Titans Bernard Pollard Working to Conform to NFL’s Crackdown on Verbal Abuse
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Titans safety Bernard Pollard has worked the past couple of years to clean the cursing out of his trash-talking.
He ran some words by officials working Tennessee’s training camp Friday to make sure he’ll pass the NFL’s new crackdown on racial slurs and verbal abuse.
Pollard says the officials are not going to change what he’s doing, but he wanted to make sure what still will be OK. The veteran safety says the trash-talking will continue.
The safety was fined at least three times last season, including one for $42,000. He joked that he eyed down one official who flagged him for a penalty last season.
The officials are working practice Friday and Saturday night along with sitting in on some position meetings to answer questions.
