New York Giants cornerback Eli Apple has received a clean slate from the team's new regime. He's also been given a reprieve from teammate Landon Collins, who called him a "cancer" late last year. Everything was copacetic as Apple and the Giants reported for the first day of the team's offseason workout program on Monday. Apple spent most of his offseason in California with several of his Giants teammates, and some relationships were mended. "We talked. Definitely we talked. We've definitely buried the hatchet a while ago," Collins said on a conference call with reporters. "That's my guy, my brother. I'm always going to have his back. We knew what kind of caliber player he is. He knows what kind of caliber player I am. We're just trying to get to work and make this season go." The Giants are trying to rebound from a disastrous 3-13 season where everything seemingly went wrong. Three cornerbacks were suspended at different points of the season for their conduct. Apple had trouble with teammates and coaches during the troubling year, on and off the field. But the former first-round pick remains on the roster after ending last year by being suspended and told to stay away from the team.
