The most unexpected part of Derrick Mason’s retirement and recent un-retirement is that no one expected him to be the kind of guy that would use retirement as a way to get out of training camp. Not that anyone would fault him for it, considering he’s the steadiest part of the Ravens’ offense and one of the league’s classy guys, but he just doesn’t strike me as the Michael Strahan, Brett Favre “Should I or Shouldn’t I”, kind of guys.

Nevertheless, Mason is back. Joe Flacco can breathe easier. Ozzie Newsome can put the phone down on potential trades and free agent signings, and Cam Cameron can get back to working planning for Mason to be the go-to-guy for possession catches.
