It’s been a bad year for ex-Giants, too.
After the Giants lost in a heartbreaker to the Eagles last Thursday, the misfortune carried over to former New York players last week as well.
Ex-Giants stars Odell Beckham Jr. and Landon Collins both suffered season-ending injuries on Sunday, with the pair tearing their ACL and Achilles’ tendon respectively.
Now, it seems that Giants curse has further compounded, with the news of Eli Apple’s release from the Panthers announced after just two appearances for the team. Apple, who started 15 games for the Saints last season, reportedly left Tuesday’s practice with a hamstring issue and was cut hours later.
Just five years into the NFL, the 2016 No. 10-overall pick is now looking for his fourth team.
Beckham, at least statistically, had struggled this season before his injury. The wideout averaged 53.2 yards per contest in the six games before his injury, which would be the lowest mark of his career over a full season. Collins, in his second season in Washington, has been a stalwart for the struggling franchise, serving as a captain in both seasons.
Another former Giant, linebacker Alec Ogletree, was released by the Jets earlier this month.
