No 'hard feelings' for Browns safety Abram Elam

By Nate Ulrich Published: July 5, 2010

In a recent blog post on his Web site, Browns safety Abram Elam suggested he won't hold out during training camp after signing his one-year contract tender as a restricted free agent last month. Elam, a Kent State University product, led the Browns with 88 tackles last season. He and four other Browns players -- linebackers D'Qwell Jackson and Matt Roth, running back Jerome Harrison and fullback Lawrence Vickers -- were restricted free agents who signed their tenders just before the June 15 deadline to avoid losing money.


Here's an excerpt from Elam's blog post:


"I signed my tender last Monday so i'll still be a Browns this season. There won’t be any hard feelings. I hope the fans understand that the NFL is a business and as a professional you have to understand the business part of the game. I’m happy to have a job and be able to play for one of the great football towns in Cleveland. I’m just excited to get back to work and hopefully I can help us turn things around and win some games for the greatest fans in the league."
