Derrick Mason is finished after 15 NFL seasons.
The wide receiver had a rough 2011 season, bouncing from the Jets to the Texans without making much impact in either place and finishing with just 19 catches for 170 yards. He was released by the Texans near the end of the season and Mason told Aaron Wilson of Scout.com that he isn’t going to try to extend his career as a player any further.
“I’m done,” Mason said. “I won’t be playing football. I only knew one play to play football, going all-out and having fun out there.”
Mason would like to move into broadcasting. Mason, who made two Pro Bowls, finishes with career totals of 943 catches, 12,061 yards and 66 touchdowns.
