Panthers deal RB Goodson for Raiders' OT Campbell
CHARLOTTE — The Panthers announced they've traded running back Mike Goodson to the Oakland Raiders in exchange for offensive tackle Bruce Campbell.
Goodson, who ran for 501 yards and three touchdowns in three seasons with Carolina, became expendable after the team signed free agent running back Mike Tolbert earlier this offseason.
The 6-foot-6, 315-pound Campbell played in four games for the Raiders in 2011. As a rookie in 2010, he played in 10 games, primarily on special teams, after being selected by Oakland in the fourth round.
Panthers GM Marty Hurney says Campbell "is a very young, talented offensive lineman who has all the physical qualities to play in this league."
Campbell played guard his first two seasons with the Raiders but the Panthers will look at moving him to tackle.
