Apple agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Panthers on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Apple previously agreed to sign with the Raiders in March, but after having been unable to finalize a deal in Las Vegas, the veteran corner will now link up with the Panthers. The 24-year-old fills a key void on Carolina's roster, as the team didn't previously have much in the way of proven options behind Donte Jackson. As such, Apple looks primed to play a starting role at cornerback for new defensive coordinator Phil Snow. The former Saint will remain in the NFC South.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
2017
2016
After two and a half rocky seasons with the Giants both on the field and in the locker room, Apple received a much-needed change of scenery in October, when he was dealt to the Saints. In New Orleans, the 2016 first-round pick immediately supplanted the struggling Ken Crawley at the starting cornerback spot opposite Marshon Lattimore, helping the Saints' pass defense stage a dramatic turnaround in the process. While he didn't grade out as a standout contributor in the secondary and had his pricey fifth-year team option declined by New Orleans during the offseason, Apple's merely serviceable play was a welcome development and solidified his hold on a starting role heading into 2019.
The team's 2016 first-round pick, Apple had a forgettable 2017, with poor play, a suspension, clashes with teammates and time missed while being with his mother who had brain surgery. The Giants new regime has offered Apple a clean slate, however, and at press time he slots as the team's starting cornerback opposite Janoris Jenkins.
Last year's first round pick, Apple had a solid season as a cover corner, and he'll again start opposite Janoris Jenkins. While Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie will also have a high snap count, the Giants will be in nickel defense so often it shouldn't affect Apple's workload.
Giants' first-round pick, Apple will work on the outside and occasionally in the slot, often in nickel and dime packages. But he's unlikely to start with Janoris Jenkins, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Leon Hall in the fold.
