And he will be retiring as a Baltimore Raven, as per a Ravens news conference today. Would have been great to have him in his prime. We seem to have the knack of picking up WRs on their very last leg. Good luck to you and enjoy a healthy retirement.

From PFT:

Derrick Mason is finished after 15 NFL seasons.

The wide receiver had a rough 2011 season, bouncing from the Jets to the Texans without making much impact in either place and finishing with just 19 catches for 170 yards. He was released by the Texans near the end of the season and Mason told Aaron Wilson of Scout.com that he isnt going to try to extend his career as a player any further.

Im done, Mason said. I wont be playing football. I only knew one play to play football, going all-out and having fun out there.

Mason would like to move into broadcasting. Mason, who made two Pro Bowls, finishes with career totals of 943 catches, 12,061 yards and 66 touchdowns.

Anyways, Congrats to him.

He did for 8 seasons. Then Baltimore, NYJ and finally the Texans.
