Texans Deal for Derrick Mason

The Houston Texans made an aggressive move to add 15 year veteran wide receiver, Derrick Mason for a 7th round draft pick. Mason, who has had 3 consecutive 1,000 seasons (2007-2009) and 8 for his career is added to a shallow talent pool of Texas receivers.

Derrick Mason

Mason comes to the Texans after signing a two year deal with the New York Jets, but his time there has been limited. With only 13 catches and 115 yards, he was benched for rookie Jeremy Kerley which didn't sit right with Mason. Mason expressed his dismay after being benched in the loss to the New England Patriots:

“I’m not part of it,” Mason said. “I come here and do what they ask me to do and play good football. I’ve always said the play-caller makes the play-calls and the players have got to make them work. If we make them work then they’re great play callers. If we don’t make them work then everyone wants to jump on the OC.”

The Texans saw an opprotunity to jump on what some would call a problem for the Jets, and got a disgruntled veteran but proven player in Mason. The only issue for the Texans in this deal if they got someone with some miles left in his tank.

No matter how you look at it the Texans have already improved their receiver corps, found a stop-gap until Andre Johnson returns, but more importantly addressed the need to improve over Jacoby Jones. This move proves that Jones is not the current answer and it was time to make a move.

Fans have to like the fact they are not waiting for things to happen, the front office is making moves to improve this team. The time to win the AFC South is now and the Texans are pulling out all the stops.
