Eli Apple Suspension: New York Giants Suspend CB For Week 17

Landon Collins #21 of the New York Giants

At least that sounds like the case with New York Giants cornerback Eli Apple. 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. Collins, who was recently named to the Pro Bowl for the second time in as many seasons, offered an unapologetic assessment of Apple, the No. 10 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Those are some strong comments, but they're also somewhat understandable considering the criticism Apple's play has taken this season. Besides that, the other two guys, DRC (Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie) and Jackrabbit (Janoris Jenkins), I love those two guys.

That doesn't mean Collins' sentiment regarding Apple was off base.

Apple's lack of effort was also reportedly put on display in front of the whole team by ex-head coach Ben McAdoo following a loss to the 49ers in Week 10, which led him to almost walking out of the team facility. With just one final game to do, the Giants sit at 2-13 and find themselves on a five-game losing streak.

If Eli Apple is trying to keep his name out of the headlines, he can't be trying very hard. "But that first pick, I don't think... he's a cancer".

Election observers from the organization and European Union had found irregularities that called the result into question. However, The Associated Press has learned that the U.S.is leaning toward recognizing the result of the election.

Collins and Apple have clashed over the last few weeks.

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.

But this wasn't the first time Collins has publicly criticized Apple. A new regime might want to rid the team of problems and start over.

An NJ.com report over the weekend detailed personal issues as the forefront for an explanation on Apple's attitude and season - which includes a falling out with his stepfather.

"Landon? No", Apple said.
