Week 6 was a trademark performance by Christian McCaffrey. The Carolina Panthers' star racked up 158 yards from scrimmage, doing serious damage on the ground and as a pass-catcher.

Some wondered after the game if the current trade rumors involving the running back played any role in his huge outing. McCaffrey responded to that speculation on Sunday.

McCaffrey shrugged off any rumors involving him, saying any potential trade is out of his control. It's clear the All-Pro RB isn't caught up with a possible move, since he's just focused on helping Carolina win right now.

"My job right now is to be the best Carolina Panther I can be and do everything I can for my teammates."

McCaffrey's mature approach to trade rumors is commendable. It'd be easy for the Panthers' current turmoil to make him want to get out of Carolina as fast as possible. Instead, he's saying all the right things and avoiding being a distraction to a team hoping to turn things around.

The tensions within the Panthers' organization are certainly rising after recent changes. Wide receiver Robbie Anderson had to be removed from the team's sideline on Sunday after getting in a coach's face. He's one of several players that have heard their names in trade rumors as the front office contemplates significant roster changes following the firing of Matt Rhule.

With the Nov. 1 trade deadline approaching, it'd be no surprise to see the 1-5 Panthers be very busy in acquiring assets for a new era.
