Derrick Mason Ends Brief Retirement from NFL Betting

NFL betting had Baltimore wide receiver Derrick Mason ending his brief retirement on Saturday.

Mason was the Raven’s top wide receiver a year ago and Baltimore would have had a huge hole on offense had Mason decided to stay retired. NFL football betting at the online sportsbook will have the Ravens as a serious contender in the AFC this season.

NFL betting tells us that Mason’s retirement was a short one. "It was a tough decision, but I think it was a good decision for me to come back," Mason said, "I needed to evaluate my life, football and my career. The last several weeks thinking about it and talking with my family was an important time for me and them."

Mason told Baltimore Raven’s owner Steve Bisciotti of his decision on Saturday as NFL betting info tells us and then met with Coach John Harbaugh and general manager Ozzie Newsome. "I still have an intense fire inside me, and I want to play. My family and I wanted to finish it out the right way.” Mason said, “I felt like I had left something undone, and I wanted to finish it. I believe this is a good example for my son and my daughter on how to be thoughtful and also follow through."

The Ravens players were thrilled that Mason decided to return to their ranks in the NFL betting standings. "We knew with him coming back, what that would do for us and where it would set us," receiver Mark Clayton said. "We're excited about it."

The return of Mason is huge for the Ravens in terms of NFL betting at the sportsbook. Without Mason the team would have had no receiver on the roster that could be termed “dependable.” Even in practice, Justin Harper and Demetrius Williams were seen dropping passes as NFL betting information showed. Only Clayton can be considered an NFL quality receiver so Mason’s return is huge to the Ravens in NFL football betting. Last NFL betting season Mason led the Ravens with 80 catches as stats indicate. That is almost double that of the next NFL football betting receiver on the list as Clayton had 41 catches. Mason finished with 1,037 yards and five touchdowns as NFL football betting stats indicate. "He brings in experience and production," Clayton said. "We know what we're going to get when he steps on the field."
