McCaffrey on Rivera: "A heck of a leader and a gritty guy."
Christian McCaffrey is a stud. Ironically, two of his most tame games in the last few seasons have come against the Redskins.
However, make no mistake, he knows talent and quality when he sees it - because he oozes skill himself.
So when McCaffrey praises someone that drafted him and is now the Washington Redskins head coach, that should make everyone hopeful.
McCaffrey - a guest of the "Sports Junkies" on 106.7 The FAN and NBC Sports Washington Thursday morning.
He played for Rivera for almost three full seasons.
