Eli Apple Traded to Saints

Recommended Posts

Apple played well the first couple games before his injury. After that, hes clearly been playing banged up. He came back in after limping off the field last night and seemed hobbled the rest of the game. I gained some respect for him this year but he still wasnt doing enough. A 4th is a crapshoot though.

I would tried for a third rounder. A fourth & Seventh is just cheap.

Yeah... Jerry Reese was an awful GM.

The Giants are clearly open for business before the trade deadline .

 

Jenkins and OV could be next at this rate !

 

Are we becoming the Raiders ?

 

( oh and fuck Jerry Reese , Apple was never worthy of a high first round pick )

They should be listening to all deals. Everyone is expendable....for reasonable deals and guys who are untradable. Only smart deals should be made...but they should not be done with apple

Yeah I would imagine we could have done better... but the injury last night might have dropped his stock

4th and a 7th sounds about right for a mediocre player with just a couple more years under contract.

 

Still so young though, and he's been arguably the best (least bad) corner on the team this year. As if this season wasn't already ugly enough.

 

May as well trade Jenkins too, for whatever we can get. He is a gamer, but his effort and concentration clearly lapse when not playing in a competitive situation.

Hes not that good and has one year left on his contract. Were lucky we got anything for him.

Definitely not worth what we got him at, just another reach/project from Reese. He should have been released after last season with the shit he pulled.

Yeah Apple was a huge reach, I remember at the time being pretty pissed because all draft pundits had the guy going in the 25-30 pick range of the first round.

 

Here JR was taking him with pick 10.

 

I don't know what it was but JR sure did love to take "Potentially high ceiling but very inconsistent" type of players. Apple, Flowers, Phillips, JPP, Randle.

 

I remember all these guys draft profiles sounded the same "could be a great player, but has to learn the game first" type of thing.

 

Fuck just draft guys ready for the NFL, not potentially ready in 5 years.

How do the Raiders get a 1st rounder for Amari Cooper and we cant get shit above a 4th Rounder?

 

Because Cooper was once considered a top 5 WR in the NFL.

 

Apple was once considered a fucking head case locker room cancer, who occasionally plays a good game at corner.

I think all of us were stunned when the pick was made but excused Reese because were just fans and they do this for a living.

This was after Reese let it be known for his love affair for Leonard Floyd and Jack Conklin, both of whom went 8th and 9th.

 

God, that guy sucked after 2009
