Landon Collins calls New York Giants teammate 'a cancer'

On Tuesday, teammate Landon Collins referred to Apple as a "cancer" on a NY radio show, likely in response to the time the second-year corner implied Collins was lying about offering him counsel earlier this month.

"We have suspended Eli for a pattern of behavior that is conduct detrimental to the team", Abrams said in a release. "That would be the only person I would change out of our secondary". 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.

Collins was on "The Michael Kay Show on 98.7 ESPN New York" when he made the comment, stating that he "loves" fellow defensive backs Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Janoris Jenkins, but has an issue with Apple.

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

Having been suspended for repeated conduct detrimental to the team, NY now have a chance to void the guaranteed money on Apple's contract and potentially part ways with him without fear of eating a large chunk of dead cap.

The Giants, who are 2-13 this season, mercifully play the last game of their season on Sunday. They play hard; they love what they do.

"I met with Coach Spags and Eli this morning and I apologized for the things I said yesterday".

But when Apple was asked how Collins' reassurance had affected him, Apple said the safety hadn't done what he said.

He will miss the Giants' regular season finale vs. the Redskins on Sunday. Those remarks came on the heels of one report that Apple threatened to walk out on the team after his play was criticized and another that the 2016 first-round pick is "disliked" within the organization.

The former Alabama standout told NJ Advance Media earlier this month that he and Apple have had sitdowns over the cornerback's struggles.
