Massaquoi totaled 22 tackles and two sacks in 15 games for the Falcons in 2014. Pollard was expected to be cut by the team after requesting his release earlier in the week. He suffered an Achilles tear in October, limiting him to just five games in 2014.
Pollard had previously requested for the Titans to release him. He's coming off a season that ended prematurely due to an Achilles tear in early October. He was slated to earn $3.5 million with the Titans this year if he stayed on.
In the five games he appeared in during the 2014 season, Pollard recorded 27 tackles and one sack.
"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. The Titans would save $3.2 million in cap space by releasing the safety.
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.
"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."
