It appears Christian McCaffrey will be rocking a new number in the Bay Area.
McCaffrey, the newest San Francisco 49ers running back, wore No. 5 at Stanford and No. 22 for the Carolina Panthers.
Some have speculated he'd pick either of those options or maybe even go with No. 2. However, it appears he's made up his mind and will go with an entirely new number.
McCaffrey is listed as No. 23 on the 49ers' depth chart. Barring a last-minute change, that will be his number in San Francisco.
"With the trade now official, new 49ers’ RB Christian McCaffrey will be wearing No. 23 in San Francisco," said ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Number jersey isn't important, of course. But it's always fun to see what the players decide.
Here's a first look at McCaffrey in a 49ers uniform wearing No. 23.
San Francisco running back Jeff Wilson currently wears No. 22 for the 49ers. It's possible he either didn't want to give it up or McCaffrey was fine with a new number.
