Pundits nationwide aren’t the only ones expecting big things from the Ravens this year.

Veteran wide receiver Derrick Mason wasn’t shy about making his expectations known during an interview with 105.7 The Fan.

“Anything less than a Super Bowl win, really, is a disappointment to us,” Mason said.

As fans well know, Baltimore reached the AFC championship in 2008, then the Divisional playoffs last season.

“I think we’ve done more than enough over the last three years to put ourselves in a position to win a championship,” Mason said. “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, 36, made it clear that he was coming back for a championship when he signed a two-year deal with the Ravens this offseason. He says he isn’t the only Baltimore veteran playing for that reason.

“I know a lot of the older guys on this team want to win a championship before they hang their cleats up,” Mason said.

Ed Reed and Todd Heap are two longtime Ravens who have not won championships. Other veterans such as Matt Birk, Shayne Graham, Walt Harris and Anquan Boldin have come to Baltimore without any rings.

“I just feel we are primed, and put together a great team. This is our opportunity to win a championship.”
