With the departure of Dawan Landry, the Ravens needed more help at the safety position and have apparently found it in former Houston Texan Bernard Pollard, who is expected to join Baltimore on Thursday. Pollard was a second round pick of the Kansas City Chiefs in 2006 and will add much-needed depth in the purple secondary.
Pollard had a huge 2009 with the Texans and established himself as a big tackler and was involved in a hard hit below the waist that ended Tom Brady’s season in 2008 while with the Chiefs that garnered him a reputation. Pollard apologized for the hit saying: “It was really an accident, I can’t change what happened. I can’t do anything but pray for him and hope he has a speedy recovery.”
Pollard attended Purdue University and will compete for a starting spot in the secondary with Ed Reed, Haruki Nakamura and Tom Zbikowski.
