Derrick Mason, the Baltimore Raven's all-time leader in yards and receptions, will officially announce his retirement on Monday, reported Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com:

The best numbers of Derrick Mason's career came when he was with the Tennessee Titans. The final season of his 15-year career came with the New York Jets and Houston Texans. But Mason will retire a Baltimore Raven.

Mason will officially announce his retirement at a ceremony with Baltimore on Monday that will include coach John Harbaugh and general manager Ozzie Newsome.

The Ravens released him before the 2011 season and then he was last on an NFL roster for the New York Jets and the Houston Texans.

Mason tweeted on Monday morning that he is happy with the decision.
