MONTREAL —The Montreal Impact will host French Cup champion Olympique Lyonnais
in July. Jake Long Jersey . The division-one club will
take on the Impact on July 24 at Saputo Stadium. Olympique Lyonnais is one of
Frances most successful clubs, having won a national record seven consecutive
titles from 2001-2008. Olympique Lyonnais follows Bordeaux, River Plate,
Fiorentina and AC Milan as the Impacts latest international opponent. Impact
president Joey Saputo said in a statement that the match is the latest step in
Montreals effort to develop a relationship with Ligue 1. “It is important for us
to organize international matches like weve done in the past,” he said
Wednesday. “We want to continue to build Montreal as an important market in
North America for international games.” Montreal has a 3-6-3 record in its debut
season in Major League Soccer. Ryan Tannehill Jersey . Hudson has bone spurs

Henrik Stenson shot a five-under 65 and shares fourth place with Ross McGowan,
who posted a 64 on Friday.OWINGS MILLS, Md. —Derrick Mason stepped into
retirement Monday as a member of the Baltimore Ravens, the team that provided
the sure-handed wide receiver the biggest thrills and most significant
friendships over his 15-year NFL career. Mason, 38, played eight seasons with
Tennessee before signing as a free agent with Baltimore in 2005. He never missed
a game over six seasons with the Ravens and is the team career leader with 471
catches and 5,777 yards receiving. He also ranks second with 29 touchdown
catches. After being released last year, Mason split time with the New York Jets
and Houston in 2011. But his spirit remained in Baltimore. Sitting between
Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome and head coach John Harbaugh, Mason bid
farewell to football at the Ravens training complex. “The decision wasnt hard to
retire, and the decision where to retire was just as easy,” Mason said. “My
heart was here. It never left. My body left, but my heart stayed right in this
room.” Mason thanked many of the people that helped him get through 230 NFL
games, including Newsome, Harbaugh, and Ravens defensive stars Ray Lewis and
Ed Reed. He also paid homage to quarterback Steve McNair, who threw passes to
Mason with Tennessee and Baltimore. “I cant leave without thanking Steve,” Mason
said. “Him and I, more or less, grew up together in the game of football my
first eight years and one here. Because of him, my numbers are what they are.
Because he looked for me, he trusted me, he counted on me. I hope I never failed
him. He will always be No. 1 with me.” Mason briefly retired in 2009, days after
McNair was killed in a murder-suicide in Tennessee. Mason ranks 11th on the NFL
career list with 943 catches. He amassed 12,061 yards receiving and scored 66
touchdowns. He is also the only player in NFL history with at least 5,000 yards
in returns and 10,000 yards receiving. “My run is over. It was a good one,” he
said. “Im happy.” Newsome has been in charge of player personnel for the Ravens
since the team moved from Cleveland in 1996. Although he has signed hundredds of
free agents, he cant remember anyone who made more of an impact on the
organization than Mason.dddddddddddd. “I dont know if theres any one player over
the span of their career that did more for this organization than
Derrick Mason,” Newsome said. Mason didnt possess world-class speed. He was only
5-foot-10, so he wasnt a tall target. But he was a quarterbacks best friend,
mainly because of attention to detail and his ability to pull down the football
in the middle of a crowd. When Baltimore drafted Joe Flacco and thrust him into
the starters role, Mason quickly became the rookies favourite target. “Derrick
was a guy he could count on, a guy who was going to be where he was supposed to
be,” Harbaugh said. “Ive never seen a better route-runner in football. A young
quarterback could trust that hes going to be at the right depth, hes going to
come out of his break quickly, hes going to be where you expect him to be, and
hes going to catch the ball.” Mason wasnt ready to quit last July after the
Ravens released him in a cost-cutting move. He latched on with the Jets, was
cut, then finished up with Houston in a dreary season that was significant only
in that it proved to Mason that it was time to retire. “The year didnt go the
way I wanted it to, but it went the way it should have went,” he said. “I
believe God has something else for me, and I believe there was a lesson I had to
learn last year. I learned it. I was able to mentally prepare myself to retire.”
Asked what it meant to be the franchise leader in catches and yards receiving,
in addition to owning the top three receiving seasons by a Raven, Mason replied,
“It means that the people who were throwing to me had enough confidence that I
would go and catch the ball, and the people calling the plays trusted that I
would be where I need to me.” Mason would like to be recognized not for his
numbers, but for the way he played the game. “It was fun,” he said. “I want to
be remembered as a guy who went out there and did his job the way he knew how—
hard and fast.”. ’ ’ ’
