MATT ELAM RUMORS & GOSSIP

Baltimore Ravens welcome back Will Hill, needed relief for Elam

The Ravens secondary is about to get the boon it needs. Matt Elam — who was drafted as and praised as a hard-hitting, physical safety clearly suited for the strong safety role — has been playing out of position frequently this season.  He has been asked to do a large amount of coverage, and as a result his play has suffered.  Third-round pick Terrence Brooks has alleviated...

The Ravens safety play, and addressing the elephant in the room

When the Ravens drafted Matt Elam in the first-round last year, we assumed that would solidify at least one safety spot for four years. Elam’s career has started in more of a stumbling manner than a running one, not dissimilar to Jimmy Smith coming out of Colorado.  We know that Smith was worthy of that selection, but with Lardarius Webb, Cary Williams and Corey Graham, the depth...

Calvin Johnson: I’ve Never Heard Of Ravens S Matt Elam Before This Week

Well Matt Elam, you got Megatron’s attention. Elam was an All American at Florida, and will be a pretty good safety in the NFL one day.  He may have barked up the wrong tree this time. On the heels of Elam saying the Ravens would be physical with Calvin Johnson because he’s an old man, Johnson has fired back with some ether of his own.   Johnson initially responded to Elam’s...

Ravens safety on Megatron: He's pretty old

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) -- Ravens safety Matt Elam has plenty of words to describe wide receiver Calvin Johnson, the main object of focus for Baltimore's defensive backfield Monday night in Detroit. Those words include "big, fast, athletic, unstoppable, freak." Curiously, Elam went in another direction when asked how best to cover the 28-year-old Johnson, who's...
