Christian Mccaffrey gets record-breaking extension with panthers
Carolina Panthers running back, and basically the entire team at this point, Christian McCaffrey agreed to a four-year, $64 million contract extension with the team, making him the highest-paid running back in the National Football League.
Being that he's basically a running back and a wide receiver in one, I'm not sure there's another running back in the entire league that is worth that much money. The problem with paying a back a giant contract is that they're so easily replaceable (see: the Pittsburgh Steelers and their situation with Le'Veon Bell and James Conner). But, McCaffrey is the exception and is well worth the dollars.
