Mason called coming to Houston,"a breath of fresh air." "to come to a situation where they want you and they believe in what you can do."

On becoming a Texan."I'm excited. Coming to a situation, a team that's winning, a young team...I'm happy to be here."

On what the Texans are going to do. “I’m going to enjoy this run that we’re going to go on,”Mason said. “It’s going to be a nice run, so hopefully it’ll end up in Indy. I’m looking forward to that.”

On this Sunday against the Ravens. “I will play Sunday,”Mason said. “I’m going to do whatever I need to do to play Sunday and not just because it’s Baltimore or just because I want to be out there. I’ll be in the playbook all night tonight, tomorrow morning, all the way up until Sunday to make sure that whatever plays that I’m called to run, I’m able to run them.”
