Good news on the Derrick Mason situation. Sort of.

Mason talked to Thursday and said he wants a two year contract if he’s going to come back and play for the Baltimore Ravens.

From his standpoint I see what he’s saying. Mason, who asked for a contract extension before abruptly retiring and coming back in 2009, wants security and continuity for his family. He is also trying to get the maximum value out of what his possibly his last contract.

I wouldn’t be surprised at all if the Ravens oblige Mason’s request. Even though he’s been around for quite some time, he was productive this past season. Mason’s numbers may have dropped because the Ravens offense was predictable at times, but he had a solid season nonetheless. I don’t know how much Mason is worth at this point in his career, but I would give him a fair contract.
