Bernard Pollard won't join his former Baltimore Ravens teammates in any festivities celebrating their Super Bowl win. That includes the Ravens' upcoming trip to visit President Barack Obama at the White House. "I got to sit this one out, man," Pollard told WJZ-FM in Baltimore on Wednesday, via ESPN.com. "If I didn't have a vacation, I wouldn't come in anyway. That's just the type of player I am." Pollard acknowledged he was "stunned a little bit" by the Ravens' decision to release him after the season. He signed a one-year contract with the Tennessee Titans a week later. He said he has no animosity for his former teammates or Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome. Pollard did make it clear, however, there are individuals he'd rather avoid. "At the end of the day, I know what happened, I know what took place," Pollard said. "I'm sorry, I just don't want to be in the room with certain people." Pollard never mentioned John Harbaugh by name, but there's speculation Pollard's exit was tied to an Oct. 31 incident in which he spoke out over the coach's choice to practice in full pads.
