Landon Collins Calls Teammate a "Cancer"

New York Giants second-year cornerback Eli Apple has been suspended for the team's season finale against the Washington Redskins, the team announced this afternoon.

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but it might also cause cancer. The G-Men have paid Apple a boatload of cash to play the game at the highest level, and the return on investment has been questionable at best in 2017.

Apple played Sunday against the Cardinals but only on special teams. Besides, the other two guys, [Rodgers-Cromarie] and [Jenkins], I love those two guys.

"(Landon and I) had a quick conversation this morning and then I had a quick conversation with Eli", said Spagnuolo.

Collins' comments follow a recent interview in which Apple denied Collins' statement that he had several conversations about the young cornerback's struggles. With just one final game to do, the Giants sit at 2-13 and find themselves on a five-game losing streak.

A disastrous second season for Eli Apple has come to an inglorious end.

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

That's a far different tone than the one Collins has used toward Apple in the past two weeks.

Of course, the last time Collins said he had met with Apple - on December 13 - the conversations were denied by Apple the following day. They play hard. They love what they do.

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.

Apple was inactive for four consecutive games, with the reasons ranging from personal reasons, injury (hip and back) and presumed disciplinary action stemming from behavior issues.

Collins tagged Apple in the post, and added a "100" emoji for extra effect.

"Landon? No", Apple said. "I guess he don't remember things", Collins said. I don't want to start no controversy with my teammate.
