Christian McCaffrey’s Family Thinks He will be Traded to a Team


Last month, the San Francisco 49ers shocked the nation by acquiring star running back Christian McCaffrey from the Carolina Panthers. But among those most surprised by his ending, his own family may be at the top of the list.

Christian McCaffrey #23 of the San Francisco 49ers rushes the ball in the first quarter against the Kansas City Chiefs at Levi’s Stadium on October 23, 2022 in Santa Clara, California.

According to 95.7 The Game, McCaffrey’s mother, Lisa, admitted that the family firmly believed he would go to the Los Angeles Rams. Lisa McCaffrey said between her son’s fondness for Rams receiver Cooper Cooper and his own agent’s belief that the Rams would make a deal, she heard of him being traded to the 49ers Shocked.

“He’s obsessed with Cooper Cooper, and I’m sure everyone is,” Lisa said. “He just made someone do 3,000 games, like every Cooper Cooper since he was born. Same game, or something ridiculous. So we took an hour drive and just said why the Rams were a good fit. He said, ‘I could work out with Cooper Cooper in the offseason and it would be great .’”

“I called his agent, leaned his back against the wall and said, ‘Who do you think it would be with the knife on your throat?’” Lisa said. “He’s still reluctant to answer, but I’ll say it, and now I’ll say the Rams.”

“When I picked up the phone, I thought, ‘Oh my God, where?’” Lisa said. “He said ‘nine,’ and I freaked out. From the top of my body to the bottom, I thought it was the Rams, maybe the Bills, but we still don’t know. I don’t think it’s going to happen. I really, really I didn’t have faith in John Lynch, but I love John Lynch, my favorite new guy in the world. And Kyle. And Peggy (Shanahan), obviously.”

Christian McCaffrey settled into his new team effortlessly, recording 149 yards in scrimmage and scoring touchdowns as a passer, rusher and receiver.

It might not be the game they were expecting, but early results suggest that McCaffrey and the 49ers are the perfect match anyway.
