Bernard Pollard keeps Baltimore Ravens termination notice taped to his locker

Bernard Pollard RavensBernard Pollard spent two quality seasons with the Baltimore Ravens in 2011 and 2012, but what’s that phrase we hear 13 times a day after the NFL season ends? Oh yeah, “football is a business.”

The Ravens cut Pollard in March in order to clear cap space so they could afford players like Joe Flacco. Baltimore fans were surprised to see their team release him after Pollard laid a massive hit on New England Patriots running back Stevan Ridley that sealed the AFC Championship. Pollard is using the move as motivation now that he has begun a new chapter with the Tennessee Titans.

As Shutdown Corner pointed out, the notice informed Pollard he had been cut due to “skill or performance” reasons.┬áThe 28-year-old shouldn’t be offended given the way the Ravens cleaned house after winning the Super Bowl, but there’s nothing wrong with using it as motivation. If it helps him play with more energy, I’m sure his Titans teammates will embrace it.
