Landon Collins Sorry For Calling Eli Apple a Cancer ... That's My Bro!!

Eli Apple has been benched and relegated to special teams duty in recent weeks

New York Giants second-year cornerback Eli Apple has been suspended for the team's season finale against the Washington Redskins, the team announced this afternoon.

N.Y. Giants star Landon Collins is apologizing for his recent comments referring to teammate Eli Apple as "a cancer". saying he met with Eli in person and cleared the air.

So how did that go over with Apple?

Apple, a former top-10 draft pick, has come under fire late in the season for his poor performances on the field and there have been questions over whether the Giants will retain him for the 2018 season, according to ESPN. Apple did not play any defensive snaps in that game. Besides, the other two guys, [Dominique Rodgers-Cromarie] and [Janoris Jenkins], I love those two guys.

"(Landon and I) had a quick conversation this morning and then I had a quick conversation with Eli", said Spagnuolo.

Head coach Ben McAdoo was sacked earlier in the month.

The Giants, who are 2-13 this season, mercifully play the last game of their season on Sunday. "That first pick.he's a cancer".

The TD tweet infuriated Giants' fans, but was only part of Apple's problems this season. They play hard; they love what they do.

Family and financial issues aside, Apple is now at a crossroads.

The New York Post reported last month that Apple almost left the team facility after he was criticized for making bad plays during a film session. Earlier this month, Collins said that he'd had conversations with Apple about the cornerback's struggles but, the next day, Apple denied that he had ever talked to Collins about any of that. Apple appeared in the locker room at least three more times, but did not make himself available before the media period ended.
