Background and college

Elam was born on October 15, 1981 Cardinal Newman HS (West Palm Beach, FL) was one of four Notre Dame football players charged with sexually assaulting a female student in 2002.

NFL Career

Before the Jets

Elam was signed by the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted free agent in 2006 and played 15 games for them.

As a Jet

On September 12, 2007, Elam signed for the Jets. In week 9 of the 2008 season, Elam picked off a pass from Trent Edwards in the red-zone and returned it for a 92-yard interception-return touchdown. In week 15, he struck again against the Bills by forcing a J.P. Losman fumble, which led to a Shaun Ellis touchdown recovery with 1:54 left in the game, giving the Jets a 31-27 lead and eventual win. In two seasons with the Jets, Elam appeared in 29 games, registering 122 tackles, with two sacks and one interception.

After the Jets

On April 25, 2009, Elam was traded from the Jets to the Cleveland Browns as part of the draft day deal that sent the 5th overall selection to the Jets, who used it to draft Mark Sanchez.
