Look: Christian McCaffrey Sends First Message To 49ers Fans Since Trade

NFL running back Christian McCaffrey

It's been less than 24 hours since the San Francisco 49ers and Carolina Panthers shook up the NFL landscape with a blockbuster deal.

Running back Christian McCaffrey is now a 49er. 

Friday morning, McCaffrey arrived in San Francisco and offered a message for 49er fans on social media.

"Touched down in The Bay! Feels good to be back! Bang Bang Niner Gang
God is Good" -- Christian McCaffrey

McCaffrey's tweet comes a few hours after he posted a heartfelt goodbye message to Carolina Panthers fans.

McCaffrey referenced being back in the Bay Area. He played his college football at Stanford, located about an hour south of San Francisco.

The fact that McCaffrey has already arrived in the area further supports reports that the 49ers will try to get him on the field as soon as Sunday, albeit in a limited fashion, when they host the Kansas City Chiefs.

San Francisco fans are likely counting down the minutes until their new weapon makes his 49ers debut.
