I found this impossible to believe.

Baltimore Ravens strong safety Bernard Pollard announced on his Twitter account (@Crushboy31) that he is being released.

“Well Raven Nation it's been fun,” Pollard wrote. “My time in Baltimore is done... Thank you!”

The hard-hitting Pollard started 26 of 32 games since joining the Ravens in 2011. Pollard, 28, was set to collect a $500,000 roster bonus Friday and earn a $2.5 million base salary this season.

Two other Ravens defenders – linebackers Dannell Ellerbe (Miami) and Paul Kruger (Cleveland) – signed lucrative free-agent contracts elsewhere on Tuesday when the NFL signing period opened. The Ravens also traded wide receiver Anquan Boldin to San Francisco for a sixth-round draft pick and had center Matt Birk retire.

Free safety Ed Reed, left tackle Bryant McKinnie and cornerback Cary Williams are three more prominent Ravens free agents who remain unsigned.

I posted this to take some of the heat off of what TS have been doing lately.

Like I said. I found this hard to believe. But why would he say something like that if it wasn't so?
