Raiders Worked Out Veteran S Bernard Pollard

Field Yates of ESPN reports that the Raiders recently worked out veteran S Bernard Pollard after they placed S Nate Allen on injured reserve with the designation to return.

The Raiders could obviously use some help at safety given that they’re without Allen and S Charles Woodson is dealing with a shoulder injury.

Pollard, 30, signed a two-year, $6.3 million contract with the Titans back in March of last year, but he wound up being released by Tennessee in a move that freed up $3.2 million in cap space for the team.

Since then, there hasn’t been any reported interest in him, which is a bit surprising given that he has been a productive player in recent years. However, he is coming off of a serious injury, which likely impacted the amount of interest in him.

Pollard’s 2014 season came to an end in Week 5 after he sustained a ruptured Achilles injury. Last year, he appeared in five games and recording 27 tackles, one sack and a pass defense.
