RIP Cleveland Elam:

Former NFL defensive lineman Cleveland Elam dies at 60

Cleveland Elam, an extraordinarily talented defensive lineman whose promising career was cut short by knee injuries, has died at the age of 60.

In 1976 Elam had a team-high 17.5 sacks (which weren’t yet considered an official NFL statistic), earning the first of his two consecutive Pro Bowl selections.
