Giants GM Dave Gettleman to meet with Eli Apple: ‘Culture is critical’

Eli Apple

Dave Gettleman has plenty of issues to address in his first offseason as the new general manager of the New York Giants, and Eli Apple’s situation could be among the most pressing.

In an interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio on Wednesday, Gettleman said he is planning to meet with Apple. He indicated that the Giants could move on from the former first-round pick if he isn’t willing to buy into the team’s “culture.”

Even if Apple decides he wants to remain in New York and says all the right things in his meeting with Gettleman, it’s hard to imagine him being able to repair his relationship with all of his teammates. The former Ohio State star ended the 2017 season by being suspended for getting into it with his coaches. While there’s no questioning Apple’s talent, he was reportedly called “the worst teammate I ever had” by one Giants player and has allowed his family drama to affect his work life. A divorce still seems like the most reasonable outcome.
