Christian McCaffrey

NFL star Christian McCaffrey is heading back to the Bay Area. 

The Stanford product and Carolina Panthers star is being traded to the San Francisco 49ers. 

Details surrounding the blockbuster trade are starting to emerge. The Niners are going all-in, to say the least. 

The 49ers are sending a number of picks to the Panthers, including: a 2023 second-round, third-round and fourth-round pick. Carolina is also receiving a fifth-round pick in 2024. 

A massive deal that has wide-spread implications throughout the rest of the NFL. 

Running back health has been an issue for the 49ers these past few years. Regardless, the NFC West franchise has maintained one of the best rushing attacks in the League. Now imagine what it will be capable of with Christian McCaffrey in the backfield. 

The 49ers are now easily one of the top contenders for the Super Bowl. Their offense includes Brandon Aiyuk, Deebo Samuel, George Kittle and now McCaffrey.
