Trade talks for Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey reportedly advancing

It might be time to start preparing yourselves, Carolina Panthers fans.

Early Thursday afternoon, two different reports hinted towards a possible trade of running back Christian McCaffrey. The first came from Pro Football Network’s Aaron Wilson, who has been told by sources that a move may actually be materializing.

Then, about an hour later, Molly Cotten of 730 The Game ESPN Charlotte came through with a similar tweet—one that’s a bit more hot and heavy:

That 48-hour timeframe is a pretty odd window, considering it’s already Thursday. Carolina is right in the middle of preparations for their Week 7 matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which is now approximately 71 hours out.

But, with the trade deadline less than two weeks away, contenders looking for a big boost must starting find help quickly. And that could be the case for two teams that’ve already been linked to McCaffrey—the Buffalo Bills and the Los Angeles Rams, both of whom are currently on a bye.

So, has the plot officially thickened?
