Bernard Pollard finds a home

The man who ended Tom Brady’s season in 2008 will get to play football in 2009.

Former Chiefs safety Bernard Pollard signed with the Texans Thursday, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Pollard was also incidentally responsible for injuring Darren McFadden last year, giving him turf toe when he caught him from behind on a long run in Week Two.

It’s a little surprising Pollard stayed on the market so long considering his second round pedigree and experience as a starter in the league.  Houston’s secondary coach David Gibbs coached him in Kansas City, so the move makes a lot of sense for a team with a shaky back end.

Pollard will likely get put to work right away on special teams.

  1. Good for him. I mean he is getting crap because Brady is a statue in the pocket and his lack of mobility made it possible for him to get hit. Also to blame him for McFaddens injury is terrible. This is football, I’m tired of QB’s getting all of this nonsense protection man up nancy boys

  2. Texan fans will enjoy this guy, tough and makes a lot of big hits. unfortuneately he gets beat deep and he is real slow- tough on special teams

  3. chapnasty, your an idiot. he dove from his knees and took out bradys, when he was in full extension on a deep pass. you obviously know nothing about football, so keep your dumb ass comments to yourself.

  4. The hit on Brady’s knee was clearly unintentional. If you think otherwise, then you are a Pats homer without a doubt. It wasn’t even a late hit or anything. Football’s a rough game and shit happens. Bernard Pollard had nothing to gain out of hitting Brady on the knee intentionally. The Chiefs and Pats don’t have a rivalry, Pollard is by no means a household name, and he doesn’t have a personal grudge against NE, or at least not that I’m aware of. Unless it is clearly a cheap shot like Jared Allen on Matt Schaub, then I give any player the benefit of the doubt.

  5. b poll can hit like a truck and is a vocal guy in the locker room. but he can’t tackle one on one and is weak in coverage. but on special teams, he will block at least one punt this year for sure.
