Biography

 
PRO: Bernard Pollard was signed by the Titans as a free agent on March 26, 2013.  The 6-foot-1-inch, 226-pound safety brings a unique physical presence and big-game experience to the Titans’ secondary.  Pollard came to Tennessee after winning a Super Bowl championship with Baltimore Ravens in the second of his two seasons with the club.  Prior to joining the Ravens, the former Purdue product spent two seasons with the Houston Texans.  He entered the NFL as a second-round pick of the Kansas City Chiefs and played three seasons there.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:
•     In his first season with the Titans in 2013, Pollard, a team captain, started all 16 games at safety, led the team with 142 tackles and ranked second on the squad with three interceptions.
•     In 2012, started 13 games at safety for the Ravens and led the team with 98 tackles, two sacks, an interception and six passes defensed on his way to capturing a Super Bowl title.
•     In 2010, started 15 games at safety for the Texans and led the team with a career-high 112 tackles, 2.5 sacks, five passes defensed, four forced fumbles and a blocked field goal.
•     In 2008, started all 16 games for the Chiefs and led the team with 98 tackles, an interception, four passes defensed, two forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries which tied for fourth in the NFL.

TITANS TIDBITS:  
•     Pollard is the creator of Style Pro 31, a portable tray that fits in most sinks, and is designed to help alleviate the clutter while creating more space for accessories. He came up with the idea after hearing women talk about space issues around the bathroom sink.  The gadget fits over the sink, allows objects to be placed directly on it, and allows use of the water.  The product is patented and trademarked and can be purchased at stylepro31.com.
•     Established the Pollard’s Helping Hands Foundation, focusing on feeding the hungry of the urban core.  In Dec. 2011, he hosted a pantry drive at Pimlico Elementary School in Baltimore that provided over 300 families in need with groceries they could use to sustain them through the post-holiday school break.
