MATT ELAM RUMORS & GOSSIP

Is it Time for the Ravens to Move on From Matt Elam?

The Baltimore Ravens closed out 2014 with the eighth overall defense, allowing 336.9 yards per game.

Is Matt Elam a bust? The Ravens snap counts at safety say… something

The Ravens first-round pick from the 2013 draft may not be panning out. Or, the Ravens third-round pick from 2014 is really panning out, and their free agent signing of a talented, yet troubled safety could only be beginning to pay off.
