Giants suspend Eli Apple for remainder of season

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.

Giants cornerback Eli Apple waits for play to resume during a preseason game at MetLife Stadium on August 26, 2017. 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.

After playing most of Week 15 against the Philadelphia Eagles, Apple did not play any defensive snaps last Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. The other two guys - DRC and Jackrabbit - I love those two guys.

"I met with Coach Spags and Eli this morning and I apologized for the things I said yesterday". Collins also praised the aforementioned veterans in virtually the same breath as calling out Apple.

The Giants fired GM Jerry Reese - who drafted Apple - and coach Ben McAdoo on December 4.

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

The former Alabama All-American won't be in the Giants' starting lineup for the first time in his three National Football League seasons when NY closes its 2017 campaign against the Washington Redskins. But that first pick? They play hard. They love what they do.

That's a far different tone than the one Collins has used toward Apple in the past two weeks.

The cover man is dealing with plenty of drama off the field, too, but National Football League teams are littered with players facing complex personal lives. He's dealt with a hip injury and had a reported blow-up at coaches during a critical film session.

Apple said the next day that he had not spoken to Collins about anything. I guess he don't remember things, "Collins said on December 14 when reporters relayed Apple's reaction".

"Look, we're all grown men in there", Collins said. A new regime might want to rid the team of problems and start over.
