According to reports, 2 strong teams are interested in running back Chrisitan McCaffrey.

In the near future, the NFC West might acquire a superstar running back.

The Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers have emerged as two teams "implicated" in a potential mega-trade featuring Christian McCaffrey, 

according to a report that appeared Tuesday morning from ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

Rams and 49ers "implicated" in possible CMC trade, according to NBC Sports EDGE's tweet on Tuesday.

Despite last week's allegations that the Panthers had begun McCaffrey trade negotiations, this information seems to indicate that Carolina is at least keeping their options open.

Given that the Los Angeles Rams, one of the teams listed in the article, appear to be moving on from running back Cam Akers, McCaffrey is definitely needed.

Los Angeles' backup options in the absence of Akers are Darrell Henderson and Malcolm Brown, neither of whom is averaging more than 3.9 yards per rush this year.

After filling in for an injured Elijah Mitchell in San Francisco, Jeff Wilson Jr. has had some success for the 49ers.

With the NFL trade deadline approaching on November 1st, Carolina will have a few weeks to make their ultimate choice on McCaffrey.
