WR Louis Murphy Traded to Panthers!

283 posts in this topic

Put this in the other Murphy thread, but I'll drop it here as well.

Just did some reading on Murphy and apparently his recent injuries have been a sports hernia he had to have surgery on that kept him out of TC and the first 5 games of 2011, a pulled groin that made him miss a couple games later in the season, and then a hamstring that kept him out of OTAs.

Sounds like a series of freak accidents to me. I'd much rather have that than a Jeff Otah type chronic condition.

My impression of Murphy, from what I've seen of him: tall, fast in a straight line, tough and willing blocker, not a smooth and natural catcher of the ball, resembles a track athlete playing football more than a natural football player, frustrated by press coverage at times, somewhat sloppy running routes. Doesn't play special teams, which could hurt his chances of making the roster if it's a close battle with Pilares or AE. Raiders liked to give him the ball on reverses, despite the fact that he doesn't seem to posses natural instincts as a runner. I think he has potential as a slot reciever. Reminds me more of Drew Carter than Gettis. Presents a tough matchup for defenses because of his size/speed combo.

Well we have our 6 WRs now. Smith, LaFell, Gettis, Pilares, Adams, and Murphy.

For anybody who cares... With the Murphy for Otah swap we picked up $200,000 in salary. No big deal really

If Murphy is HALF as good as his highlights suggest, he's good enough for #3.

Well he does appear to signal his own first downs before the official, so he has that Moose trait down.
