He is coming off a major injury and I think the league's best defender(in his type of position) should be averaging a minimum of 10 sacks per year. Mario hasn't done that since the 2008 season and has steadily declined in that category to 9, to 8.5 to 5.0. In comparison Wake, who just got an extension for much less than what Mario got has been far more productive the past three seasons.

    Again, Mario is a very good player, but can he realistically live up to the hype?
    Texans didn't seem to miss him too much last season.

    To be fair, last year he tore a peck after 5 games and had a sack a game playing olb for the texans. I don't know what they have planned for him. He will likely move from lde to rde in some situations. He got paid in the neighbourhood of what he was going to get on the open market no matter who signed him. It probably is more than he is worth, but only half is gaurenteed.

    Wake is very good no doubt about that. He might be looking for a little more soon if he feels he's out performed his contract, Revis style. I hope not. But that precedent has been set and no team is immune.
