Raiders trade Louis Murphy to Panthers

The Oakland Raiders have traded veteran wide receiver Louis Murphy to the Carolina Panthers for conditional 2013 draft pick, the AFC West franchise announced. It's expected to be a later-round selection. The Raiders' primary wide receivers are Denarius Moore and Darrius Heyward-Bey.

A former fourth-round draft pick from the University of Florida, Murphy caught 90 passes for the Raiders for 1,371 yards and six touchdowns.

Two seasons ago, he caught a career-high 41 passes for 609 yards.
