Christian McCaffrey has high expectations for himself and he let his teammates know exactly what his goals were before the season started.
“He told me straight up, he said one of his goals is to have 1,000 yards receiving and 1,000 yards rushing,” Cam Newton said at a press conference Tuesday.
Only two running backs have ever done that in NFL history. Roger Craig had 1,050 yards rushing and 1,016 yards receiving in 1985 with the 49ers while Marshall Faulk had 1,381 yards rushing and 1,048 yards receiving in 1999 with the Rams.
Newton fully expects McCaffrey to hit that mark, but he also has even loftier expectations for the all-purpose back.
