Belichick eventually said that the quarterback had missed OTAs in past years.
If you go back a few years, Belichick said, there was times when he wasn’t — I mean look, again, it’s a voluntary program. So that’s what it is. You’ll have to ask him about it.
Oh, Belichick almost came close to actually saying something. But, once again, nothing. Which still says something about his overall irritation level when it comes to this topic.
Hubbard is a former lacrosse player who was also a high school safety. He isn’t as athletic as some of the other players at the position on the draft board, but plays with intensity, knows how to shed blockers, and understands what offenses are trying to do.
The Giants promised Apple a clean slate after Pat Shurmur was hired as the team’s head coach, which Apple said he appreciated and which has started getting filled with far more complimentary assessments. Collins said Monday that Apple is growing up, doing his thing and playing great ball during the team’s offseason program while a new teammate had an even more rhapsodic review.
Cornerback William Gay thinks Apple can do a lot more than just bounce back to playing a role for the Giants this season.
Very athletic guy. I watched him from afar being in Pittsburgh, and then also when he was at Ohio State, Gay said, via the New York Post. You just see the things that he can do on the field. I’m ready to help him any type of way that I can, because I want to be in his speech when he becomes a Hall of Famer, and say, ‘I had an old guy William Gay that helped me a little bit.’ I’m gonna give him everything I can, but from the looks of it, he’s ready to go. And I just love his enthusiasm every day on the practice field.
