Ravens' Matt Elam loses eight pounds of fat
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Ravens cornerback Matt Elam is ready to bounce back after a rough 2014 season. Elam struggled in coverage and with tackling. 

"I think it’s readily known that we have not been satisfied with the way he’s played thus far," GM Ozzie Newsome said, per BaltimoreRavens.com. "And I don’t think Matt has been satisfied with the way he’s played thus far." 

Elam has dedicated himself to getting into shape this offseason. 

"Matt has lost about eight pounds of fat," coach John Harbaugh said. "He's in tremendous shape, down to six-percent body fat."

Ravens S Matt Elam seeking to turn career around in 2015
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Ravens disappointing safety Matt Elam doesn't want to be disappointing anymore. General manager Ozzie Newsome has said he has to perform better and he's planning to.

Elam, a first-round pick in 2013 who lost his starting job midway through last season despite moving from free safety to his natural strong safety spot, finished with just 47 tackles and no interceptions. He led the team with 16 blown tackles.

"Ozzie has a lot expectation for me because he drafted me in the first round," Elam told the Baltimore Sun. "I'm not surprised. I just got to go out there and do my job. I prepared myself well enough in the offseason and I'll be ready to go."

Ravens safety Matt Elam continues to see playing time decrease
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Ravens safety Matt Elam played a season-low 15 snaps during the Week 10 win against Tennessee, according to the Baltimore Sun.

The former first-round pick has been overtaken on the depth chart by safety Will Hill and it doesn’t appear Elam will return to his starting role. Elam has a league leading 12 missed tackles for defensive backs.

"I feel like it's going well, but other people probably think different," Elam said, per the Baltimore Sun. "I've got to fine-tune the small things and some technique work and keep on improving. I got to continue to stack days and get better."

Ravens SS Matt Elam critical of his recent performances
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Ravens strong safety Matt Elam is his own worst critic. And he is not happy about his recent play.

Elam has allowed 14 receptions on 17 targets for 249 yards this season. Included were two catches, one of which resulting in a touchdown, in two targets to Buccaneers wideout Louis Murphy on Sunday.

"I'm not pleased with the last couple games at all," he told the Baltimore Sun. "That's why I'm working to get better every week to fine-tune the small things, so I won't have to say that about the next few weeks."

The difficulty of his task will be heightened in Week 7 against Atlanta, which features premier wide receivers Julio Jones and Roddy White.
