Ravens release S Pollard

The Baltimore Ravens' roster makeover continues.

A day after losing linebackers Dannell Ellerbe and Paul Kruger in free agency, and two days after trading wide receiver Anquan Boldin, Baltimore has parted ways with starting strong safety Bernard Pollard.

Pollard announced the move on Twitter Wednesday morning, saying: "Well Raven Nation it's been fun. My time in Baltimore is done."

Pollard was the Ravens' starter at strong safety each of the last two seasons and led Baltimore with 98 tackles last year despite missing three games and reportedly through broken ribs for most of the season.

"Wow my boy [Pollard] is gone great teammate and father on and off the field," tweeted Baltimore fullback Vonta Leach.

Pollard was due a $2 million base salary and was set to count $3.25 million against the salary cap. He was to be owed a $500,000 roster bonus if still on the roster Friday.

Pollard's release comes a day after the Ravens re-signed fellow veteran strong safety James Ihedigbo, who started three games in place of an injured Pollard during the latter part of last year's regular season.
