Elam vs. Ihedigbo

The departure of Ed Reed from Baltimore this offseason garnered much attention, but the team is actually replacing both of its starting safeties, as Bernard Pollard was released this March. Former Raiders S Michael Huff is projected to take over for Reed, and the team believes that first-round pick Matt Elam may be ready to take over for Pollard as a rookie. But James Ihedigbo won't let the opportunity for a starting job pass him by.
