The San Francisco 49ers just became a no-doubt Super Bowl contender. 

The storied NFC West franchise has acquired Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey in a blockbuster deal. He returns to the Bay Area after playing his college ball at Stanford. 

George Kittle, McCaffrey's new teammate and 49ers tight end, is clearly excited about the major acquisition. 

He is welcoming McCaffrey to San Francisco via Twitter this Thursday night. 

"Let’s gooooooo @CMC_22," Kittle said on Twitter.

The best part for the 49ers is Christian McCaffrey will likely make his debut for the Niners this Sunday, per NFL insider Ian Rapoport. 

"New #49ers RB Christian McCaffrey, who has already spoken to coach Kyle Shanahan and team brass, travels tomorrow to his new home. If he plays Sunday, which he likely will do, expect a red zone package. Then he'll ramp up from there," said Rapoport

McCaffrey joins a San Francisco offense that features elite weapons like George Kittle, Deebo Samuel and rising-star Brandon Aiyuk. 

The Niners battle the Chiefs this Sunday afternoon.
