Ravens coach John Harbaugh on Monday explained the decision to slot second-year safety Matt Elam in at the nickel cornerback slot in Thursday's 26-6 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, which he said allows the team to take advantage of its safety depth and added a run nickel package to its future plans. “We're able to do it because Matt Elam can do it,” Harbaugh said Monday. “He's done a great job of learning how to play in the slot, and that's not an easy thing to do, especially for a safety.

David K. Elam sits at the round table in the dining area of a model townhouse that could be in any suburban subdivision. It has a new kitchen with modern appliances. The rooms are bright. The carpet fresh. The windows clean. The bedrooms have been decorated with a "Leave It to Beaver" mentality. But this house is in a reclamation project called Riverfront in Cherry Hill, a tough Baltimore neighborhood. It is a project at the core of what Elam does best. "You've got to give the people what they want," he said.

Ravens safety Matt Elam and running back Bernard Pierce missed a second straight practice for the Ravens Tuesday, while tight end Owen Daniels, who missed two weeks with leg fatigue, practiced for the second consecutive day. Elam is dealing with "a little leg issue," coach John Harbaugh said Monday, and is expected back later this week. Pierce was injured on a hit to the head by Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather in Saturday's preseason game, and left the game to go through the league's concussion protocol.

Ravens free safety Darian Stewart delivered such a punishing tackle two years ago while playing for the St. Louis Rams that the impact knocked Arizona Cardinals running back Ryan Williams off his feet and sent him crashing to the ground. The big hit left Williams woozy for several minutes, ultimately knocking him out of the game. Although somewhat undersized, strong safety Matt Elam emerged as a feared player in the Southeastern Conference with a series of devastating hits. The Ravens drafted him in the first round last year because of his aggressive nature.

Ravens safety Matt Elam will make $6.767 million over the course of his four-year rookie contract. He doesn't have to pay for the remaining 20 credits he needs to graduate from Florida. So, naturally, he seems to have gotten a job at the Gainesville, Fla., Finish Line while he completes his anthropology degree. Elam told the Ravens' team website that he was going back to school in part because of his mother. “One reason I'm going back is my mom. I promised her I was going to go back,” Elam said.

The final word belongs to Ravens rookie free safety Matt Elam . Following a week where he created unwanted headlines when he called Detroit Lions star Calvin Johnson "pretty old," Elam intercepted a Matthew Stafford pass in the final minute to preserve the Ravens' 18-16 victory Monday night at Ford Field. The first-round draft pick recorded a game-high 10 tackles and capped the game with the first interception of his career. Afterward in the Ravens' locker room, Elam was emotional after contributing the biggest play of his NFL career.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson certainly doesn't need any extra motivation. But a day after Ravens' rookie Matt Elam called him “old,” the 28-year-old couldn't help but have a little bit of fun at the rookie safety's expense. “It's all good,” Johnson said in a conference call with Ravens' reporters. “I'll show him what that old-man strength is all about, though.” In a conference call with Ravens' reporters, Johnson seemed more amused than annoyed by Elam's comments, which included the safety saying that the Ravens needed to get physical with the Pro Bowl receiver because “he's pretty old, so I don't know how physical he'll be,” according to the Associated Press.

Ravens rookie free safety Matt Elam has only played six games in the NFL, but he is already aware of the split-second dilemma that defenders face while converging on pass-catchers in the open field and taking aim at target areas some feel are shrinking by the second. Go high and your bank account could take a hit. Go low and you could cause a serious knee injury, something that many players would prefer much less than a concussion. Elam was put in that position late in the second quarter of Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

A year ago, David K. Elam was moving into his new offices on the 15th floor of the Blaustein Building on North Charles Street. It was a weekend, and he had boxes of files in his car that he wanted to carry in.So he told a maintenance worker he was a new tenant, working for Fannie Mae, and needed to park next to the building for a few minutes. "Fannie Mae?" asked the maintenance worker. "You work for Fannie Mae? Who's she?"And therein lay Mr. Elam's challenge as the new director ofFannie Mae's Baltimore Partnership Office.

Each week, Baltimore Sun blogger and reporter Matt Vensel will fire a few questions at a random Ravens rookie. This week it was Matt Elam, a first-round pick from Florida who is the team's starting free safety. MV: How do you think these past couple of weeks have gone for you since joining the starting lineup? And has there been anything about playing in the NFL that has surprised you or caught you off guard? ME: No, not really. Everything has been doing as planned. I'm going out and working every day and I'm getting better at what I do, so that's giving me confidence.

The education of Ravens rookie free safety Matt Elam is approaching a pivotal early phase, a moment he intends to be ready for.

He'll be matching wits and speed with a sophisticated, high-powered offense led by veteran quarterback Matt Schaub. Here come the play-action passes intended to gauge whether Elam is too aggressive and will overreact to fakes by sprinting toward the line of scrimmage, eager to deliver punishment.
