    That's the likely reality..

    Dmase and jackson are not even being shopped. Dmase more likely than jackson i would think. the ravens are paying more for mason.

    We can also wonder if the jets have any real desire to cut loose mccareins so all these dicussions are a lot to do about nothing until we learn more. That's what happens when you are desperate..

    He is the best WR the Tennessee Titans have ever had since moving to Nashville. There is no question if its possible to do YES BRING BACK D-MaSe anything outside a 1st round pick though!

    Mason's got maybe 2-3 years left in him (if that), and he didn't exactly leave on the best of terms.

    Moreover, he got awfully pouty and whiny in '04, when Bennett had his hot streak. Suddenly Mason wasn't the clear-cut #1 guy, and he couldn't stand it. The same thing is happening in Baltimore....he had more receptions than any other Ravens WR in 2006, yet still whined about not being a bigger part of the gameplan.

    I wouldn't object to Mason coming back...if the FO likes him, I'll trust their judgment implicitly....but I really don't think DMase and the Titans are a good fit anymore. I just don't see Mase as a guy who would be happy finishing out his career with a developing young QB and mentoring the younger WR's.....especially if he ends up being the #2 or #3 guy on the depth chart, which is a very real possibility at this stage of his career.

    Here it is in a nutshell: Mason was happier being the clear-cut #1 WR on a 6-10 team in '05 than he was after going 13-3 while splitting touches with Clayton and Heap this year. Personally, I'd prefer a guy who plays for the team, instead of a guy who expects the team to play for him.

    Very well put.

    IMO bringing back mason is like going out on a date with a former girlfriend after being broken up for 2-3 years, it never works out that great the second time around.
