Bernard Pollard has been with the Titans for less than three months, but he has already developed a lot of confidence in his new team.
Pollard, the safety who signed with the Titans after he was cut by the Ravens, told the Journal Gazette in his hometown of Fort Wayne, Indiana, that he’s been very impressed with what he’s seen from his new teammates.
“We got a very athletic team,” Pollard said. “We can be dominant, but it’s about buying into what the coaches are selling, and I tell a lot of people that. We gotta be professionals. I don’t care how old you are on this team.”
Pollard said he’s trying to exercise the kinds of leadership qualities in Tennessee that he learned in Baltimore.
“Everybody did what they had to do as far as leading on the field, leading off the field, speaking up. All 53 guys did,” Pollard said of his time in Baltimore. “That’s the same thing I’m doing in Tennessee. I’m like, ‘Look. It’s not about one guy. It’s about all of us, because that’s what it’s gonna take in order for us to be playing in January and February.’”
After two years in Baltimore, two years in Houston before that and three years in Kansas City to start his career, Pollard sounds like he thinks he’s found the right spot in Tennessee.
