Matt Elam is spending the first part of his offseason back in Florida, attending classes to finish his degree and selling shoes at a local retail chain.
It's been well documented by now that Elam picked up a part-time job at Finish Line in Gainesville, Fla., where he sells sneakers and is often asked for autographs. He's worked out with the Gators this spring to stay in shape, as you'd think he'll be back up in Owings Mills for organized team activities.
BaltimoreRavens.com posted a video on twitter of Elam on the Finish Line floor.

Though it seems Elam has a knack for being a retail salesman, he probably shouldn't quit his day job. That said, when his football career is over, owning his own retail store will likely become his day job.
So hey, this is good experience for the second-year safety while he has the down time.
