Elston, 25, wound up signing on with the Saints as an undrafted free agent out of Ole Miss back in May of 2016. He was unfortunately waived coming out of the preseason but later signed on to the Buccaneers’ practice squad.
Since then, Elston has played for several teams including the Browns, Bills, Eagles and Dolphins. The Saints signed him to their practice squad after Philadelphia waived him coming out of the preseason.
In 2017, Elston played in 14 games, one for the Eagles, 13 for the Bills, and recorded 17 total tackles, one interception and one pass defense.
