Yup. I've been saying this for months... anybody expecting anything from Mario this season will be dissapointed. He may not step on the field at all this season, and even if he does he won't be 100% in terms of speed.
We have to go into this draft with the expectation that Mario will not contribute in 2013.
Same goes with Kyle as well and what if we have more injuries this season ? We would be deep in it. There is no doubt in my mind that we MUST draft a WR !!
And neither of them are under contract after 2013. We should extend/IR Ham while he's cheap and expect him to be a factor in 2014, or cut him loose to save cap/roster space for the young guys we will count on in the future. KW is loved throughout the locker room, and is supposed to be ready by camp. If he is, and he looks good, I would extend him for cheap for a few more years. It would be nice to lock-up a tough, quick slot guy with return skills on the cheap, if possible. Right now, I think we can count on Crab, Q, and Jenkins this year. I want to like Lockette, and I hope KW is ready. Even if we keep both of those guys, a roster spot remains for a rookie (assuming Ham starts the season on the PUP or IR) that will be here BEYOND 2013 (Crab and Jenkins are the only WRs signed past this year).
