The Carolina Panthers just signed McCaffrey to a lucrative rookie deal, and he practiced for the first time in rookie minicamp.

The reviews so far are overwhelmingly positive.

We’re betting Christian McCaffrey juked the poor guy right out of his cleats. His blazing speed was noted as well.

Prior to taking the field with his helmet in hand, McCaffrey stopped to say a little prayer.

Before all that, McCaffrey took a few moments to greet his fans and even stop for a quick photo.

Things already seem to be looking up the Carolina Panthers offense. McCaffrey should make an immediate impact and will greatly aid in relieving pressure on quarterback Cam Newton.
