The 32nd overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, Elam struggled mightily through his first two seasons, then missed all of 2015 with a torn biceps. He should be healthy for training camp but will likely just compete for a backup role.

Elam is expected to undergo surgery and will miss four-to-six months. The former first-round pick was fighting for a starting job and apparently suffered the injury while covering a receiver during practice.
"I haven't heard on the MRI yet, but I'm not real optimistic right now," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said.
Elam is undergoing an MRI to determine the severity of the issue after suffering the injury during Saturday's practice. He played in 16 games last season and totaled 50 tackles without an interception.
