Landon Collins On Teammate Eli Apple: He's A “Cancer”

New York Giants cornerback Eli Apple is shaken up after a play against the Philadelphia Eagles during the first half of an NFL football game Sunday Dec. 17 2017 in East Rutherford N.J

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.

"There is only one corner who needs to grow up and we all know who that is", Collins said during a visit to 98.7 FM in NY, via Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com. 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. Besides, the other two guys, [Rodgers-Cromarie] and [Jenkins], I love those two guys.

Soon after, following a loss to the Eagles, Collins went on ESPN New York radio and said of Apple, "I think he finally understands that even if you're a first-rounder, you can always be cut". They play hard; they love what they do.

"(Landon and I) had a quick conversation this morning and then I had a quick conversation with Eli", said Spagnuolo. With the implication that he was a liar, Collins reportedly had to be restrained by his teammates from going after Apple, per NJ.com. 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.

Apple has not commented on Collins' remarks.




Apple's season has been filled with disappointments, the latest coming this Sunday in a 23-0 loss to the Cardinals where he was relegated to special teams and did not play a defensive snap the entire game.

Collins' run of 47 consecutive starts will end on Sunday, with second-year pro Andrew Adams expected to start in the season finale versus the visiting Washington Redskins (7-8).

Collins underwent surgery on Christmas and the Giants placed one of their team leaders - not to mention one of their best players - on injured reserve, ending his season.

The Giants (2-13) have had a disastrous season, which resulted in the sacking of former head coach Ben McAdoo after week 13.
