Report: Giants are likely done with Eli Apple
The New York Giants sound very done with cornerback Eli Apple.
The former first-round pick appears to have already worn out his welcome within the organization, at least according to ESPN’s Josina Anderson. Despite the fact that the team does not have a new general manager or coach in place, a decision on Apple has reportedly already been made.
Even though the new #Giants GM & head coach are not in place– thus nothing is certain yet–one team source remains very adamant on their feelings about CB Eli Apple: "He will not be in an NYG uniform next year. Dude is done with NYG. Done."

It sounds like, in theory, new management could come in and really fight for Apple’s future with the organization. They’d likely be fighting against the wind in doing so, though.
Apple is ending the 2017 season suspended, with an argument with the coaching staff reportedly a last straw. Things must be bad if the Giants are eager to give up on a former first-round pick after just two years.
