Jaguar Mason-ry?

Per fanball

 

Jaguars' senior vice president Paul Vance recently contacted agent Peter Shaffer regarding former Titans' wide receiver Derrick Mason, according to the Florida Times-Union. The Titans released Mason earlier this week in a cost-cutting move, and the Jags are now pursuing him as a free agent.

 

 

OUR VIEW

 

Mason playing opposite Jimmy Smith would be appealing for fantasy owners, and would certainly increase the fantasy value of quarterback Byron Leftwich. Several teams are interested in Mason, but the fact that his former wide receivers coach Steve Walters is now working in the same capacity for the Jags could be the deciding factor. Jacksonville has roughly $20 million in salary cap space available, so they can afford to be more aggressive with Mason than most teams.

 

YO MAMA'S VIEW

 

Leftwich was already having a stellar year (pre-injury) with only one legit WR for the Jags. With the reduced dependence on the run game last year (Fred Taylor's prospects scare me this year even more than last) we could see even more of a passing attack out of the Jags next year. Sure, its totally speculative to say that. But *if* Mason landed in Jacksonville, Leftwich would be someone you'd HAVE to keep an eye on as an early #2 QB pick up, or - if you waited until late in the draft to pick up a QB - perhaps even a #1.

Did Reggie Williams die?

No, he didn't die. But he started in 15 games last year, yet only caught 27 passes for 268 yards 1 TD. Whether Mason played opposite Jimmy Smith, or in lieu of him, I think he'd be a nice addition to the Jags' passing game.

I saw him play. It's gonna take some time with him. He's definitely one of those guys who will blossom in his third year, or be a huge bust. Jags definitely reached a little in the draft last year to take him as early as they did.
