The Ravens announced Tuesday evening that they have extended the contract of safety Bernard Pollard for three years.
Entering his seventh NFL season, Pollard has seen action in 92 games (72 starts), including all 16 contests (13 starts) in his first year with the Ravens in 2011. The 27-year-old registered 75 total tackles (55 solo), two sacks (-14 yards), one interception, a career-high 13 passes defensed and three forced fumbles for Baltimore last season.
“Bernard showed last year that he is a Raven,” Newsome said. “He’s smart, tough and brings a passion to the games, our practices and in the weight room. His physical presence on the back end is very important to the way we play defense. He has indicated since the first day he stepped into our building last training camp that he wanted to be a Raven for the long haul.”
