He might have beaten out Keyshawn, but he wasn't going to beat out Walter. I don't think Kubiak would have given him the opportunities. But TPN has a good point, Martin had plenty of opportunities to make plays. If Hilton would have got those opportunities he'd have been a star. But we still would have stuck to our two TE sets, with KW as WR2
I don't think he would have suffered the same injury, just throwing it out there because that's what stopped Posey. An unrelated injury that could have happened to anyone. I don't think we can hold it against Rick Smith that Posey was injured & Hilton was not.
