Free agents are free agents for a reason.
They're generally garbage or close to retirement.
I'd sooner we looked at players out of contract next summer, or summer 23 if we're feeling particularly flush.
….free agents are often very shrewd players who run down their contracts so that they can move on lucrative Bosman terms.
Free agents who are still free agents a month after the window closes are often in the category you describe.
