Titans Officially Release S Bernard Pollard

Update:

The Tennessee Titans announced the release of veteran S Bernard Pollard Tuesday. 

———-

The Tennessee Titans have released veteran S Bernard Pollard on Monday, according to Jim Wyatt.

A few months ago, Wyatt reported that Pollard had asked Titans GM Ruston Webster for his release, so this shouldn’t come as a complete surprise.

Following the season, 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 had 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 will 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.
