Derrick Mason retires from NFL

The former Spartan announced his retirement Tuesday.

Mason played 15 years in the NFL and is the all-time leading receiver for the Baltimore Ravens with 471 catches. His 453 catches with the Tennessee Titans put him fifth on their all-time list.

Mason turns 38 next week and played with three different teams this year, being cut by the Ravens, traded by the New York Jets and cut by the Houston Texans. He told Scout.com he's happy he can leave football healthy.

Mason played at MSU from 1993-96, where he finished 12th all-time in catches (120), 11th in receiving yards (1,914), and is the all-time leader in kick-return yards (2,575).
