Giants suspend Eli Apple for season finale vs. Redskins

On Wednesday, the Giants announced that the defensive back has been suspended for Week 17 after a pattern of behavior that has been deemed conduct detrimental to the team.

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.

"There's only just one corner that. needs to grow, and we all know who that is", Collins said.

Collins' comments follow a recent interview in which Apple denied Collins' statement that he had several conversations about the young cornerback's struggles. "That first pick, he's a cancer".

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

Collins would later apologise to the 22-year-old during a team meeting.

Imitating a Trump supporter, Chappelle exclaimed, "Man, Donald Trump's gonna go to Washington and he's gonna fight for us". Apparently one new Netflix special wasn't enough for Dave Chappelle .

The feud between the two teammates began to boil after Collins said he had spoken to Apple over the course of the season about his attitude following a loss to the Cowboys, in which Apple retweeted a Twitter account celebrating Rod Smith icing the Giants with an 81-yard touchdown.

Before the suspension, the Giants would have had to eat close to $9 million in dead money, and pay out about $4.3 million in combined base salary for 2018 and 2019. With just one final game to do, the Giants sit at 2-13 and find themselves on a five-game losing streak.

With the way Apple's relationship with the team and his teammates appears to be going, it will be best for the two sides to part ways during the offseason whether it be by trade or release.

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. Nagging injuries, a couple of hard performances and then a major surgery for his mother has led to a 2017 season for the young cornerback to forget.

Last Sunday in Arizona, Apple played only on special teams.
