The Baltimore Ravens had previously reported he would re-enroll at the University of Florida to continue working towards his degree in Anthropology.
The 22-year-old Ravens FS said he made a promise to his mother that he would still finish his degree, the Ravens reported. His is around 20 credits shy of a bachelor's degree.
Elam said another reason for the decision is that he realizes a career in the NFL is fleeting.
"I've seen this is a business,” Elam told BaltimoreRavens.com writer Garrett Downing. "In this business, you need a degree because you can be gone the next day."
