Baltimore Ravens FS Matt Elam has been promoted to the starting lineup and is being listed as the starting free safety on the depth chart. Elam played in 66 snaps in Week 2, while FS Michael Huff played in only six snaps.
Huddle Up: Huff, signed in the offseason, has long been just a guy, while the Ravens have higher expectations for their first-round pick out of Florida.

Baltimore Ravens FS Matt Elam agreed in principle to his rookie
four-year contract. The deal includes an option for a fifth year.
Elam's contract is worth $6.767 million, with a $3.301 million
signing bonus. He has a $1.23 million salary cap number this year.
Huddle Up: Elam, the 32nd overall pick, is expected to take over at strong
safety for the defending Super Bowl champs whose revamped secondary
will likely feature 3 different starters from the group that started
Super XLVII. Expect some big plays allowed and some learning on the
fly from the unit, at least early in the season.
