Re: Mason to Ravens

Happy for the kid. Hoped we could've kept him. Could've been our next RB

Re: Mason to Ravens

The Ravens got a steal, if I was them I promote him to the 53 man roster before another team steals him. I say watch Mason to become the starter sometime this year or next year, mark my words. The man has starting RB talent.

Re: Mason to Ravens

The man crush thing over Mason should be tempered with the fact that he has trouble pass blocking. That's a big liability in the NFL, especially if you run any kind of spread offense.

That said, I'm happy for Mason: Balt. is a good spot for him, given their shaky depth at RB. Plus, he's an area guy, so it's a nice fit for him. He's works hard and is by all accounts a great teammate.

PS We can still grab him off the Raven's PS if we need him before the Ravens do, for what it's worth.

Re: Mason to Ravens

Another thing, it's not like we're exactly thin at running back. Trust me, when mid-season rolls around and we're a little nicked up, Rock Cartwright all of a sudden looks like a gem.

In the end, it really was a numbers game. I think it had more to do with the need for depth at other positions than it did about Mason not being good enough to make the team.

Well, the fumble didn't help matters.

Re: Mason to Ravens

I'm just wondering. Why can't the nfl increase the roster to say, 58 ? Is it a money thing or what? It would have been nice to keep Mason, especially since we were the ones who gave him a chance and I believe he really wanted to be a Redskin.

It's always a money thing.

Re: Mason to Ravens

he couldn't get 3rd/4th and 1, he couldn't return well, couldn't pass protect, and wasn't anything special as far as coverage teams. It's no surprise we kept cartwright over him, and there's no use keeping a 4th RB if he's worthless on special teams.

he can be a good backup, but we've had so many of those guys through here that it's not a big loss (betts/cartwright/kenny watson - still backing up for cinncy/mason).

Re: Mason to Ravens

I'm happy that he got to stay local. I still can't believe that we cut Mason and McMullen, yet held onto Tryon, who showed only a penchant for getting beaten deep.
