...As for the other side, Waters said he knows Pollard very well, and that the Ravens safety will never regret ending Brady's season.
"He's definitely a high energy personality," said Waters. "He definitely brings a lot of energy to the football team. I've been around Bernard when he was a rookie and he was the same guy he was then. He's a very physical football player, he loves to hit. He has a very aggressive personality. I expect him to be at an all-time high come Sunday."
