Yes, it's just not that common for a player to get one for more than minimum. You could sign someone to a 10 year deal if you wanted to, there's really no limit.

With a 1-year deal, you get a rental and can dump him with no 2nd year cap ramifications, right?
Well, I would think a team would do a 2 year deal with the first having some guaranteed money, say 3 million, and the second year having 6 million non-guaranteed. Include a 1 million signing bonus, spread over the 2 years, and the cost to cut him is minimal. It's a "prove it" type contract that's low risk for the team, but provides incentive for the player. If he works out well, great the team keeps him for the next year, if not, no big deal.

Barwin might wind up with something like this, and Jacoby had one similar before he was cut.

I don't see him nor his agent agreeing to that sort of deal, frankly, but wondering if it would even be viable as an option for a team who wants to kick the tires first. I really think Houston should have gone this route with Peyton Manning, btw.
Peyton is a good example. The Broncos took an 18 million dollar gamble last year on Peyton. He signed a 5 year deal which was voidable after the first year if he didn't pass the physical. That means they were insured against injury of the neck, or really any other part of his body. It was a smart move, but the size of the deal made it worth it for Peyton. Now he's getting 20 million this year and next, which is now guaranteed because he passed that physical.
