It appears the NFL will not discipline Tennessee Titans safety Bernard Pollard for comments he made in which he described his motivation to "kill," according to a league source.

The league office seems to believe Pollard, and the Titans sufficiently explained he was not being literal and that he will be more careful in expressing himself publicly in the future.

In an interview with The Tennessean earlier this week, Pollard made his "kill" reference and said the Titans' goal this season is to win the Super Bowl.

"Our goal is the Super Bowl, and our mission is to kill," Pollard told the newspaper, pointing to his message written in a Sharpie on a white piece of paper and taped to his locker at Baptist Sports Park. "And if someone doesn't like it, then who cares? I really couldn't care less. It is not our responsibility to make anyone else happy, to please you, to care about you.
