Trade one of the top 3 OLBs for top pick(s) and save money.
Sign a big FA WE in 2013 or trade 2 first rounders for one single higher pick to draft the best WR prospect in 2013?

AJ/Bowe/Wright/Jordan White/Walter looks pretty good to me.
Barwin/Cush/Ryan(prob re-negotiate)/Reed/Vinny Curry
You've got to sign Mario before you can trade him.
That's why I brought up that scenario.
With another season for Barwin, Reed, (hopefully Brahman, too) and/or the rookie OLB "we're going to draft this year" to grow up, we can then trade Mario during the next off-season after we win the SB.
Don't forget that my scenario also includes drafting a WR in one of the first two rounds this year.
