Jeff Haseley reports that Carolian Panthers have traded RB Mike Goodson to the Oakland Raiders. Goodson has since confirmed the deal on his twitter account. The Raiders will send OT Bruce Campbell to the Panthers in return for him.
For the last few weeks, there have been reports that Panthers could be looking to trade Jonathan Stewart but that apparently wasn’t case. The addition of Mike Tolbert left Carolina with a pretty crowded backfield so they had to get rid of someone.
Goodson is a decent a third-down back that can be effective in the passing the game but blocking is obviously not his strong suit. He’ll join Darren McFadden and Taiwan Jones in the Raiders backfield next season.
