Ravens' Matt Elam arrested in Florida on drug charges.
Matt Elam, a highly disappointing former first-round pick for the Baltimore Ravens, wasn’t likely to garner much attention on the free-agent market next month – safeties credited with one tackle on defense in nine games rarely do.
But Elam’s NFL career may have ended early Sunday morning in Miami.
According to Miami-Dade police records, Elam was booked into a city correctional facility at 3:45 a.m. He is facing multiple charges: possession of more than 20 grams of cannabis (a felony), possession of cannabis with intent to sell or deliver, possession of a controlled substance, and reckless driving.
Police said they pulled Elam over for reckless driving and while searching his car discovered 126 grams of marijuana as well as 3 grams of oxycodone.
