Those look to me like irises that have been out of the ground for a 
while and probably weren't freshly dug for your order, but the rhizomes 
look plump and healthy -- not dessicated at all.  I wouldn't hesitate 
to plant such rhizomes, and I'd expect strong growth from them.

Sometimes I'll dig all of the irises out of a bed to reamend the soil, 
then circumstances arise to delay the project, and the irises end up 
lying around my yard for a few weeks until the bed is ready for them to 
be replanted. When that happens, the rhizomes often end up looking like 
the ones in your pic before I get them back in the ground.  No problem. 
  Once planted and watered, they quickly recover and grow new roots.

Don't worry.  Yours will be fine.
