- Rivera reaffirmed he’s looking to add help for RB Christian McCaffrey, ideally someone with a similar skillset: “The guy played over 90 percent of the snaps and we have to be smart about it. … I’d love to have a guy that mimics what he does so you don’t miss him when he’s not out there.” (Person)
