2. Charlie Woerner, TE

This signing caught fans off guard, especially when they saw that he signed a three-year, $12 million contract. That is a significant chunk of change for a guy who is limited as a receiving threat.

Every team needs a good blocking tight end, which is exactly what Charlie Woerner is. However, not many commit three years and eight figures to them. There are usually cheaper options out there.
