A voice from the NFC North pours cold water on the Arizona Cardinals' contract agreement with veteran running back Chester Taylor.

Turns out Taylor's 2.38-yard average with the Chicago Bears last season was the worst since the 1970 NFL merger among running backs with at least 100 carries in a season.

Expanding the Pro Football Reference filter to include games since 1920 and players of any position, we see names such as Abner Haynes, Bob Monnett, Eddie Price and Davey O'Brien.

Taylor did have a 24-yard run last season, against Seattle in Week 6. His longest run the rest of the season covered 11 yards. Taylor, 31, had 95- and 84-yard touchdown runs while with Minnesota in the mid-2000s.
