Derrick Mason resigns with the Baltimore Ravens

In a move many in Baltimore have been waiting for, Ozzie Newsome and his crew signed wide receiver Derrick Mason to a two-year deal with the Ravens.

After flirting with the idea of retiring after this past season, Mason was also rumored to make possible visits with other teams to see how much he was worth.

However, Mason never fully intended on going anywhere else, which is great news for Baltimore.

The receiver has been a big part of this team as he caught 73 passes for 1,028 yards and seven TDs last season. He has caught at least 1,000 passing yards in eight of the past nine seasons.

With the signing of Cardinals WR Anquan Boldin last week and Donte Stallworth last month, these three receivers will be a dynamic force with QB Joe Flacco’s passing attack.

Head Coach John Harbaugh said “this is outstanding, just great news for the Ravens. Our coaches are happy. Derrick’s teammates are happy and you know Joe [Flacco] is smiling.

“Way to go to Ozzie [Newsome] and Pat [Moriarty] for getting this done. We would have lost something special if Derrick had gone to another team. We have gotten better in the last couple of days.”

The Ravens normally known as a team to fear for their defense will now be a team that has a threat in the offense not only in the rushing from running back star Ray Rice, but now with the depth in the passing to Mason, Boldin, Stallworth and most likely Mark Clayton, who has not yet been picked up from other teams.

I think Baltimore is about to rack up the skymiles on the football field this season.
