    I would love to see the Steelers take a look at Bernard Pollard.

    PFT reporting right now that Reed may be next...saying that Harbaugh wants rid of both because of the "mutiny" last October. Don't forget that Ray Ray is gone as well. They've lost both starting MLBers, and possibly both safeties. Flacco won't have Boldin to bail him out next year either. They may be looking at their own 8-8 season next year....


    “Mutiny” may have been a factor in Pollard release

    A string of surprising moves in Baltimore extended on Wednesday to a player who supposedly was safe.


    Safety Bernard Pollard is out, and everyone is wondering why.


    As one league source said in response to the news, “Three teams in how many years. Soon four. What does that tell you?”

    Another source says that Pollard has a reputation for being outspoken, for complaining, and for drawing too much attention to himself. He wears on a team, with his talent keeping him around for a second year or third year.

    More specifically, we’re now getting the clear impression that last year’s incident that, as reported by Mike Silver of Yahoo! Sports, was “practically a mutiny,” has contributed to the departure of Pollard — and could result in more players being purged.


    And he’s where it gets really interesting. (Or at least less uninteresting.) Silver specifically mentioned Pollard and Ed Reed as instigators of the mutiny.

    Coincidentally, we’re now getting indications that the Ravens don’t want Reed back.

    So while coach John Harbaugh handled a difficult situation very well at the time (as evidenced by the team’s Super Bowl trophy), it looks like Harbaugh may have decided that, at the appropriate time, he’ll make sure it doesn’t happen again.

    why? He wouldn't replace anyone.

    we need youth at the safety spot.

    Also, Kuger's leaving makes Suggs more easily handled without the added threat.

    He'd fit right in with Ryan Clark.

    Ed Reed to visit the Texans on Thursday

    MAR 13
    By Jamison Hensley | ESPN.com

    There could be yet another starter leaving the reigning Super Bowl champion Ravens.

    Free-agent safety Ed Reed is scheduled to visit the Texans on Thursday, according the Houston Chronicle. Houston needs to replace Glover Quin, who signed with the Lions on Wednesday.

    Reed is considered one of the top free-agent safeties available after Quin and Dashon Goldson (Tampa Bay) signed Wednesday. The Patriots and Colts were expected to be the frontrunners to sign Reed in free agency.

    The Ravens have already lost four players on defense this offseason: inside linebackers Ray Lewis (retired) and Dannell Ellerbe (signed with Miami), outside linebacker Paul Kruger (signed with Cleveland) and safety Bernard Pollard.

    This is absolutely delightful to watch, that team is being gutted.
