The XFL is hosting another showcase on Saturday, this time in Tampa Bay.
Mallett, 31, is a former third-round pick of the Patriots back in 2011. He was traded to the Texans in 2014 in return for a conditional sixth-round pick.
Mallett lasted just over a year in Houston before he was released and later signed by the Ravens during the 2015 season. He spent three years in Baltimore as Joe Flacco’s backup.
In 2016, Mallett appeared in four games for the Ravens and threw for 26 yards and one interception while completing three of six pass attempts.
Elam’s 2015 season ended after he suffered a torn biceps. However, Elam wound up being suspended one game without pay for violating the NFL substance abuse policy.
The Ravens declined to pick up Elam’s fifth-year option that would have cost them over $5.6 million in 2017.
For his career, Elam has appeared in 41 games and recorded 124 tackles, a half sack, an interception, a forced fumble, two receoveries and seven pass defenses.
