Only time will tell. Let's be honest, usually signing a bunch of free agents to big contracts doesn't do a lot for an NFL team. That's why GM Grier MUST get it right in the NFL Draft these next two years. Do NOT trade up and lose valuable resources.

Best move: Signing arguably the best man corner in the league in Byron Joneshttps://www.pff.com/news/nfl-2020-nfl-f ... l-32-teams
After playing safety in his first few seasons, Byron Jones made the move to outside corner in 2018 and became one of the best corners in the NFL. Jones played more coverage snaps in press-man coverage than anyone else and posted the third-best coverage grade on such reps the last two seasons. Among outside cornerbacks to line up in press at least 250 times since 2018, Jones ranks second in yards per coverage snap. The price was incredibly high for Miami to lock up Jones (five-years, $82 million, $54 million guaranteed), but it was certainly worth it considering how valuable of a player Jones is and how perfectly he fits within Brian Flores’ defense.
Worst move: Signing Ereck Flowers for three-years, $30 million with $19.5 million guaranteed
Flowers played at left tackle during the first four seasons of his career before kicking over to left guard in 2019. In his four years at tackle, he ranked at or below the 50th percentile in our positional grades every single season and allowed an NFL-high 9.6% pressure rate. And he committed the third-most penalties for a tackle in that span. Sure, Flowers fared much better after his move to guard, but he still didn't display anything to suggest he should take home a contract like this. He ranked only 18th among 39 qualifying left guards in PFF overall grade last season.
