FINALLY!!!!!!!! This is such a bias article to produce my own agenda but hey its still sports news.

I don’t know who spoke some sense into my Panthers, but we are finally filling out our WR spots. Yahoo Sports reports that Louis Murphy has been traded to the Panther but details of the trade have not been disclosed.

With three seasons with the Raiders, Murphy caught 90 balls for 1,371 yards and six touchdowns. He started just one game in 2011, catching 15 passes for 241 yards and zero touchdowns.

Newton is even familiar with murphy since they were both teammates in Florida before Newton transferred. Im sure under the wings of Steve Smith, Murphy can shape up to be what they so desperately need, another weapon to secure their offense.

Carolina looks to build on strong finish last year

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton proved his critics wrong last season, showing that he could be an elite NFL quarterback despite just one year at a major college program. Now the question is can he get his team to the playoffs? It's hard to bet against him. The No. 1 pick in the 2011 draft burst onto the scene in last year's season opener by throwing for 422 yards...

Panthers trade Jeff Otah to the Jets

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).

Raiders ready for 1st camp since Al Davis' death

Panthers to switch to a 3-4?’s Michael Lombardi made some noise today by casually referencing that the Panthers would be switching to a 3-4 defense this season in a season preview. This came as a big surprise to many because Lombardi is pretty well regarded and there had been no mention of the Panthers doing such a thing by any of their beat writers or coaches this offseason. The potential move did...
