    I guess he is being let go by the Titans. You know the drill.

    If we could get him, he would definitely take alot of pressure of Andre and those two would be Bruce/Holt part 2 IMO.

    Don’t get me wrong. I’d love for him to be here, BUT wouldn’t he want to be a #1, and not under AJ’s shadow. Second, spending the money on him would not leave much for our O line? Who cares if you had AJ, Moss, and TO, if Carr does not have the time to throw then what would it matter in having the best receiving core that the NFL has ever seen.

    Mason is interesting because he seems like a quality team player. However, I don't see him coming here. I would kind of like to develop the young guys we already have, but if Mason would play for the veteran minimum or a little more then he'd be a great to have for a year or two.

    I thought the front office said they were not spending any more money on the O-line through free agency idonno:

    You would be saying the exact opposite if we had all Pro Bowlers on the O-line with no WR's to throw too IMO idonno:

    This would be a correct statement. If our receivers needed more help than the o-line then I would agree that that is what I would say. But the case is that IMO Carr and the receiving core are just fine, but the time for their plays to come together is diminished by the lack of time that the o-line gives them. SO on that note, yes we need help on the o-line more that any other position on the team........................followed closely by the d-line. Trust me I hope they all play like all-stars next year but something has to change.
    :hmmm:

    I really doubt that will have much of an effect on his decision. I think he's a little more concerned with how green the money he's offered is as opposed to how green the grass on our field is. The only place I could think of as having an impact on whether or not a player would go there is St Louis and Indy since they both have astroturf. It could shorten a players career.

    I would love to have him and he would create great matchup problems, and since I dont think the Texans will be looking at OL in FA then it might be a good way to go, filling a need o offense and giving the organizations another reason to go wiht an O-lineman in one of the 1st 2 rounds.

    I would put him on the list for Jets, Steelers or Eagles.

    Baltimore is also an option. The Steelers don't need another WR. However the eagles have a WR who would rather stop on a route and not get hit. I could see him playing an excellent #2 to TO and if TO goes down again, then he could be the #1 WR.

    Most likely just conjecture by Pasquarelli, but interesting none the less. Of all WR's soon to be available I think Mason fits us the best.

    Jaguars | Interested in Mason - from www.KFFL.com
    Fri, 25 Feb 2005 11:27:05 -0800

    Bart Hubbuch, of the Florida Times-Union, reports the Jacksonville Jaguars have confirmed they have spoken with Peter Shaffer, agent for free agent WR Derrick Mason (Titans), and have expressed interest in signing his client.

    In an interview done with ESPN Radio, Mason mentioned the following teams in order as to who he'd like to play for/contact with him

    Jacksonville Jaguars
    Cincinnati Bengals
    Philadelphia Eagles

    Houston Texans were not mentioned.

    The following were the list of things that he would look at as far as deciding what team he'd play for.

    1) Direction of Team (Can they win the Super Bowl in the next few years)
    2) Supporting Cast (offensive talent and good defense)
    3) Good School for his daughter

    Mason also mentioned he'd like a deal done in the next 2 days

    I sure wish Casserly would get on his horse on this

    Sounds like news on the possibility of Mason NOT being a Texan. As long as its not Indy or Jacksonville Im fine with it. I dont want him in our division anymore lol.
