Free agent SS Bernard Pollard worked out for the Raiders.
It's Pollard's first known visit. He reportedly had interest from 5-6 teams during training camp. If healthy, Pollard could provide a starting option with Charles Woodson sidelined and Nate Allen on short-term I.R. 30-year-old Pollard was an effective in-the-box safety for the Titans before going down last year.

Free agent Bernard Pollard says he wants to continue his playing career, and that he's healthy after tearing his Achilles' in Week 5 last season.

Pollard, now 30, claims he's drawn interest from 5-6 teams. "It's just one of those things where you look at the Achilles' and you look at the age and everyone is acting like I'm ancient," Pollard said. Pollard remained an effective player before going down last season, but teams will have to be confident he's 100 percent before taking a flier. "Achilles'" and "30" is a really bad mix for a free agent defensive back.

ESPN 1500 Twin Cities suggests the Vikings could have interest in free agent SS Bernard Pollard.

Pollard hasn’t received any known interest since asking for his release from Tennessee in March.He was playing at a high level prior to going down with a torn Achilles and has ties to Vikings DBs coach Jerry Gray. Minnesota could use an upgrade at safety opposite Harrison Smith, where Robert Blanton, Antone Exum and Andrew Sendejo are competing for roles.

Titans released SS Bernard Pollard.

Pollard, 30, asked to be released after the season. He's 30 years old and looking for a chance to win. That wasn't going to happen in Tennessee, so the Titans granted his wish. Pollard ruptured his Achilles' in October, but should be ready for training camp. He registered 27 tackles, one sack, and one pass breakup across five games last season. Pollard is a quality in-the-box safety capable of punishing opposing players with big hits. He's an above-average run defender and leader and should be able to find work in a weak safety market.

Titans SS Bernard Pollard has requested to be released.

Entering the final year of his contract, Pollard is owed $3.1 million in 2015. He was playing at a high level before missing the final 11 games of the season with a torn Achilles' tendon. Pollard reportedly wants to play for a contender. 30-year-old Pollard is three months removed from surgery. The Titans would absorb just $425,000 in dead money by releasing him.
Fri, Jan 30, 2015 07:05:00 PM

Titans placed SS Bernard Pollard on injured reserve with a ruptured Achilles', ending his season.

Veteran George Wilson will take over as the starter next to FS Michael Griffin. Pollard was playing well before going down last week. He amasses 27 tackles and one sack, while grading out as a top-21 safety at Pro Football Focus. Pollard is under contract for $3.1 million in 2015. He turns 30 in December.
Wed, Oct 8, 2014 10:55:00 AM

Titans SS Bernard Pollard is done for the season with a ruptured Achilles'.

George Wilson should be added in all IDP leagues as Tennessee's likely new starter at strong safety. Pollard was an enforcer, tone-setter type in the back end of DC Ray Horton's defense. His loss will be felt versus the run.

Titans SS Bernard Pollard left the stadium Sunday on crutches.

The Titans are fearing an Achilles' injury for Pollard. He could barely put any weight on his heel.
Sun, Oct 5, 2014 06:59:00 PM

Titans re-signed SS Bernard Pollard to a two-year, $6.3 million contract.

Pollard broke the news on his Twitter account. One of the league's hardest hitters, Pollard is coming off a typical season, racking up 99 tackles, three interceptions and 0.5 sacks. Pollard isn't much of a center fielder, but sets the tone against the run. The Titans like the "edge" he provided in 2013. Pollard turns 30 in December. He's been with four teams in his eight-year career.
Mon, Mar 3, 2014 03:47:00 PM

The Nashville Tennessean reports the Titans are "in talks" with free agent SS Bernard Pollard.

Pollard is on the record as wanting to return to Tennessee. Pollard has made a habit of wearing out his welcome, but is coming off a strong season as an every-down player. As usual, he excelled against the run, racking up 99 tackles. He also notched three picks, grading out as the No. 21 safety in Pro Football Focus' ratings. The hard-hitter turned 29 in December.
Thu, Feb 20, 2014 02:08:00 PM

Impending free agent SS Bernard Pollard expressed a desire to return to the Titans.

"I do want to come back, but some things have to be done right for me to be here," Pollard said. What he's referring to is unclear, but Pollard did voice support for coach Mike Munchak. Pollard, 29, signed a one-year deal with Tennessee and has registered a career-high 134 tackles in 2013. He's been solid against the run, as usual, and is a top-18 safety at Pro Football Focus.
Fri, Dec 27, 2013 09:11:00 AM

The Nashville Tennessean expects the Titans to start Bernard Pollard over George Wilson at strong safety.

Wilson is the better all-around safety, but the Titans want more physicality at the box-safety position across from finesse FS Michael Griffin. DC Jerry Gray has left open the possibility of three-safety sets, which is not an abnormal NFL defensive look. It's one way to match up with offenses' two-tight end packages.
Sun, Apr 21, 2013 08:38:00 PM

Titans signed SS Bernard Pollard, formerly of the Ravens, to a one-year contract.

Pollard is one of the most fearsome head-hunters in the league and led the Ravens in tackles last year, but there's a reason he's on his fourth team in seven years. Previous reports stated the 28-year-old is a problem in the locker room and nearly staged a mutiny in Baltimore last year. He also struggles mightily in coverage, where ProFootballFocus ranked him 68th among 85 qualifying safeties. Pollard will give the Titans some toughness as he steps in ahead of George Wilson opposite Michael Griffin, but there's more name than game here.
Thu, Mar 21, 2013 10:51:00 AM

Free agent SS Bernard Pollard visited the Titans on Friday.

The Titans had one of the leakiest secondaries in the league last season. If the Titans signed Pollard, George Wilson would likely become the No. 3 safety.
Sat, Mar 16, 2013 01:57:00 PM

Ravens released SS Bernard Pollard.

The purge continues in Baltimore. The hard-hitting Pollard had a $3.25 million cap figure and a $500K roster bonus in 2013, but was a core piece of the defense and is just 28 years old. The Super Bowl Champs have now lost a stunning six starters off their 2012 defense. Perhaps they're preparing to make an offer to retain Ed Reed. Pollard will not hurt for suitors after racking up 98 tackles, two sacks, one interception and six pass breakups in 13 starts a year ago.
