Giants safety Landon Collins straight up calls out Eli Apple

Giants safety Landon Collins straight up calls out Eli Apple

The team announced on Wednesday that it has suspended cornerback Eli Apple for Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins. 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.

The feud between the two teammates began to boil after Collins said he had spoken to Apple over the course of the season about his attitude following a loss to the Cowboys, in which Apple retweeted a Twitter account celebrating Rod Smith icing the Giants with an 81-yard touchdown. Besides that, the other two guys, DRC (Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie) and Jackrabbit (Janoris Jenkins), I love those two guys.

Apple also apparently refused to work with the scout team during Wednesday's practice and got into an argument with the coaching staff, according to ESPN and NFL Network reports.

While there was tension between Apple and former head coach Ben McAdoo, it appears that wasn't the entire problem with his time in NY. "That first pick, he's a cancer".

If Eli Apple is trying to keep his name out of the headlines, he can't be trying very hard.

The TD tweet infuriated Giants' fans, but was only part of Apple's problems this season.

Last week, Collins told ESPN Radio that Apple had to "grow up" and was not willing to serve as Apple's mentor.

Family and financial issues aside, Apple is now at a crossroads. 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.

When approached at his locker after the game and asked why he only played 7 snaps (all on special teams), Apple said: "It was a coach's decision".

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.
