Panthers tight end Greg Olsen posted a funny tweet when he realized that he wore rookie running back Christian McCaffrey’s number in 1993 – three years before McCaffrey was even born.
Olsen, who’s 32 years old, wrote that he realized he was McCaffrey before McCaffrey.
The 21-year-old responded perfectly.
And the Panthers had a great GIF to add.
Well done, everyone.
On a more serious note, in an interview with For The Win‘s Steven Ruiz, Olsen shared what he likes about McCaffrey:
“I think the physical stuff with him, we all expected that. We all watched him play enough in college, his highlights, to know that he was pretty special with the ball in his hands. Just his approach, his demeanor for a young kid. Coming in as a rookie, 21 years old. He has a different look in his eye than some of the other rookies. It’s pretty clear that he knows he belongs. He’s been around this game for a long time growing up with his dad [former Broncos receiver Ed McCaffrey]. He’s a little bit different from the traditional rookie, and he’s a guy who’s caught everyone’s attention from early on.”
