Eli Apple might be a nightmare for the New York Giants, but he’s a dream come true for the New York tabloids.
The Giants talented but troubled cornerback has been a popular punching back during his team’s dreadful 2017 season. Apple’s unprofessional behavior led to him being inactive for four consecutive weeks earlier this season, and a spat with a coach Wednesday prompted the Giants to suspend their 2016 first-round pick for their season finale. Furthermore, when asked about the altercation, Apple reportedly told reporters, “I gotta take a s–t” and left the Giants locker room.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at New York’s newspaper scene Thursday morning:
Never a dull moment in the Big Apple.
Given his tumultuous season and the fact that teammate Landon Collins says he’s a “cancer” in the locker room, Apple might’ve played his last game as a member of the Giants. Although, there might be hope for the 22-year-old if he just stops listening to his mom.
