Now as the NFL’s lock out has been lifted the Baltimore Ravens have gone on a shedding spree by kicking out veteran players. The first one to get the boot is their wide receiver Derrick Mason. Mason will now be released when the league’s calendar allows for it. According to sources Baltimore has also told their running back Willis McGahee and their tight end Todd Heap that they’re going to be cut lose. Sports scores
In addition their defensive tackle Kelly Gregg will be released as well according to media reports. Mason who is 37 was their most productive veteran for the previous season. The 15 year vet has managed to catch 61 passes for 802 yards and has seven touchdowns. But Mason’s production has dropped in the first season since they added their wideout Anquan Boldin during the previous offseason. Football scores
Mason speaking to the Baltimore sun said “It’s a little bittersweet,” “I understand the business of football, and I understand what has to be done in the business of football. It was good while I was there. I can’t hang my head down. I think I did everything above and beyond what they asked me to do when I came in there six years ago. And I think everybody in that building can attest to that. If last year truly was my last year in a Ravens uniform, then I’ve enjoyed every bit of it.”
Mason had signed on with the Ravens back in 2005 after he played nine seasons for Tennesee Titans. But despite playing in a run oriented offence for a good part of the six seasons in Baltimore he has still accumulated for seasons with the least 1000 receiving yards. Baseball scores
Mason said when speaking to the Sun “This is just another chip on my shoulder,” “This is something else that fuels me and makes me try to be as productive on the field as I can, whether that be in Baltimore — and I hope it is — or somewhere else. [My return] is solely up to them. I love Baltimore. The city embraced me. The organization is great from top to bottom. My first thing would be: ‘Why not Baltimore?’ They’re primed to win a Super Bowl and I don’t want to go nowhere else but a place that is primed to contend for a Super Bowl.”
