    WTF did Pollard get from the Titans? I am so pissed we didn't consider signing him. Guy is a beast.

He lost as mny gaes in 2011 as sanchez did in 12.

    Eric Smith as a starter is terrible, as a depth role player and a ST's player, he's a very solid player, a leader on ST's, that is important.

    Jarrett, Jaiquawn S 6-0 196 23 2 Temple

    Lockett, Bret S 6-1 220 26 4 UCLA

    By my count, that's 2 SS and 2 FS on the roster with the draft still to come.
    The Jarrett pick up intrigues me, there is some talent there.

    Well by FA I meant VET players, guys who have played significant min or started in the NFL, not guys who for all intents and purposes have little if any playing time. Guys with similar playing time as the vets I mentioned that the jets have signed. I did not even include Goodson as he has not yet had significant playing time

    Sign Huff if still available he should be cheap as he has realised all the big money in FA on safeties has already been spent. Draft Rambo or Shamarko.

    1 yr. Not sure what the money was but for one year it couldn't have been much. I am pissed too. Would have been perfect for us.

    I am thinking maybe 2.5. Wilsonn got 2mill and I would think Pollard would get a little more.

    One of these.

    Scratch Jarvis Jones, I just read he flopped on his pro day yesterday. How about Dion Jordon and Vaccaro?

    Also dont forget we have Jarrett now too. Given Philly had an OL coach running the D for 2 years maybe Rex can turn him into a real S.

    Bush vs. Allen at SS. Loser plays third safety.

    FS is found in the draft.

    Youth movement.

    SPEED.

    Would rather Warmack/Vaccaro. Two starters from day 1.

    There is a reason Pollard has been with as many teams as he had in his short career. The guy is an A hole, and would be an epic disaster here in New York. Plus the guy has zero coverage ability, just a big hitter with no range.

    “Mutiny” may have been a factor in Pollard release
    Posted by Mike Florio on March 13, 2013, 2:18 PM EDT
    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.

    What happened? Is one bad performance really enough to tank someone's chances?
