Ravens remove Mason from 80 man roster

WESTMINSTER -- The Baltimore Ravens placed veteran wide receiver Derrick Mason, who announced his plans to retire two weeks ago, on the reserve/did not report list.The designation means that Mason won't count against the NFL's 80-man roster limit. The Ravens can activate him from that list at any time should he decide to return, and they retain his rights.

Wide receiver Demetrius Williams hasn’t spoken with Mason since about a week ago when he checked in on the two-time Pro Bowl wideout.

Williams said he didn’t come away with an opinion on what Mason is planning to do.

"I really don’t know,” Williams said. “A guy can go home and sleep on it and the next thing you know, he doesn’t want to play anymore. Or he might wake up in the morning and say, ‘I want to play.’

“You never know. It’s a decision that he’s going to have to make. Whatever decision he makes, we’re going to be happy. If we get him back, that’s a great plus, and if we don’t get him back, we’ll understand."

. I attended the Morning session today and am still very impressed with QB Joe Flacco's Arm Strength.
My vantage point was behind the goal post near the baseball field at MC DANIEL. I was impressed with one particular pass thrown by Joe Flacco where # 14, Riley? took the ball away from DB # 21 WEB and Scampered 80 yards for a score. The ball was so well thrown and WEB went for the INT and Missed.
Tony reported a light crowd today and I think that comment is a generous one.
I can't wait until Friday morning.
Go Ravens!
