The Jets hope that 37 year old WR Derrick Mason still has something left in the tank.
The Jets hope that 37 year old WR Derrick Mason still has something left in the tank.
It took him a day to mull it over, but after careful consideration, veteran WR Derrick Mason has decided to become a NY Jet.

He will instantly step in to the spot vacated by the departed Jerricho Cotchery and adds needed depth to the Jets re-vamped wideout corps that included the addition of Plaxico Burress and the jettison of Cotchery, Braylon Edwards and Brad Smith.

The Jets are banking that the 37 year old 15 year veteran Mason who was released by Baltimore last week still has something in the tank after coming off an impressive 61 catch 802 yard, 7 TD season last year.

Mason has proved to be durable and relatively injury-free during his career that started in Tennessee in 1997. Ironically, the Jets were reportedly competing against his two former teams for his services.

Details of Mason's contract were not revealed at press time.
