It’s that time of the year when NFL prospects hit the practice fields to run, jump, and show off their skills in front of scouts and general managers as they jockey for position in the 2021 NFL draft. But not everything is new this offseason with one familiar face looking to make a comeback.

Much like the draft prospects earning so much attention right now, former Baltimore Ravens safety Bernard Pollard is back on the football field to run, jump, and show off his skills. Pollard has been posting workout videos on Twitter recently, saying he’s working to attempt a comeback to the NFL.

This is a pretty late comeback attempt for Pollard, who last suited up with the Tennessee Titans in October of 2014 before a ruptured Achilles tendon sent him to injured reserve. While the NFL is no stranger to some of its biggest stars playing well beyond their supposed prime, that’s usually reserved for quarterbacks. While he’s currently 36 years old and hasn’t played the game in seven years, it’s not unfathomable that Pollard could actually find his way back on a roster again. The Ravens signed Dez Bryant last season after the wide receiver missed two seasons and looked to be done in the NFL. While Bryant didn’t come close to his best years, he did catch six passes for 47 yards and two touchdowns over six games.

If granted a return, don’t expect Pollard to suit up in a Ravens uniform, however. He’s had a longstanding beef with Baltimore coach John Harbaugh that he’s been very vocal about on Twitter. Pollard has blamed Harbaugh for dismantling, what Pollard believes was, a championship-caliber team. Pollard has called for Harbaugh’s firing and has thrown so much shade, other former Ravens have called him out for it. Though Pollard has been so vocal in his displeasure for Harbaugh, he said he could play under him in Baltimore, albeit under the right conditions.

Regardless of what went down in Baltimore, a return to the NFL for Pollard would be an incredible feat.
