Giants suspend Apple for finale for 'detrimental' conduct

Giants suspend Apple for finale for 'detrimental' conduct

Apparently, Collins met with Apple and Giants interim coach Steve Spagnuolo on Wednesday morning and offered a mea culpa of sorts for how this played out.

"We have suspended Eli for a pattern of behavior that is conduct detrimental to the team", interim GM Kevin Abrams said, via the team's official website.

While his on-field play has left much to be desired on its own, it's Apple's impact in the locker room that already has Giants fans wondering what in the world their team was thinking when they spent a top-10 pick on the former Ohio State Buckeye.

"There is only one corner who needs to grow up and we all know who that is", Collins told ESPN radio on Tuesday.

The feud between Collins and Apple took another turn Wednesday when, as the Giants were on the practice field in preparation for Sunday's season finale, Collins took to social media and issued an apology. "That first pick, he's a cancer".

Earlier today, the online retailing giant issued a press release noting that the 2017 holiday shopping season was its biggest yet. The hockey puck look alike snagged more sales than any other product made by any manufacturer during the holiday shopping period.

Of course, the last time Collins said he had met with Apple - on December 13 - the conversations were denied by Apple the following day.

"I apologized for the things I said yesterday", the Pro Bowl safety posted on Twitter.

The suspension comes a day after teammate Landon Collins called Apple a "cancer" to the team.

The New York Giants have been a mess this year, struggling their way to a 2-13 record through their first 15 games. It's fair to wonder if Apple will be back with the Giants in 2018. 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. That may not seem overly unusual outside of the fact that Apple was a first round pick in 2016 and, after a lot of on-field team as a rookie, he has disappeared amid disciplinary measures and general benching.

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