Matt Elam Changes His Number

USA TODAY Sports

26: The amount of interceptions will have next year.

After being assigned Bernard Pollard's old number of 31 at the beginning of this weekend's mini-camps Matt Elam has changed his number to 26.

Number 26 was reserved by exclusive rights free agent Emmanuel Cook last year, but after the Baltimore Ravens withdrew their exclusive rights the number again became available which spawned Matt Elam to make the change.The most famous Baltimore Raven to wear number 26 was Hall of Fame safety Rod Woodson; not exactly bad company to join.

For all of you Ravens crazies out there who ordered Matt Elam's jersey as soon as his number was determined, I would recommend calling NFL Shop to ask for a refund.
