The Baltimore Ravens add Matt Elam in last year’s draft to serve as a replacement for veteran Ed Reed, who was released as his skill set began to decline, but they are not done adding help in the secondary just yet.
While Elam proved he can hold down one of the safety positions for the team, they still need someone who can challenge for the other starting job.
According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens have met with Alabama safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, who would allow the team to bump Elam over to strong safety and allow Clinton-Dix to roam the field at free safety, which he has proven is a strength in his game.
The Ravens hold the No. 17 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, so there is a good chance that Clinton-Dix will still be on the board and the Ravens could pull the trigger.
If the Ravens were able to pair Elam and Clinton-Dix, they’d have a great one-two punch in the secondary for the next few years.
