Bills Trade With Christian McCaffrey
As soon as the Carolina Panthers fired head coach Matt Rhule On Monday, immediately some sparking rumors were in the news that the Bills were trying to trade for star Christian McCaffrey.
Throughout Monday, many conflicting reports were out, such as the Bills trying to reach the Panthers about the deal and the team denying they had. In reality, the Panthers reported that they hadn’t contacted any team about the Christian’s trade.
However, the rumors were there for some reason. Even the Buffalo inquired about Christian in the offseason, and Brandon Beane considered Christian one of the best picks he made while with the Panthers.
It’s unclear if the Carolina Panthers are ready to go with a full-on rebuild, but if they are and Christian can be had in a trade, it makes sense for Buffalo to try and make a move. Further, it could be the final step that helps lead them to that ever-elusive Super Bowl title.
