2012 Kansas City Chiefs Minicamp: Former Cowboy Abram Elam Looking Sharp

Veteran safety Abram Elam was a 16-game starter for the Dallas Cowboys in 2011, and picked up - and off - where he left last season in his first day as a Chief. Elam, signed last week, played with the starters and intercepted quarterback Matt Cassel.

Elam, who had 64 tackles and a forced fumble for the Cowboys last year, is likely to see an extensive amount of time at safety during offseason work, as both Eric Berry (family issue) and Kendrick Lewis (torn pectoral) will miss minicamps. Romeo Crennel, still acting as the team's defensive coordinator while also serving as head coach, was impressed (quote courtesy of the Chiefs' official site):

"He is a smart young man that has been in different systems and that’s one of his strong suits that he can pickup and call defenses," Crennel said. "He has called the secondary in the past, so I think that will bode well for our situation because if the two guys we do have aren’t back, you can see out there that the young guys make mistakes."
