Eli Apple is vowing to mend his ways after being given a second chance by the New York Giants.

The 22-year-old cornerback who was the 10th pick in the 2016 draft on Monday promised to be a better player Derrick Nnadi Color Rush Jersey , a better person, and a better teammate as the Giants start a rebuilding process under new coach Pat Shurmur after a 3-13 season.

It was a year Apple would like to forget, both on and off the field. He started only seven games, was inactive for four and was suspended for the final game of the schedule after getting into an argument with the coaching staff. The Ohio State product also got in a beef with Landon Collins that ended with the star safety calling him a cancer.

It was ugly and highlighted a year in which Apple dealt with a crisis at home: His mother had brain surgery.

"Was I embarrassed? Of course," Apple said after the Giants held a two-hour practice at the first of their 10 organized team activities. "Nobody wants to go out the way I went out. I mean, it was all over the place, so of course.

Many wondered whether the Giants would want Apple back after his second season, one that many had forecast would provide a great leap forward for him.

What changed, though, was the Giants shaking up things after last season. Dave Gettleman was hired to replace Jerry Reese as general manager and Shurmur replaced interim coach Steve Spagnuolo, who had taken over when Ben McAdoo was fired in early December.

One of the first things Gettleman did was tell him everyone was starting with a clean slate.

"I'm just going to fine tune everything, come in with a different attitude and just be positive out there on the field Dave Robinson Jersey , and just do everything that I can to make myself better as a player, and everybody else better as a team," Apple said.

There is no doubt Apple needs to improve. He finished with 49 tackles and two fumble recoveries last season. He did not have an interception and has only one in two seasons.

The Giants showed some faith in him by releasing veteran Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie in the offseason.

Apple said he's trying to mature and improve how he communicates with coaches and teammates. He said he has patched up his relationship with Collins.

Despite all the problems, Apple said his confidence was not shaken. He admits being blindsided by all the attention he got. His goal this season is to work hard, be positive and try to be on an even keel.

"Maybe I got a little too confident a little bit in thinking I was going to make a big step," he said. "It's about just taking it day by day and continuing to be patient, and just know my time's going to come."

For now, Apple has an idea who he is.

"I think I'm a 22 year-old guy, just ready to get to work and continue to work hard and just build on that," he said.

NOTES: Shurmur threw out the first pitch at the Mets game with Arizona on Sunday. It was short and wide toward the visitors dugout. It was not as bad as the 50 Cent mode , but it was not good.

"Yeah, well http://www.saintsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-tre_quan-smith-jersey , I was wasting a pitch" Shurmur quipped, adding he has a new appreciation for baseball while insisting he did not have a case of jitters. "That's what I was doing, like some good pitchers might.

"There are certain things that you try to not redo." ... First-round draft pick and new father Saquon Barkley showed some deft moves off the field when asked about combining football and family life.

"It actually kind of sucks a little bit - well that came off wrong at first," he said. "It kind of sucks because I'm not with my daughter as much as I would love to be because obviously training camp, rookie minicamp, OTAs and then I had to go to L.A. for the Rookie Premiere. But I get to see her this weekend, so that is going to be great to be able to hold her again."

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The Miami Dolphins‘ undefeated start to the season came with some early excitement heading into their matchup at New England.

That buzz went flat again — in a familiar place — following Miami’s lopsided 38-7 loss to their AFC East rivals .

The Dolphins (3-1) were looking to improve to 4- 0 for the first time since 1995 — Hall of Fame coach Don Shula’s final season.

Instead, they were humbled in every phase during Sunday’s dizzying setback.

Ryan Tannehill had been a steadying presence for the Dolphins’ offense during the first three weeks of the season, completing 73 percent of his passes for seven touchdowns with just two interceptions, improving to 10-1 over 11 starts in that span.

But he regressed against the Patriots (2-2), looking every bit like the quarterback that is now 0-6 in games at Foxborough.

Tannehill finished 11 for 20 for 100 yards and an interception. He was pulled in the fourth quarter in favor of Brock Osweiler. Osweiler connected with Frank Gore for a 6-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter for Miami’s lone score.

“Not a lot went right for us. It’s tough to say one thing at this point because we didn’t really execute any part of the game plan that we wanted to Youth Nick Nelson Jersey ,” Tannehill said. “To say one thing is going to be difficult this time, and I don’t think it will ever be one thing.”

In his six losses at New England, he has just 837 passing yards, four TDs and two INTs.

With Tannehill ineffective, the offense struggled to make first downs. It went 3 for 11 on third down while managing just 172 yards.

“We didn’t come out and start the game like we wanted to,” Tannehill said. “We didn’t convert on third down, we didn’t take care of the football, we didn’t gain yardage. We didn’t do anything we wanted to, so lot of work to do.”

Miami also relapsed to a team prone to self-inflicted wounds, amassing 10 penalties for 89 yards. Last season the Dolphins’ offense led the league in penalties (65) and penalty yards (553).

As bad as it looked, running back Kenyan Drake said it was just a shot to the system and not something they can’t bounce back from.

“We’re in a good seat,” Drake said. I mean Authentic Josh Rosen Jersey , this loss hurts. You know, we wanted to definitely get a ‘W,’ but we’re looking to get things rolling in the other quarter (of the season). So, the thing is we’ve got to get those things corrected.”

FINDING POSITIVES

If there was one positive takeaway from Sunday’s loss, it might have come on the defensive side of the ball.

The Dolphins managed to pick off quarterback Tom Brady twice. Cornerback Bobby McCain snared one on Brady’s deep, third down pass over the middle in the first quarter.

It was Brady’s third interception of the season. He didn’t throw his third interception last season until Week 11 against Miami. Minkah Fitzpatrick got the other in the fourth quarter .

It marked the Miami defense’s ninth interception this season. It had nine all last season.

It’s why Miami linebacker Kiko Alonso said there is still plenty to be excited about in their locker room going forward.

“Although it was ugly, it is just one loss,” Alonso said. “We are on to Cincinnati and obviously we have to get better.”

NOT CLOSE

The Dolphins entered the day having won all three of their games this season by one score or less — amassing a record of 16-5 under coach Adam Gase.

They are 3-13 in games decided by more than one score.

INJURY UPDATE

Miami was already down a safety with Reshad Jones sitting out Sunday’s game with a shoulder injury.

Add cornerback Bobby McCain to the list of players on the mend after he left the loss with a knee injury. Dolphins center Daniel Kilgore also left the game in the first half with an arm injury.

Gase didn’t have an update on the severity of McCain’s ailment.

“Obviously him not coming back into the game wasn’t a really great sign,” Gase said.
