Ravens’ DC: Elam Having Best Offseason Yet


Dean Pees started his answer before the reporter had even finished his question.Pees was asked about the performance of third-year safety Matt Elam during the offseason program, and the Ravens defensive coordinator made his assessment crystal clear.“Best camp he’s had, bar none. Not even close,” Pees responded. “I expect big things out of Matt. I really do.”Pees’ comments fall in line with what’s been said about Elam the last couple months. The 23-year-old defender reported to the voluntary program in better shape after shedding about eight pounds since the end of last season.He’s played faster and more intuitively during recent practices, and the coaches are taking notice.“That means a lot coming from Dean Pees,” Elam said. “I’m just trying to do whatever I can to help this team win and be in the best situation.”
