Shaq Mason is entering his ninth NFL season, the last three of which have been with three different teams. The former fourth-rounder was traded to the Houston Texans in March 2023 after spending 2022 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and 2015-21 with the New England Patriots.

Shaq Mason Salary

Mason’s base salary for 2023 is $7.5 million. It’s the final season of a five-year, $45-million deal signed while with the Patriots.

The Bucs restructured Mason’s contract before the 2022 season, impacting his salary and cap hit for 2023. 

Shaq Mason Cap Hit

Mason carries a cap hit of $8,500,000 in 2023.

As a result of his restructuring with the Bucs, Mason holds three void years with a dead cap hit of $3,228,000 starting in 2024. 

Shaq Mason Potential Extension

Mason is in a contract year. However, the former fourth-round pick’s perceived value is low after Tampa Bay dealt him to a non-contender for a late-round pick.

Durability has been a hallmark of Mason’s success. If he can stay healthy again in 2023 and limit the pressure on the Texans’ quarterback, he could earn another multi-year deal.
