  • Rookie of the Year Marshon Lattimore expects Giants' Eli Apple to 'bounce back'

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...rt_river_index

    Excerpt: "Giants cornerback Eli Apple and Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore were teammates at Ohio State from 2014-15. Both former Buckeyes were first-round picks, with Apple selected by the Giants with the 10th pick in the 2016 draft and Lattimore taken 11th overall in 2017.

    That's where the similarities end in their NFL careers.

    Apple showed promise during an inconsistent rookie year before a disastrous second season that was plagued by issues on and off the field. Meanwhile, Lattimore emerged as one of the top cornerbacks in the NFL, earning a Pro Bowl selection and the Defensive Rookie of the Year award.

    Apple and Lattimore remain close, although their conversations typically aren't about football.

    "That's my guy," Lattimore told NJ Advance Media on the red carpet of the NFL Honors awards show on Saturday. "I've been talking to him. We don't really talk about football too much. We try to stay away from that. He's good."" Read more...

    someone out there might "value" him but they wouldn't give him much value. if you think we're getting more than a 5th round pick at best for this guy you're crazy. even great players rarely get traded for 1st round picks and a franchise QB was traded for a 2nd rounder this past season and just signed the richest deal for QB in NFL history. since a 5th round picks generally don't become more than backup caliber players we'd be better served to see if he can turn it around next season with a clean slate and a new coaching staff/GM. if not, then too bad. it seems we always draft underachieving or injury prone CBs for some reason, save for maybe corey webster but that was many years ago.

    Oh that would be great. Dare we dream. If we can get a 2nd rd pick for this miss of a 1st rd pick I'd jump at it in a N.Y. minute. Hope they could get something positive and ship him out.

    he has no value whatsoever after last season and how much of a head case he was. instead of giving him up for a 6th or 7th round pick we'd be better off seeing if he can get his s**t together next season with a new coaching staff.

    Let the rotten apple play for his beagles. Guarantee they straighten him out and if not then he can disrupt their locker room.

    Apple just doesn't have it and never will. Another huge mistake my Reese.
    Better coaching?
