But yes, no need to go into the remaining FAs instead of the draft to get a slot WR.
Martin was one of the few guys other than a first rounder to get that sort of trust from Kubes. He generally worked his rookies in slowly and built up trust. He did that with Martin but at an accelerated rate and then Martin totally and completely let him down.
