Ravens' Matt Elam arrested on multiple drug charges

Ravens safety Matt Elam was arrested on three drug-related charges early Sunday morning in MiamiĀ .

Elam was booked at 3:45 a.m. on charges of possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana, possession with intent to sell or deliver, and possession of a controlled substance. He is currently being held on a $15,500 bond at Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in Miami.

Police records show that Elam was initially pulled over for reckless driving.

Baltimore's first-round draft pick in 2013, Elam has played three seasons with the Ravens -- sitting out one due to injury -- but failed to start a game in 2016. His fifth-year option was not picked up by the team, so he will become a free agent on March 9.

The Ravens confirmed Elam's relationship with the team going forward in a statement released Sunday: "We are aware of the arrest of Matt Elam. Matt is not in our plans for the 2017 Ravens."
