Report: Eli Apple Signs With Las Vegas Raiders
Former New Orleans Saints cornerback Eli Apple is heading to Vegas to join the Raiders.
After the Saints claimed cornerback Janoris Jenkins (who has 1 year left on his deal at $11.25 million) off waivers late last season, and Apple on his way to free agency, his future with the team came into question.
Apple arrived in New Orleans via a trade in October of 2018, as the Saints sent the Giants a 4th round draft pick in exchange.
He became a starter opposite Marshon Lattimore, an upgrade over Ken Crawley.
As Apple battled an injury late last season, Jenkins slipped into his starting role.
