The Panthers made the announcement of the trade on Thursday night, which will bring McCaffrey back to the Bay Area, where he excelled in college while playing for Stanford. They said that it would become official after McCaffrey has a successful physical examination.
Christian McCaffrey, a standout running back for the Carolina Panthers, has been traded to the San Francisco 49ers by that team in exchange for a large number of draft choices.
According to a source familiar with the specifics of the deal, the Panthers will get draught selections in the second, third, and fourth rounds of the 2023 draught in addition to a fifth-round pick in the 2024 draught. The individual talked under the guise of anonymity due to the fact that the conditions were not made public.
Carolina had shown interest in acquiring a first-round selection, but San Francisco had already parted ways with their first-round pick for the 2023 draught in order to acquire Trey Lance in the previous season.
McCaffrey is the newest member of a superb collection of playmakers in San Francisco, which also includes standout tight end George Kittle, versatile receiver Deebo Samuel, and wide Brandon Aiyuk.
