Mason suggests it's Super Bowl or bust for Ravens


OWINGS MILLS -- Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Derrick Mason declared that anything short of a Super Bowl victory this season would render the entire season a failure.

The two-time Pro Bowl selection is certainly aiming high.

The Ravens have become a trendy Super Bowl contender in league circles after acquiring Anquan Boldin via a trade this offseason,"Anything less than a Super Bowl win, really, is a disappointment to us," Mason told 105.7 FM.

"I think we've done more than enough over the last three years to put ourselves in a position to win a championship. To do all we've done and not come out of this thing with a championship would be disheartening, especially for me because I'm looking at one, two years tops before I leave."

Mason signed a two-year contract this offseason. Now, he's looking to finish his career on top.

"I know a lot of the older guys on this team want to win a championship before they hang their cleats up," Mason said. "I just feel we are primed, and put together a great team. This is our opportunity to win a championship."

Of course, the New York Jets, Indianapolis Colts, San Diego Chargers, New England Patriots and the Cincinnati Bengals will have something to say about that in the AFC. Not to mention the NFC competitors vying for a Super Bowl berth.
