New York Jets Training Camp 08.06: Derrick Mason Joins Gang Green

-- See Gang Green Nation for complete Jets discussion and analysis

Derrick Mason will be a member of the New York Jets. The 37-year-old veteran has agreed to terms with New York, it was announced today.

"After a lot of very thoughtful and careful consideration, conversations with my family and prayer, I have decided to sign with the New York Jets," Mason told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. "I'm looking forward to working under Rex and rejoining some familiar faces."

Mason has eight 1,00-yard seasons on his resume. He caught 61 passes for 802 yards with Baltimore last season.

He joins a revamped Jets receiving corps that includes Santonio Holmes and Plaxico Burress, and no longer includes Braylon Edwards, Brad Smith and Jerricho Cotchery.

SB Nation's Jets website, Gang Green Nation, called the signing "an essential move." They wrote:

At this point, Santonio Holmes was the only thing proven in the wide receiving corps. After him were Plaxico Burress coming off two straight missed seasons and a bunch of young guys without track records. Mason provides some valuable insurance on that front.
