Elam’s first arrest came in February when he was cuffed while holding 126 grams of marijuana and three grams of oxycodone. The former first round pick hurt his chances of signing somewhere after that incident and the odds have only gotten worse with this week’s arrest.
Elam struggled as a starter in his first two NFL seasons and he missed the entire 2015 campaign thanks to a biceps tear in training camp. After losing much of last year to a knee injury, Elam showed very little in the nine games that he did appear in.
