The latest Giants player to offer advice to CB Eli Apple was WR Odell Beckham Jr., and he made it known to the world on Twitter.
Apple intially posted a tweet aimed at those who have spoke bad about him this season, and that he would prove them wrong next year. However, Beckham pleaded his teammate to work hard out of the spotlight and the results will follow.
Brooooo I kno it feels good to tell these ppl off , trust me I would love nothin more than to do the same. But don't waste ur time on these ppl, half the ppl don't even have real accounts. Stop bro, ur better than that. U weren't... and I wasn't... good enough this year.- Odell Beckham Jr (@OBJ_3) January 8, 2018
Just hear me out... it's really not worth it. Please bro, this what they want.... back to the drawin board . Let's get it !- Odell Beckham Jr (@OBJ_3) January 8, 2018
After Apple responded to the tweets, Beckham sent one more telling him to work hard this offseason.
Love brudda ! Let's get up this off season !- Odell Beckham Jr (@OBJ_3) January 8, 2018
Beckham isn't the first player to offer advice to Apple, who was in the news for all the wrong reasons this season. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Brandon Marshall are known to have talked to Apple. Landon Collins also said he spoke with Apple, but that started a back-and-forth debate after Apple denied the claims.
Apple's tumultous season began with an altercation on the sideline between him and former head coach Ben McAdoo. It then led to instances like him threatening to leave the Giants facility after teammates aired him out for a lack of effort during a film session. He was also caught tweeting on the sideline during the Week 14 matchup against the Cowboys at MetLife Stadium.
Off the field, Apple also dealt with his mother, Annie, who had brain surgery in the middle of the season. He missed time from the team to tend to her.
Many have criticized Apple's maturity level at this point in his early career, and because of it, some think his time with the Giants could be over. However, new GM Dave Gettleman said Apple has a clean slate with him after the two met for the first time last week.
