Former Florida DB Matt Elam arrested on multiple charges

According to a police report, Delray Beach Police were called to the home of Elam's girlfriend just before 4 a.m. Monday in reference to a possible assault. The woman, 22, and Elam fell outside a residence as they wrestled for the phone, before Elam got the phone and walked away, the report said.

After being arrested on drug charges earlier this year, Elam has reportedly been arrested again.

Elam's latest arrest only increases the already strong possibility that his once-promising National Football League career is over after he played just 41 games during parts of four seasons with the Ravens.

He was released on $5,000 bond following the February arrest and has a hearing scheduled for May 30. There was talk after the first arrest if Elam was the worst draft pick in franchise history and I think he's finally solidified that role. Baltimore decided not to pick up his fifth-year option on his rookie contract, making him a free agent at the conclusion of last season.

Elam was largely a disappointment in Baltimore. He struggled with injuries that forced him to miss the part of the 2014 season and all of 2015.
