Abe Elam Wants New Contract with Cleveland Browns: Good Luck With That

Safety Abram Elam revealed on his Web site today that he has yet to sign the second-round tender Cleveland offered him back in March.
Elam said he is seeking a multi-year contract from the team.
Good luck with that, considering the Browns drafted two safeties after the defense finished 31st last year, surrendering 383 yards per game.
With the amount of yards allowed on deep throws to wide open wide receivers, Elam might want to take a step back, and re-evaluate his position.
Elam had no interceptions in 2009. That's right, Z-E-R-O. He had 91 tackles and forced one fumble.
Raven safety Ed Reed, by comparison, had 50 tackles, three interceptions and three forced fumbles.
However, Reed had an STF of three, for an STFY of 11 yards while Elam had an STF of two, for an STFY of three yards.
In the stats column, STF means tackle for a loss while STFY means yardage lost in a tackle.
While these numbers are relatively small, they indicate a lot.
