A source told The News that Derrick Mason's criticism of the offense coupled with his inability to grasp the playbook led to his ouster. Rex Ryan, who was on the Ravens staff when Mason was also with Baltimore - cited rookie Jeremy Kerley's potential as the primary reason for the Jets' decision to move on from the veteran receiver.

Here’s some coverage from last night about the Derrick Mason trade, including reaction from SNY’s Ray Lucas.
The New York Jets have traded veteran wide receiver Derrick Mason to the Houston Texans for an undisclosed draft pick.
Mason had appeared in five games with New York after he left Baltimore to sign with the Jets during the offseason.
Mason is expected to provide depth for the Texans, who are currently missing star wideout Andre Johnson because of injury.
This season, Mason has...
Two months ago, the Jets talked about Derrick Mason catching 100 passes and being like a third starting wide receiver.
Yesterday, they tried to explain why they dumped him eight weeks later, trading the wide receiver to the Texans on Tuesday. But the spin coming from the Jets did not...
Only days after he reportedly was benched for running his mouth, receiver Derrick Mason has been shipped to the Texans, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. Per McClain, the Jets traded Mason to the Texans for a conditional draft choice. The move caps a surreal series of events in which: (1) the New…
With Derrick Mason traded, it can be easy in retrospect to just whitewash what happened and blithely say that this will make the team better in the long run — thereby assuaging any concerns we have about just how the Jets offense is currently struggling.

A person familiar with the deal tells The Associated Press that the New York Jets have agreed to trade wide receiver Derrick Mason to the Houston Texans for an undisclosed draft pick.

Digs gives some last thoughts...
The Jets keep looking dumber and dumber on this Derrick Mason deal, denying the existence or impact of events that surely influence their decision-making process. Rex Ryan, as much as he hates to admit it, turns out to be like most other pro football coaches when the temperature flares. He has his limits.
New York Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley recorded his first career touchdown reception and Andy Dalton let the Bengals to a win over the Jaguars in Week 5.
On if Jeremy Kerley paid his own way out to their Jets West camp…
I think so. I’m probably giving him more credit than he deserves (joking), but he was out there, regardless. He was out there and he spent the time. He just got drafted and he really didn’t know any of the guys well, but he came out and he put in the work.
