This offseason, the Las Vegas Raiders decided to part ways with veteran quarterback Derek Carr, resulting in Carr ultimately signing with the New Orleans Saints, who were very much in need of help at the quarterback position. The Saints undoubtedly hope that Carr will provide a boost to the offense, but one recently-surfaced stat paints a pretty brutal picture of Carr’s red zone performance last year.

As football analyst Warren Sharp pointed out on Twitter this week, Derek Carr actually had the worst completion percentage in the NFL on throws inside the 10-yard line last year.

As the numbers show, Carr completed just 33 percent of his throws inside the 10-yard line last year, putting him dead last in the league among quarterbacks with at least 20 trips inside the 10-yard line.

It’s a pretty brutal bit of news about Carr, and the NFL world had plenty to say about it on Twitter.

The Saints and Carr will obviously be hoping this improves this season.
