Bernard Pollard, who is apparently very upset about the Titans firing Lake Dawson, has asked the Titans to release him according to Jim Wyatt. Here is what Pollard had to say earlier today on Twitter:
Talk about the wrong guy getting fired. I can name a lot of players/people that SHOULD'VE been in that position today. Bad ball! Smh at yall— Bernard Pollard Jr (@Crushboy31) January 30, 2015
Apparently he got some backlash from Wyatt's report on Twitter, because he said this tonight as well:
As a Titans fan if u have ever sold your tickets to an opposing team and/or don't watch the games, how dare you blame me for wanting to win?— Bernard Pollard Jr (@Crushboy31) January 31, 2015
It's always a good look when players fire back at the fans #sarcasm. I am not saying he is wrong in what he said, and I don't blame him at all for wanting to go to a team that has a chance late in his career, but he would be better served to just take the high road.
Pollard was pretty good for this team in 2013. He brought a much needed fire to the defensive side of the ball. The Titans rewarded him with a two-year deal last offseason, but Pollard missed most of the season after tearing his Achilles heal early in the season.
I would be willing to bet that the Titans will eventually honor his request.
