Jets | Derrick Mason critical of locker room

Tue, 10 Jan 2012 06:32:07 -0800

Former NFL WR Derrick Mason said the New York Jets' locker room was dysfunctional, and he believes the dysfunction that continued after he was traded was evidence that he was used as a scapegoat. "They were a mess," Mason said. "It was a cluster you-know-what. You don't see stuff like this, it's not the norm. Before I left, you could see it materializing. Things heated up. If I was the problem, it would have stopped. If I was the guy complaining, it would have stopped. I wasn't the cancer in the locker room."
