Fast is one good aspect. But unless the guy got good hands to catch the ball. can run his routes very good, and get good spacing between him and the CB to catch the ball. Then he is just another WR on the roster. Just with speed.

He blew up his first two seasons and that got buried in the depth chart behind the emerging receivers in Oakland.

He had 6 TD's in his first season and 0 last season. Definitely a vertical speedster with GREAT blocking ability.

Reading from some Raiders fans that he had fallen out of favor with the new regime at was never the same mentally and physically after some hit/injury.

He's tall, blazing fast and has inconsistent hands. That's about all you need to know. He was buried on Oakland's depth chart with all the WR's they have....

Bingo!! There is the reason why he got bump down in the depth chart. He can't catch very good. Blazing speed means nothing unless he catch. Just another WR taking up rost space until cut time. Even tho we traded for him. Hope he works out tho. But as of right now it sounds like he is just another guy on the roster. Only way I see him playing on the team this year is playing on STs

hmm the fact that carolina felt compelled to trade for a WR might mean that they are not confident in what they have or that gettis recovery isnt going well.

If someone could take the time to head over to the Raider's board to see what they are saying and post some things here it would be greatly appreciated.

Their forum won't load for me for some reason.

Guy was decent his first couple years..maybe he can go back to that. It would be great to get 2 solid contributors from the raiders(Campbell included) for scraps

Here's a quote from a die hard/sensible Raider fan from another forum I belong to.

Murphy really didn't get a lot of chance to shine, but he's still good (and very fast). Panthers are slowly getting much, much better by adding little pieces like this. I'm sad to see him go, but as Billy said our WR position is slowly getting stacked with the same kind of big potential WR's that haven't quite proven it. It was probably in the teams best interest to get rid of one so we could let the others have a chance to shine. Especially after Juron Criner came into camp and put on a circus last month.

This is also Reggie McKenzie's 2nd trade with the Panthers after trading Bruce Campbell for Goodson. I guess the managements like eachother.
