Ex-Raven Pollard says he’s signing with Titans

Safety Bernard Pollard told ESPN’s Josina Anderson on Thursday that he has agreed to a one-year deal with the Tennessee Titans.

Pollard was part of the Super Bowl-winning Baltimore Ravens team but was released this month.

He is the second former Ravens safety to make a move to the AFC South, joining Ed Reed, who agreed to a deal with the Houston Texans on Wednesday, according to a source.

The 28-year-old Pollard signed a three-year extension with Baltimore last season, but his release saved the Ravens an estimated $1 million against the salary cap.

Pollard played two years with Baltimore. Last season, he had 71 tackles and an interception despite playing much of the year with six broken ribs.

He forced a key fumble in the AFC Championship Game in New England, when he delivered a vicious hit on New England Patriots running back Stevan Ridley.

Information from ESPN’s Josina Anderson, ESPN.com AFC North blogger Jamison Hensley and The Associated Press was used in this report.
