Nothing official from the Raiders yet but Yahoo!’s Jason Cole reports Louis Murphy is on his way to Carolina.
This marks not only the end of Murphy’s days in Silver and Black but it’s already the second swap Reggie McKenzie has made with the Panthers. Previously the Raiders dealt Bruce Campbell for Mike Goodson. The Murphy deal is said to involve a draft pick or two coming Oakland’s way.
For Murphy there was nothing that guaranteed he’d even be on the 53-man once camp ended. Last season saw Murphy struggle with both his health and the ability to find a role in a suddenly stacked receiving corps.
UPDATE: The Raiders have confirmed the trade of Murphy to the Panthers for an undisclosed draft pick.
