The Ravens sign Mason to a two year deal

mason.jpgIt seems Derrick Mason didn't generate a lot of attention from other NFL teams during this current free agent market. Perhaps many teams weren't high on signing a 36 year old receiver, but that would be their mistake.

Derrick Mason knows the Ravens offense, he knows Joe Flacco, he knows how to get the job done. plain and simple. Now imagine him with one on one coverage, with recently signed Anquan Boldin receiving most of the double coverage. This is icing on the cake with having signed Boldin and Donte' Stallworth. Suddenly the Ravens have a legitimate receiving corps, and when you add in Ray Rice, Todd heap, and Willis McGahee the Ravens have one of the most potent offenses in the entire league to go along with their perennial strong defense .

This signing was huge, and it shows that the team knows what needs to be done and are on their way to making that a reality. Rave on brother and sisters!
