“I was just doing my responsibility,” Elam said of his interception. “I was coached to read (Boss) and locate the ball. I just went and made the play.”
Much like Siler at linebacker, Elam gives the Chiefs an experienced hand as a backup safety.
“He has some pro experience,” coach Romeo Crennel said. “He’s a smart young man, and he’s been in different systems. That’s one of his strong suits is that he can pick up and call defenses, and he has called the secondary in the past. That will bode well for our situation because if the two young guys aren’t back … you see out there without them, the young guys we do have make mistakes.”
