The Carolina Panthers pulled off a pair of trades on Monday as the team prepares to open training camp later this week. The Panthers traded OT Jeff Otah to the New York Jets for what is being reported as a seventh-round draft pick in next year’s NFL Draft. The Panthers also acquired WR Louis Murphy from the Oakland Raiders for a conditional pick. These moves could actually be considered a virtual trade of Jeff Otah for Louis Murphy in essence.
Otah was a former first-round selection for the Panthers and appeared to be poised for a very promising career with Carolina. The offensive tackle has been plagued with injuries throughout his career however and has played in just four games in the last two seasons. Otah should be able to replace Wayne Hunter at right tackle for the Jets heading into the 2012 season. If he can remain healthy, and at this point that has to be considered a big if, he could be a significant upgrade to the Jets offensive line.

Trade for Panthers: The Panthers were busy today, trading a conditional late round pick for Louis Murphy and then trading Jeff Otah for a conditional late round pick to the Jets (no word yet if those two are the same conditional late round picks).

Wide receiver Louis Murphy has been traded from Oakland to Carolina. Further details were not disclosed, but it is believed the Raiders will receive a late-round draft pick in the swap.

According to Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports, the Oakland Raiders have traded wide receiver Louis Murphy to the Carolina Panthers.

The New York Jets have acquired offensive tackle Jeff Otah from the Carolina Panthers for an undisclosed draft pick. Jeff Otah was the 19th overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft and has played well in action, although his health is a real concern for the New York Jets. If healthy, Jeff Otah can become a major upgrade over current right tackle Wayne Hunter, but that’s a big if according...
Right tackle Jeff Otah was acquired by the Jets, who sent an undisclosed conditional draft pick to Carolina. Otah was a first-round pick by the Panthers in 2008, and was viewed as one of the best young right tackles in the game. He helped pave the way for running backs DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart to become the first teammates in NFL history to each run for more than...
The Panthers finally gave up on former first round pick Jeff Otah on Monday, agreeing to a deal that would send the oft-injured offensive lineman to the New York Jets for a conditional seventh-round pick.
The New York Jets might want Jeff Otah to replace Wayne Hunter on their offensive line. But for now, Otah is taking up real estate on the Jets' physically unable to perform list. The Jets, who traded for the oft-injured lineman Monday, placed Otah on the PUP list after he failed a team physical Wednesday. Otah can't practice with the Jets until he passes a physical. The Jets...
Jets fans rejoiced when word surfaced that right tackle Jeff Otah was joining Gang Green and possibly replacing Wayne Hunter. Hobbled by chronic knee problems, Otah failed his first physical with team doctors, putting the trade in serious doubt.
