Christian McCaffrey has made history as the highest-paid running back in the NFL!
The 23-year-old football player has been playing with the Carolina Panthers since he was drafted by the team in 2017. He just signed a four-year, $64 million extension, which means he is going to make $16 million a year.
The Dallas Cowboys’ Ezekiel Elliott was previously the highest-paid RB in the NFL at $15 million a year.
“I’m so excited to continue my career in Carolina. I want to thank Mr. Tepper, Marty Hurney, and Coach Rhule for the opportunity to help lead this great franchise, and to all my teammates for their help along the way. And to Panthers fans, KEEP POUNDING!” Christian said in a statement after the news was announced.
Christian is currently dating model and former Miss Universe winner, Olivia Culpo.
