“Derrick has not only been a favorite of ours at the Ravens, but he’s clearly one of the most popular players to our fans in our history,” said Ravens Senior Vice President of Public and Community Relations Kevin Byrne. “It’s so flattering that he wants to retire as a Raven.”

While Mason was drafted by the Tennessee Oilers and spent much of his career with Oilers/Titans franchise, he played six seasons in Baltimore and is currently the franchise’s all-time leader in receptions (471) and receiving yards (5,777).

“Tennessee gave me an opportunity – and I will always be grateful for that – to actually live out one of my dreams and play this game and play at a high level,” Mason told The Baltimore Sun.

“But once I got to Baltimore, that’s when I really started to grow as a player, that’s when I really started to understand what this game was about, why I was playing it. That’s why I want to retire as a Raven, because I had some great, great memories there and I met a lot of great people. That’s my football family.”
