Ravens veteran WR Derrick Mason, 36, has hinted at retirement for the second consecutive offseason.
Mason, who will become an unrestricted free agent March 5, told the team’s official Web site Thursday that it will take a multi-year contract from the Ravens for him to return for his 14th NFL season.
“I’m weighing my options to potentially come back and play,” Mason said. “My thought pattern is that if there’s no need to come back for one year, then there’s no need to come back. It has to be for more than one year. I’m not just going to come back for one year and let it be at that. If I came back, it would be for more than one year.”
The Ravens signed WR Donte Stallworth to a one-year contract Wednesday, and they aren’t done seeking help at the position, according to NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora.The Ravens likely will explore trade options for top-tier receivers such as Denver’s Brandon Marshall and Arizona’s Anquan Boldin, La Canfora noted.
