49ers reward RB Christian McCaffrey with 2-year extension

Running back Christian McCaffrey, the NFL's reigning Offensive Player of the Year, has reset the running back market for the second time in four years by signing a two-year contract deal with the San Francisco 49ers.  

The Niners confirmed the deal (but did not reveal the financial terms) on Tuesday afternoon,

just after sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter that the deal -- which averages $19 million over the two additional years -- was finalized.  

In addition to the two extra years (2026 and 2027), the Niners increased McCaffrey's salary by $8 million over what he was due to make in 2024 and 2025,   

while also adding $24 million in guarantees, sources informed Schefter.  

WME negotiated the contract, which followed his 2020 agreement with the Carolina Panthers, which also established a record for running back salaries.  

After the 49ers finished the first day of their mandated minicamp, a comfortable McCaffrey expressed how important it is to him to continue lifting the bar at his position.  

The deal will keep McCaffrey with the 49ers until 2027. McCaffrey has two years left on his lucrative pact with the Panthers before to the restructured deal.
