Good!! Low risk, high reward. They are trying,time will tell.
That's why I like most of these signings. Will they pan out on the field? Who knows but most of them are 1 year deals and they plug in areas of need or depth. If the guy doesn't pan out, you move on and don't cripple yourself in locking up guys like Garrett long-term.
I'm not completely sure of when you can extend a player off his rookie contract but, if possible, I'd extend Chubb for 2 more years right NOW. Teams usually get about 5 peak years out of a bell cow RB before they show the wear or want a big payday. Lock Chubb up for 5 years (total, on a modest, but cheaper contract) and see where he's at after that.
I'll also say I'm surprised at these guys in FA. Berry & Stefanski seem to be in lock step and the analytics of the Sashi Era hasn't reared it's ugly head. That may change come draft time if they trade down from #10 three or four times.
