ALAMEDA – Duke receiver Max McCaffrey is Ed McCaffrey’s son.
He plays the same position as his father and, after going undrafted, was expected to play for the same team.
Ed McCaffrey was one of the most popular Denver Broncos receivers in recent memory. Max McCaffrey grew up in the Denver area, and it seemed logical he’d sign with the hometown club.
Instead, he signed with the Raiders. The decision wasn’t popular in Denver, but he has a solid chance to make the Raiders as a receiver or a kick returner. The Raiders need depth at both spots.
The signing will keep Max McCaffrey close to another popular football-playing family member. His brother Christian McCaffrey is Stanford’s feature running back and was a Heisman Trophy finalist.
Max McCaffrey was a standout receiver at Duke, recording 52 catches for 643 yards and five touchdowns.
The Raiders have 64 players under contract and just drafted seven players, leaving 19 possible spots for undrafted free agents.
