Giants suspend Eli Apple for remainder of season

  • Giants safety Landon Collins and cornerback Eli Apple

The Giants selected Apple with the 10th overall pick in 2016, but after a promising rookie year, his 2017 season has been full of drama.

The feud started a few weeks back when Apple denied having conversations with Collins about his behavior, which included him tweeting from the sideline during a loss to the Dallas Cowboys on December 14. Mathews, who joined the team's practice squad on December 6, has yet to play in an National Football League regular-season game.

Collins said he's talked to Apple about his maturity and the impact his attitude has on the locker room.

"There's only just one corner that needs to grow, and we all know who that is", Collins said. "That would be the only person I would change out of our secondary".

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. Besides, the other two guys, (Rodgers-Cromartie) and (Jenkins), I love those two guys. Apple got into hot water with the Giants when he retweeted video of a touchdown against his own team by Cowboys running back and former Buckeyes teammate Rod Smith, also violating the NFL's social media policy. They play hard. They love what they do. Apple denied ever talking to Collins. "That first pick, he's a cancer". Apple was declared inactive for a game shortly after his mother underwent brain surgery. As recently as Wednesday morning he was quoted by ESPN saying Apple had "given up" on the team because he was sitting on the bench and not standing on the sideline during Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.

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

Apple played just seven snaps during Sunday's 23-0 defeat at Arizona, all on special teams.
