    For all Bernard Pollard lovers............ do you still want him?

    Posted by Mike Florio on March 13, 2013, 2:18 PM EDT AFC Championship - Baltimore Ravens v New England Patriots Getty Images

    A string of surprising moves in Baltimore extended on Wednesday to a player who supposedly was safe.

    Safety Bernard Pollard is out, and everyone is wondering why.

    As one league source said in response to the news, “Three teams in how many years. Soon four.  What does that tell you?”

    Another source says that Pollard has a reputation for being outspoken, for complaining, and for drawing too much attention to himself.  He wears on a team, with his talent keeping him around for a second year or third year.

    More specifically, we’re now getting the clear impression that last year’s incident that, as reported by Mike Silver of Yahoo! Sports, was “practically a mutiny,” has contributed to the departure of Pollard — and could result in more players being purged.

    And he’s where it gets really interesting.  (Or at least less uninteresting.)  Silver specifically mentioned Pollard and Ed Reed as instigators of the mutiny.

    Coincidentally, we’re now getting indications that the Ravens don’t want Reed back.

    So while coach John Harbaugh handled a difficult situation very well at the time (as evidenced by the team’s Super Bowl trophy), it looks like Harbaugh may have decided that, at the appropriate time, he’ll make sure it doesn’t happen again.

    I still think he could be a very good fit on the Pats. He plays a position of need, and every time they play against him someone gets hurt! The only drawback I see is that they couldn't let him practice for fear of injuries.

    Even with this crap he pulls:

    The Pats are known for bringing in guys with attitude issues that fit the scheme. Obviously he'd have to pass muster with BB and Brady, and they don't have quite the locker room they did with Teddy, Willie and the old guard, but what's best for the team is best for the team.

    The NFL is a business, and the distain between wes and the pats was mutual, so he left. you cant let the past prohibit the team from going after a good player. pollard plays hard and the defense could use some nastyness to them. i want teams to fear going across the middle on the pats, teams like the broncos!

    i feel like the pats would be ok bringing in pollard because they have good lockerroom leadership, they may not have bruschi, or willie, or troy.....but they have leaders like vince, mayo, brady...

    He's is a punk a** Bit**!  A thug who couldn't cover a graveyard and is a dirty player to boot.  I hope he sinks like a stone.  Maybe he will wind up with the Redskins who need safety help.

    Absolutely none of the hits that injured Welker, Gronk, Brady or knocked Ridley out were dirty hits. All were good hard football.

    Yes if only for the fact they don't have to play against him. He has caused absolute chaos for the Pats. What better way to avoid it then to make sure you aren't playing against him. He also brings an intimidating factor to the defensive backfield that the Pats haven't even come close to having since Rodney Harrison retired. BB should do what he can to bring him in.

    Pollard hits too hard and stays too healthy for the Pats.
