Carolina Panthers Acquire WR Louis Murphy From Oakland Raiders

The Carolina Panthers have an imposing deep threat to their arsenal today by acquiring wide receiver Louis Murphy from the Oakland Raiders for undisclosed compensation. News of the trade comes via  Jason Cole of Yahoo.com.

In his three-year career, Murphy has 90 catches and an impressive 15.2 yards per catch. He will provide the Panthesr with the deep speed that they could use in their passing attack.

This is the second time that the Panthers and Raiders have sent traded players. Earlier in the offseason, Carolina sent running back and return man Mike Goodson to the Bay Area in exchange for offensive lineman Bruce Campbell.
