Giants safety Landon Collins blasts teammate Eli Apple

Giants Landon Collins on Eli Apple: 'He's a cancer'

The other two guys - DRC [Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie] and Jack Rabbit [Janoris Jenkins] - I love those two guys.

And if the new general manager and coach decide they can't work with Apple, well, his public undressing by Collins won't help the young corner, shall we say, become the apple of potential trade suitors' eyes.

But he's found himself either benched or just playing special teams regularly this season.

Collins took the opportunity to go at Apple and continue their feud.

"We need him to be here", Collins said, via NJ.com.

"But that first pick. he's a cancer".

Following Trump, Guatemala to Move Embassy to Jerusalem
Guatemala's eastern neighbors, Honduras and Paraguay, are also expected to join the trickle of embassies flowing into Jerusalem. The announcement made Guatemala the first country to follow the United States in saying it was moving its embassy.

Collins has told the media at points this season that he and Apple have had conversations about handling struggles in a professional manner.

The former first round pick struggled through injuries during his second National Football League season, and didn't help himself with off-field controversy. They play hard. They love what they do.

He was finally fined by the Giants for tweeting during the team's loss to the Cowboys in Week 14.

While Apple played zero defensive snaps in Sunday's 23-0 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, essentially serving another benching, Collins started his 47th consecutive game, gutting through a sprained ankle before fracturing his right forearm in the second quarter. This has seen many internal issues arise over the last several weeks beyond the firing of head coach Ben McAdoo. The following day, Apple denied the conversations ever occurred.

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.

It has been a brutal year for the New York Giants and, on the eve of the season finale, the team has a dismal 2-13 record that accurately represents the type of on-field product on display.
