Ravens WR Mason says he's prepping for 15th NFL season

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Derrick Mason doesn't plan to retire despite the possibility of a lockout next season, he told WBAL-AM, according to the team's official website.

"No. Not really," Mason said Saturday on the radio station. "I haven't really given that much thought because I'm very optimistic that something will get done."

Mason, 37, said he is working out and maintaining his normal offseason routine.

"Business as usual," Mason said. "Nothing's no different for me. I'm going to continue to work out and continue to do the things I've been doing for the last 15 years -- being back in Nashville, working out, being with the family -- that's what I'm going to do."

Mason returned for a 14th season in 2010 after briefly contemplating retirement. He finished the season with 61 receptions for 802 yards and seven touchdowns.
