Back on the field Sunday three weeks after announcing his retirement, Ravens receiver Derrick Mason said he's 100 percent committed to the Ravens as he enters the final year of a five-year, $20 million contract. Mason sought an extension during the offseason but said his contract status had no bearing on his decision to retire.
"When I made it, I was sincere about it," Mason said. "It wasn't a ploy or anything contractual. It was from the heart. ... I don't want that to be a carrot hanging over my head. People are going to say, 'Well, he just came back for the contract.' I didn't get an extension. I'm coming back to play football and try to win a Super Bowl."
