Giants general manager Dave Gettleman has a modest goal for troubled cornerback Eli Apple.

"I hope he shows up April 9," Gettleman said, referring to the start of the Giants' offseason program.

The fact that Apple's attendance is even in question shows how far the 2016 first-round pick's stock has dropped. Apple had a disastrous second season, which ended prematurely when he was suspended in Week 17 for "a pattern of behavior that is conduct detrimental to the team."

The suspension was levied the day before Gettleman was hired as general manager. Gettleman and Apple met for a half hour the week after the season ended.

"We had a good visit," Gettleman said. "We broke bread, so to speak. I told him 'It's clean. Let's go.' So that's where we're at."
