National Football League(NEW YORK) — The Oakland Raiders traded receiver Louis Murphy to the Carolina Panthers for a draft pick.

A source of ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter reports the pick is a seventh-rounder.

“Thanking god for this opportunity! Super excited to be a part of the @Panthers Organization!! Can’t Wait!!,” Murphy tweeted.

The 25-year-old receiver battled a groin injury last season and only played in 11 games for the Raiders. During that time he had 15 catches for 241 yards.

The previous two seasons Murphy was much better catching 75 passes, for 1,130 yards and six touchdowns in 30 games.
