A blockbuster trade was just announced during the final minutes of Thursday Night Football.
Reported first by Adam Schefter, the Carolina Panthers are sending Christian McCaffrey to the San Francisco 49ers.
"Stunner: Panthers are trading Pro-Bowl RB Christian McCaffrey to the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for draft picks, sources tell ESPN. McCaffrey returns to the Bay Area, where he attended Stanford," Adam Schefter reported Thursday night.
McCaffrey will join the 49ers and provide another offensive weapon for Kyle Shanahan to utilize alongside Deebo Samuel and George Kittle.
The 2019 All-Pro is averaging 4.6 yards per carry in 2022 and will add a pass-catching element out of the San Fransisco backfield that is rivaled by very few other running backs in football.
