Christian McCaffrey, Panthers have discussed contract extension
The Carolina Panthers are facing an uncertain future, but there is some interest in locking down their undisputed star player.
Panthers GM Marty Hurney admitted that the Panthers have had internal discussions with McCaffrey’s agent about a possible contract extension as the running back enters the final guaranteed year of his rookie contract.
Also, this from Marty Hurney conference call talking about Christian McCaffrey's contract. He said while he doesn't ever discuss contracts, he did say "obviously we've had internal discussions. Everybody knows what we think of Christian as a player."

McCaffrey is indispensible to the Panthers. He had 2,392 total yards and 19 touchdowns in 2019 on his way to his first All-Pro selection.
The Panthers may have designs on being bad for a year, but they can’t afford to lose McCaffrey in the long term. It would be in their best interest to get this done as soon as possible.
