Giants Safety Landon Collins Calls First-Round CB Eli Apple a 'Cancer'

The news safety Landon Collins apologized for calling Apple a cancer in a NY radio interview Tuesday.

The feud started a few weeks back when Apple denied having conversations with Collins about his behavior, which included him tweeting from the sideline during a loss to the Dallas Cowboys on December 14.

December 17, 2017: New York Giants cornerback Eli Apple (24) is shaken up after a play against the Philadelphia Eagles during the first half of an NFL football game in East Rutherford, N.J.

Collins, who was placed on injured reserve Tuesday with a fractured forearm, had to be restrained from confronting Apple in the past few weeks, according to a recent report by NJ Advance Media.

Obviously, one player calling another "a cancer" like this is not something that happens every day, and it's even more freaky that the two are teammates. Collins appeared on the radio show earlier this week and openly criticized teammate Eli Apple.

"That first-round pick. he's a cancer", Collins said. Apple has struggled on the field while his team has gone 2-13.

Apple has not commented on Collins' remarks. "That would be the only person I would change out of our secondary group".

He found himself benched again in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.

Collins went on to say, That first pick. Apple was inactive for the game, but league rules forbid tweeting from the sideline regardless of whether a player is active or not.

So how did that go over with Apple? The following day, Apple denied that the conversations ever occurred.

It's been a significant drop-off for Apple from an impressive rookie year on a playoff team. "Have a good one".

It's been a disappointing season for the Giants, who many predicted would reach the playoffs.
