Landon Collins was referring to Eli Apple, who curiously was used on special teams but got zero snaps at cornerback this past Sunday. Apple was benched for disciplinary reasons earlier this season. “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. The other two guys — DRC [Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie] and Jack Rabbit [Janoris Jenkins] — I love those two guys. They play hard. They love what they do. But, that first pick, he’s a cancer.” Then some dude sent that to his Eli Apple’s mom, who wasn’t feeling it.
