Mason wipes brief time with Jets from his memory
Derrick Mason made his Houston Texans debut on Sunday in a 29-14 loss to one of his former teams, the Baltimore Ravens.
This week, Mason and the Texans will visit another former team of his - the Tennessee Titans.
But as for the New York Jets, Mason, who was traded last week to Houston by the Jets, said that time never existed in his mind.

"To me, I went from Baltimore to here [the Texans]," Mason told the New York Post. "I don't know what you're talking about when you mention that other place, but this place here I'm excited about.
"The two teams that I've played for -- Tennessee (where he spent his first eight seasons) and Baltimore (where he spent the last six) --that's all I care about. They respected what I did as a player -- inside the locker room, on the field and outside the locker room. That's all I care about.
"What went on with that other team . . . it won't tarnish my career, not one bit."
