The Panthers are listening to other teams about a potential trade for star running back Christian McCaffrey.
With the Panthers at 1-4 and Matt Rhule fired, major changes are on the way and their running back might be the first to go. However, it won’t come cheap.
During Sunday morning’s edition of “SportsCenter,” ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter spoke on the situation regarding McCaffrey and revealed that they’ve already turned down two teams because their offer wasn’t good enough.
“At this point in time, the Panthers are at least listening,” Schefter said. “Now, it’s going to take a significant haul to pry loose McCaffrey. They’re not having a firesale, they’re not just going to give him away. Unless they get what they want in return for Christian McCaffrey, they won’t deal him. So, they’re happy to hold on to him, but other teams have called. The Panthers told two teams this last week, ‘No, your offer’s not good enough.’ We’ll see what develops from this point on.”
The Panthers are seeking high draft picks in exchange for McCaffrey, who has four years and $63.338 million remaining on his contract.
McCaffrey has played all five games this season, rushing 72 times for 324 yards and two touchdowns while pulling down 26 passes for 188 yards and a score.
Just 26 years old, McCaffrey could be the missing piece toward a team winning a Super Bowl championship.
