Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Workload may be scaled back
Rivera's comments occurred at the combine, a sign the Panthers are taking an interest in finding a suitable (and cheap) option to supplement the backfield. He added that McCaffrey won't necessarily experience a reduction in touches, but he'll likely defer some snaps to another running back to get the occasional breather. He played at least 90 percent of the team's offensive snaps in 14 games last season -- including all of them eight times -- en route to the third-most touches (326) in the league. The 22-year-old will be well-served in the long term if Carolina brings in some relief this offseason.
