Panthers acquired WR Louis Murphy from the Raiders.
The Raiders' compensation is likely a late-round pick. The trade comes three weeks after the Contra Costa Times reported Murphy was in a "fight" for his roster spot, and greatly increases undrafted rookie Rod Streater's chances of cracking Oakland's 53-man roster. The move could be interpreted as a lack of faith from Carolina in Brandon LaFell and David Gettis, but the reality is Murphy is little more than a depth acquisition for one of the league's thinner receiver corps. He'll have an inside track on a roster spot, but will have to stay healthy, something that has proven challenging for him his first three years in the league.
