Ravens Are ‘Optimistic’ WR Mason Won’t Retire

After speaking with the veteran receiver Tuesday night, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said he came away “optimistic and hopeful” that Derrick Mason will postpone his retirement and play this season.
“He wants to make sure he’s in the right frame of mind to compete at the level he’s competed at his whole career, which is a warrior-type level,” Harbaugh said, adding that Mason is “ready physically” and “healthy” after shoulder surgery.
