Titans Agree to Terms with Former Ravens S Bernard Pollard

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Titans agreed to terms on a one-year contract with free agent safety Bernard Pollard.

Pollard is a veteran of seven NFL seasons.  The 6-foot-1, 225-pound defender spent the last two years with the Baltimore Ravens following stints with the Kansas City Chiefs (2006-08) and Houston Texans (2009-10).  He has started 85 of his 105 career regular-season games and accumulated 576 tackles, nine sacks, nine interceptions, 10 forced fumbles and seven fumble recoveries.

“Pollard is big, physical, experienced safety. He was a key contributor for the Super Bowl winners last year and his physicality and experience will help us,” said Titans General Manager Ruston Webster. “Adding him and George Wilson to our safety group gives us options moving forward and greatly improves our depth there.”

In 2012, Pollard was an important cog in Baltimore’s run to a Super Bowl XLVII title.  He started the first 13 games of the season at strong safety before missing the final three weeks with a chest injury.  Even with the missed time, he led the Ravens with 98 total tackles and added a pair of sacks, an interception and six passes defensed.  He returned to the starting lineup for each of the team’s four postseason contests, totaling 17 tackles, four passes defensed and a forced fumble. 

Pollard originally entered the NFL with Kansas City in 2006 as a second-round draft pick (54th overall).  In three seasons there, he appeared in every game, including 31 starts. 

Signing with Houston in 2009, he played and started in 28 contests over two seasons, and in his first season with the Texans, he recorded a career-high four interceptions.  In 2010, he led the defense and set a career high with 112 tackles.

He then joined the Ravens and made an immediate impact, starting 13 games in 2011 en route to setting a career high with 13 passes defensed.  The Ravens ranked second against the run and led the NFL in red-zone defense. 

A native of Ft. Wayne, Ind., Pollard spent three seasons at Purdue University, where he played in 36 games (35 starts).  He earned second-team All-Big Ten honors at the conclusion of his sophomore campaign.
