Giants' Collins sorry for alluding to Apple as 'a cancer'

Eli Apple avoids questions about if he's a'cancer by saying he had to go to the bathroom

December 10, 2017: New York Giants strong safety Landon Collins (21) warms up before playing against the Dallas Cowboys in an NFL football game in East Rutherford, N.J.

The latest episode involving Apple came earlier this week, when teammate Landon Collins called him "a cancer", comments for which he later apologized.

Apple played in 11 games this season with seven starts. The 10th-overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Apple has been in the Giants doghouse all season it seems. Apple did not play any defensive snaps in that game. Besides that, the other two guys, DRC (Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie) and Jackrabbit (Janoris Jenkins), I love those two guys. 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.

The Giants fired GM Jerry Reese - who drafted Apple - and coach Ben McAdoo on December 4. With just one final game to do, the Giants sit at 2-13 and find themselves on a five-game losing streak. They play hard. They love what they do.

New York Giants cornerback Eli Apple (28) and interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo. "But that first pick, I don't think... he's a cancer". If the guarantees are voided, it becomes significantly easier for the Giants to jettison Apple after this season. He's dealt with a hip injury and had a reported blow-up at coaches during a critical film session. The following day, Apple denied the conversations ever occurred.

Last week, Collins told ESPN Radio that Apple had to "grow up" and was not willing to serve as Apple's mentor. A new regime might want to rid the team of problems and start over. "I guess he don't remember things", Collins said.
