Titans S Bernard Pollard's pregame ritual involves lots of nudity

Thursday December 4th, 2014

Titans safety Bernard Pollard has a weekly show on Tennessean.com, where he talks about the team and answers fan questions.

One fan asked Pollard about his pregame rituals. After making sure the crowd really wanted the truth, he gave his hilarious and weird answer: He gets naked and stays that way as long as possible.

"When I get into the facility, I’ll go get in the hot tub, shower, then go to my locker and just sit in my jock strap. I don't know what it is. I’ll put my jersey on my shoulder pads — everything’s ready to go, but I just sit... I am a nudist."

Pollard says his former Ravens teammates even timed how long he spent in the nude, with his record coming in at around 34 minutes.
