Louis Murphy To Oakland

New, 5 comments

The most insane franchise in the NFL has added WR Lou Murphy. Going ahead of the more regarded Cornelius Ingram, Murphy was selected by the Oakland Raiders with the 124th pick. Murphy is a big enough guy (6-2, 203) that he will be useful for QB JaMarcus Russell. The Raiders have always been in a state chaos, but new coach Tom Cable showed at the end of last season that he can get the team playing quality football. Oakland was 3-3 in their last 6 games, including finishing with a two game winning streak. Remember, it was a loss to the Raiders on the last day of the season that knocked the Bucs out of the playoffs and sent Jon Gruden to the unemployment line.
