Despite being cut before the start of the Ravens training camp, former Baltimore wide receiver Derrick Mason has played well for the Jets, and had six catches in New York's loss to Oakland on Sunday.
Mason will be one of three receivers the Ravens have to stop Sunday night here at M&T Bank Stadium. The other two are Plaxico Burress and Santonio Holmes. Mason is tied with two other receivers for third in receptions with ten.
"Not having the OTA's and all that kind of stuff, we kind of just threw him to the wolves, so to speak," said Jets coach Rex Ryan. "But he has done a good job. Last week, I think he caught six or seven balls. Derrick is the same guy he was there for all those years. He is an excellent receiver, he can catch the football with anybody. He is doing a good job here."
