Veteran WR Derrick Mason decided to sign with the Jets on Saturday. ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the news.

"I'm looking forward to working under Rex and rejoining some familiar faces," Mason said.

On his Twitter, Mason wrote, "Jet fuel is full time to fly!!!!"

The 37-year-old hasn't missed a game since 2002. The Jets wil be the third team of his 15-year career.

Mason has 11,891 career receiving yards and 66 receiving scores. Last season, Mason had 61 catches for 802 yards and seven touchdowns with the Ravens.

The Jets cut veteran Jerricho Cotchery, and brought in Mason for a workout on Thursday. He reportedly was deciding between the Ravens, Titans and Jets.

The way we see it

Mason proved last year that he still has plenty left in the tank and can still be a productive receiver. With Cotchery, Braylon Edwards and Brad Smith gone, the Jets had a big need to fill at wideout. Mason joins Plaxico Burress and Santonio Holmes as Mark Sanchez's top receivers.
