Edward Thomas McCaffrey (born August 17, 1968 in Waynesboro, Pennsylvania) is a former American football wide receiver who played for the New York Giants (1991-1993), San Francisco 49ers (1994) and the Denver Broncos (1995-2003) of the National Football League.

High school and collegiate football

McCaffrey played high school football at Allentown Central Catholic High School in Allentown, Pennsylvania, where he competed in the East Penn Conference (now known as the Lehigh Valley Conference) in Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley.

He then played college football at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California and, in 1991, was named an All-American. At Stanford, he was a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity.

Professional career

McCaffrey was drafted by the Giants in the third round (83rd overall) in the 1991 NFL Draft. During his thirteen year career, he won three Super Bowl rings (in Super Bowl XXIX, XXXII and XXXIII) and made a Pro Bowl appearance in 1998. At Denver, he became a reliable target for quarterback John Elway. He set a Broncos record for most receptions in a season (with 101 receptions in 2000), and had an exceptional performance in Super Bowl XXXIII, recording five catches for 72 yards. Also in 2000, McCaffrey and teammate Rod Smith became only the second wide receiver duo from the same team to each gain 100 receptions in the same season (see Herman Moore and Brett Perriman).

On September 10, 2001, McCaffrey suffered a compound leg fracture while playing a Monday Night Football game with the Broncos against the Giants. In sustaining the injury, he made a spectacular catch and did not fumble the ball. He rebounded in the 2002 season with 69 receptions and 903 yards. Hampered by injuries, Ed retired on February 29, 2004, after a disappointing 2003 season. McCaffrey finished his career with 565 career receptions for 7,422 yards and 55 touchdowns while wearing the number 87.

McCaffrey is the oldest of five children. He has two brothers and two sisters: Monica of Georgetown University Women's Basketball, Billy McCaffrey, a former Duke and Vanderbilt college basketball player, Michael and Meghan.
