The Saints declined to exercise the fifth-year option on Apple's rookie contract, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Apple, who would have been owed roughly $13 million in 2020, is thus slated to become an unrestricted free agent next offseason. Even though the Saints won't keep him I n the fold beyond 2019 after forking over a fourth-round pick to the Giants last season, he's nonetheless been a solid pickup for a win-now Saints team that has bigger priorities than overpaying for a No. 2 cornerback. New Orleans will likely use the money saved by forgoing Apple's fifth-year option to try and extend the likes of receiver Michael Thomas, running back Alvin Kamara and top cornerback Marshon Lattimore.
