates appears to be going, it will be best for the two sides to part ways during the offseason whether it be by trade or release.

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. "We need him to want to be here and not fighting against us or fighting against the coaches, because if he's fighting against the coaches or the organization or whatever he's fighting against in his head, we don't need him fighting us because that causes conflict". Earlier this month, Collins said that he'd had conversations with Apple about the cornerback's struggles but, the next day, Apple denied that he had ever talked to Collins about any of that.

"Landon? No", Apple said.

"Is that what he said?" After that meeting, Collins offered up a public apology. "I don't know. It is what it is". I know I have, and I know what I did.
