Bernard Pollard was cut for two reasons. Salary cap purposes and he got into with John Harbaugh. He now plays for the Titans, but he still upset. Here is what he had to say about why he won’t be going to the White House. “I’m not gonna be there,” Pollard said.  “I gotta sit this one out, man.  I actually have a vacation with my family and then I’m coming back to get [my ring].  If I didn’t have a vacation, I wouldn’t come in anyway.” “It’s not my teammates,” Pollard said.  “It’s not my teammates at all.  I would celebrate with them any time, any day of the week I would celebrate with them.  But at the end of the day, I know what happened, I know what took place. . . . I’m sorry, I just don’t want to be in the room with certain people.” “I’m just a player where you ask me my opinion, I’m gonna tell you,” Pollard said.  “And for you to get upset or whatever afterwards, you know, you asked me.  That’s that. . . .  We were just asked our opinion about something.  And we let the coach know our opinion. . . .  It was us as players. . . .  We were asked, the floor was open.  And we responded, and let the coaches know how we felt, and that’s how it has to be as a football team.  We can’t walk around on eggshells as a football team.” I am sure the Ravens are going to be ok without him there.
