    Titans' Whisenhunt: 'No decision to be made' on Pollard's request

    Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt addressed a request made by safety Bernard Pollard to be released, saying that there's "no decision to be made" while the safety recovers from Achillies surgery, The Tennessean reports. "Those are the kinds of things that go on this time of year, so that is not uncommon,'' Whisenhunt said of Pollard's request. "He's not healthy right now, so there is no decision to be made." Pollard has been rehabbing away from the team's facility in recent weeks, according to the report. He's scheduled to make $3.1 million in 2015 in the final year of his two-year deal.

    Report: Titans S Bernard Pollard wants to be released

    Titans safety Bernard Pollard has requested a release from his contract, The Tennessean reports. He is scheduled to make $3.1 million in the final season of his two-year deal in 2015. Pollard submitted his request to general manager Ruston Webster at the end of the regular season, per the report. He is recovering from a ruptured Achilles and wants to play in 2015, but said on The Tennessean's Bernard Pollard Show earlier this month that he was unsure of his future with the Titans. "I am not getting any younger, so I want to win, I really do. I want to win,'' Pollard said. "Looking at how things took place this year, looking at where (the Titans) need to be for next year, that is a tough, tough question, and I don't even know if they can give me the answer. I have one year on my deal, but it is going to take some time." Pollard has been out of his walking boot for a month and is making progress in rehab. He suffered his Achilles injury in Week 5 and was placed on injured reserve.

    Titans S Bernard Pollard not 'around' the team during his rehab

    The Titans have sent out an open invitation for injured safety Bernard Pollard to rejoin team activities. Pollard suffered a season-ending torn Achilles Week 5 vs. Cleveland. According to defensive coordinator Ray Horton, Pollard has not been a presence in meeting room and road trips, per the Tennessean. "He's still in his (walking) boot, so I'm sure he feels like he can't get around," Horton said. "And then when guys get hurt, you (go from) all the camaraderie and joking, and all of a sudden, you're not in the inner circle anymore. It is tough on an athlete to miss that kind of time."
