Ravens To Bring Matt Elam Back From IR

Safety Matt Elam will soon make his 2016 debut. The team announced that Elam is practicing today. The Ravens now have three weeks to make a call on whether to activate Elam, who is recovering from preseason knee surgery. Matt Elam

Elam, a 2013 first-round pick, missed the entire 2015 season with a biceps injury. His offseason knee injury was frustrating for both player and team alike, but he’ll now try and get things back on track. The Ravens are on bye this week, so Elam will have some extra time to get ready before facing the Steelers on Nov. 6.

The safety showed plenty of promise through his first two years in the league, compiling 127 tackles, seven passes defended, and an interception in 32 games. If the Ravens do not activate Elam in the next 21 days, they cannot put him on the field this season.

    He was the steal of the 2013 draft. Another way Ozzie proves he’s smarter than all of the other GMs. In the past 3, 4, 5 years, he has out GM’d every GM in the NFL. No doubt. Check it out…

    1. Drafted Matt Elam in the 1st round
    2. Drafted Breshard Perriman in the 1st round
    3. Used his 1st pick (2nd round) on Courtney Upshaw
    4. Gave a monster contract to Joe Flacco.
    5. Let Tyrod Taylor walk for very little money. Could have received the same production he got from Flacco from Taylor, or better.

    Take that other NFL GMs!

    Plenty of promise? Written by someone who has never watched him wear a Ravens uniform. He consistently misses tackles and gets burned for big plays – that’s if he’s on the field at all. Those counting stats do not tell his whole story at all.

    As a Gator and Raven fan, I was thrilled when we made the pick, but it’s been a disaster.
