Ravens rookie safety Matt Elam is changing his jersey number.
Originally assigned No. 31, which was former Ravens strong safety Bernard Pollard's number, Elam now will wear No. 26.
The number became available when the Ravens withdrew their exclusive-rights free agent tender to safety Emanuel Cook, making him a free agent.
