Giants Pro Bowler Landon Collins Called Teammate Eli Apple 'A Cancer'

Giants Pro Bowler Landon Collins Called Teammate Eli Apple 'A Cancer'

In his weekly spot Tuesday on ESPN New York FM-98.7, Collins was asked by host Bob Wischusen what changes to the Giants' secondary he would suggest for next season if approached by the team's new general manager and/or its new head coach. "Just want him to know I'm always there for him".

Following practice, the team announced that Apple had been suspended for the final week of the regular season, making him the third cornerback to be suspended this season joining Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Janoris Jenkins, who each served one-game bans.

Collins was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Of course, the last time Collins said he had met with Apple - on December 13 - the conversations were denied by Apple the following day.

"There's one corner that has to establish [himself] and needs to grow, and we all know who that is. That would be the only person I would change out of our secondary".

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 other two guys - DRC and Jackrabbit - I love those two guys. They play hard; they love what they do.

Given the recent on-field performance of both players, it would be something of a surprise if the Giants sided with Apple over Collins in this instance. "But that first pick, I don't think... he's a cancer". Apple was inactive for the game, but league rules forbid tweeting from the sideline regardless of whether a player is active or not.

Apple said the next day that he had not spoken to Collins about anything. His mom underwent brain surgery during the season.

It's been a disappointing season for the Giants, who many predicted would reach the playoffs. After bringing new meaning to the phrase "sophomore slump" nine games into the season, Apple was called out during a film session, to which he responded by threatening to leave the team facility.
