After 15 seasons in the NFL, wide receiver Derrick Mason is ready to move on from the game of football after a season in which he was released by the Baltimore Ravens, New York Jets and Houston Texans.
Mason was a two time Pro Bowl selection and accumulated 943 receptions for 12,061 yards and 66 touchdowns in his career.
“I’m done,” Mason told Scout. “I won’t be playing football. I only knew one play to play football, going all-out and having fun out there.”
Now that his football career has come to an end, Mason plans on pursuing a career in the media.
“I’m spending some time at home and doing as much as I can to really get entrenched in some broadcasting network whether it be nationally or do something here locally,” Mason said. “I enjoy it a lot.”
