Safety will move straight into starting lineup to improve secondary.
The Tennessee Titans have signed Super Bowl winner Bernard Pollard to a one-year contract, and will look to help the young Titans defence as they aim to improve on their disappointing 6-10 2012 season.
Another member of the Baltimore Ravens Super Bowl winning defence has left the team via free agency this off-season, after the Titans signed hard-hitting safety Bernard Pollard for the 2013 season.
The Titans gave up an average of 207.7 passing yards a game in the league last year, placing them 22nd and this was a serious issue to address this off-season.
Pollard will bring a wealth of experience to a very young and inexperienced team, and is being seen as a short-term resolution to the problem in pass defence, before looking at a serious re-shuffle at the position during the 2014 draft.
Tennessee have now made two signings at the safety position, having brought George Wilson from Buffalo into the team to boost competition within the roster, as well as giving the team complexity in their defensive schemes.
With Pollard signed and the defence starting to take shape, head coach Mike Munchak can now turn his focus on improving the dreadful offensive line during this year’s draft.
DJ Fluker, an offensive tackle from Alabama is rumoured to be high on the Titans radar, as they look to improve their running game behind elite running back Chris Johnson.
