Giants Safety Landon Collins Alludes to Eli Apple as a “Cancer”

Landon Collins joined Bob Wischusen, who was filling in for Michael Kay, on ESPN Radio in New York this afternoon. Wischusen asked Collins, a Pro Bowl safety for the Giants, what he would tell new management about the team’s secondary. Collins roasted Apple, who claims he and other teammates engaged in “sit-downs’’ with Apple “multiple times’’ to fix his behavior.

“There’s one corner that has to establish [himself] and needs to grow, and we all know who that is,” Collins said. “That would be the only person I would change out of our secondary group. Besides the other two guys — DRC and Jackrabbit — I love those two guys. They play hard. They love what they do. But, that first pick … he’s a cancer.”

Collins comments come just a couple weeks after his teammate was fined an undisclosed amount of money for tweeting on the sideline during a loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

When asked if he still wanted to be a part of the team following the incident, Apple said that he did.

“Of course. I’m blessed to be where I am right now,” Apple said. “I appreciate everything being here, alive. Football is something I love to do. It’s a blessing. You don’t want to take it for granted. I definitely want to be here, to be honest.”

The 22-year old top-10 pick didn’t play a single defensive snap in Sunday’s 23-0 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
