Report: Bernard Pollard Requests Release From Titans

Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean, citing a source familiar with the situation, reports that Titans veteran S Bernard Pollard has requested his release from his contract.

According to Wyatt’s source, Pollard made the request to Titans GM Ruston Webster at the end of the 2014 season.

The Titans announced that they have parted ways with vice president of player personnel Lake Dawson.

Interestingly enough, Pollard took issue with the Titans decision to part ways with vice president of player personnel Lake Dawson.

After the season ended, Pollard said he wasn’t sure whether or not he would be playing in 2015.

“I am not getting any younger, so I want to win, I really do. I want to win,” Pollard said. “Looking at how things took place this year, looking at where (the Titans) need to be for next year, that is a tough, tough question, and I don’t even know if they can give me the answer. I have one year on my deal, but it is going to take some time.

Pollard, 29, signed a two-year, $6.3 million contract with the Titans back in March of last year. He base salaries of $1.65 million and $3.1 million coming his way over the course of the deal.

According to OverTheCap.com, releasing Pollard outright would free up $3.2 million in cap space and create $425,000 in dead money.

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