Giants Safety Landon Collins called teammate Eli Apple a 'cancer'

Giants place Landon Collins on IR promote Derrick Mathews to 53-man roster

Giants Pro Bowl safety Landon Collins has fired another shot in the ever volatile Giants camp, as he stated today in a radio interview that first-round cornerback Eli Apple is a "cancer" to the team.

Apple was notified of the suspension this afternoon in a meeting with interim general manager Kevin Abrams and interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo.

Apple, who was the 10th overall pick in the 2016 draft, did not play a single defensive snap in Sunday's 23-0 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

"There's one corner that has to establish and needs to grow, and we all know who that is", Collins said when asked for his appraisal of the Giants' secondary.

Apple was with the team and on the practice field Wednesday, but when approached for comments afterwards, the 24-year-old dismissed reporters, telling them he needed to go "take a [expletive]". He and Apple met separately with Spagnuolo and then all three talked. "That first pick, he's a cancer".

I guess he don't remember things, "Collins said on December 14 when reporters relayed Apple's reaction". It's fair to wonder if Apple will be back with the Giants in 2018.

An report over the weekend detailed personal issues as the forefront for an explanation on Apple's attitude and season - which includes a falling out with his stepfather.

The Giants, who are 2-13 this season, mercifully play the last game of their season on Sunday. Coach Ben McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese already have been fired, but not before benching quarterback Eli Manning for a game, ending the second-longest streak of starts by a quarterback in National Football League history at 210 regular-season games.

At 2-13, NY has more losses than any other season in its history.

Apple's mother, Annie, underwent brain surgery in November.
