I always loved this guy. Tough. Hard working. The Ravens will miss him


BALTIMORE -- Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Derrick Mason told a sports Web site on Monday he's retiring from the NFL.

"After 12 years, I have seen it all and done it all," Mason told jocklife.com. "Right now, I am content with the decision I am making. All good things come to an end, and I am ready to see what else life has to offer."

But Mason has not informed the team of his decision.

"For any player to retire, he has to send a letter to the NFL stating this. Derrick Mason has not done that," said Kevin Byrne, the Ravens' senior vice president of public relations.

Mason's agent, Peter Schaffer, did not immediately respond to a phone call and e-mail from The Associated Press.
