Demeco and Mario aren't in the same boat.

Mario signed a 6-year contract when he came out, so we have him locked up until after the 2011 season. I'm sure we'll want to renew him a year or two early, but three years is too soon - even for someone like Mario (Especially when he's already making #1 pick money) (And even more especially when a year from now, you'll be dealing with an uncapped year and/or a new CBA).

DeMeco's a completely different story - he's up after next year. I know that getting him re-upped this offseason is one of the highest priorities for Smith and Kubiak - just as it should be.
