Ravens sign FB/TE Ben Mason, a 2021 draft pick, to reserve/future deal – The Mercury News

Almost five months after leaving Baltimore, Ben Mason is a Raven again. The fullback-tight end, a fifth-round pick of the Ravens last year who bounced around in his rookie season, joined the team’s 90-man offseason roster Friday after signing a reserve/future deal.

Mason, the No. 184 overall pick, was the final selection of the Ravens’ 2021 draft class. But the Michigan product struggled to make an impact in the preseason, and he was waived at the end of training camp. Rather than sign with the Ravens’ practice squad, Mason headed to New England’s.

He never appeared in a game for the Patriots, who released him in November. Mason joined the Chicago Bears’ practice squad in December but was not signed to a reserve/future deal at the end of the season.

The 6-foot-3, 256-pound Mason is a potential replacement for Pro Bowl fullback Patrick Ricard, a pending free agent. Under offensive coordinator Greg Roman, the Ravens have typically used heavier personnel packages that showcase versatile blockers.
