Kenny Moore joined the Eli Apple roast following the Super Bowl
Cornerback, Eli Apple, was subject to a lot of criticism following the Super Bowl and Kenny Moore of the Colts chimed in.
Social media has given everyone a platform to directly share their thoughts with the world, including professional athletes. Now more than ever, players and fans can go to the internet to interact with each other.
Cincinnati Bengals cornerback, Eli Apple, is someone who really enjoys sharing his thoughts on Twitter. Throughout the Bengals playoff run, Apple made himself a villain, attacking his former teams and taunting the players that he defeated in the postseason.
Talking trash on Twitter is always good fun until the day you are caught slipping, then you must endure all of the shots to the self-placed target on your back.
Eli Apple was caught slipping in Super Bowl 56 and everyone on Twitter was ready to send shots his way. It wasn’t just fans, but also fellow NFL Players.

Players from multiple teams chimed in to criticize Apple’s performance, creating a moment of unity at Apple’s expense. That’s what happens when someone makes themselves a villain.
Apple had a tough game, giving up numerous catches, recording a critical penalty, and ultimately surrendering the game-winning touchdown on a goal-line fade to Cooper Kupp.
Apple will now enter free agency and many joked about where he will land after a poor performance in his final game. One Twitter user said that despite Eli Apple’s struggles, he will probably in up on the Indianapolis Colts next season.
Indy’s Pro Bowl defensive back, Kenny Moore, jumped in to assure fans that certainly will not happen.

To anyone who thought Apple would be a free agent target of Indianapolis, Moore is here to let you know that’s cap. In other words, there’s no chance that Apple will be lining up in the secondary with Moore next season.
In addition to having Moore, the Colts have young corners like Rock Ya-Sin and Isaiah Rodgers. With Xavier Rhodes set to enter free agency, Indy will probably be in the market for corners but as Moore said, Apple is an unlikely target.
A more realistic target for Indianapolis is veteran Casey Hayward, who has a good relationship with newly-hired defensive coordinator, Gus Bradley, and secondary coach, Ron Milus.
Apple, on the other hand, will spend his offseason battling online criticism as he decides where he will play.
