Less than 24 hours after missing out on free agent wide receiver Malcom Floyd, the Ravens have let Derrick Mason slip through their finger tips as he plans to sign a one year deal with the New York Jets.  Mason tweeted on Saturday, “Jet fuel is full time to fly.”  Numerous sources have confirmed that he will sign with New York.

To the Ravens, this is another crushing blow.  After putting all of their eggs in the Floyd basket, they missed out when he signed back with San Diego.  Their backup, 37 year old veteran Derrick Mason now chooses to leave his former team and join Rex Ryan, Bart Scott and the Jets.  Baltimore is missing a speedy and proven wide receiver, time is running out and cap room is not on their side.  This could be their biggest loss of the offseason.
