The argument makes 0 sense. David Anderson is the proof that the position was important?
And you shouldn't keep players that are worse than other players. The slot receivers in this offense don't have to be little guys. Martin probably won't even play much if posey comes back and can play.
Martin hasn't even shown he can play the slot at a high level. He hasn't even flashed as a playmaker from that position. He's dropped a ton of balls when people are around him and he doesn't really catch the ball and pick up yac.
The threat to Martin is anyone that looks significantly better. He'll get the benefit if the doubt since he's a draft pick, but not because he's seen as some guru of the slot position.
