For the past two years, one of the questions going into the season was whether or not Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Derrick Mason would be retiring or returning for the next season. This year appears to be different as Mason has already said he is not retiring - yet. Entering his 15th season, Derrick signed a two-year contract last year, so he has one more remaining on that agreement.
He says the coveted Super Bowl ring has evaded him for 14 years, so he wants another shot with the Ravens and he will get it if and when the 2011 finally is underway. Even at 37 years old, Mason has still been able to continue his consistent productivity. He caught 61 passes for 802 yards and seven TD's in 2010 and there is no reason in this offense that he can't at least come close to those numbers in 2011 as he is still one of the best route runners and possession receivers in the league.
