PANTHERS CHANGE RB MIKE GOODSON FOR OT BRUCE CAMPBELL
Wed, 04 Apr 2012 08:07 PM EDT

The Oakland Raiders acquired running back Mike Goodson from the Carolina Panthers in return for offensive tackle Bruce Campbell, a trade both groups expectation will better their depth. NFL odds

Goodson, who ran for 501 yards and 3 touchdowns in 3 seasons with Carolina, became expendable after the team signed independent agent running back Mike Tolbert earlier this month. NFL spreads

He was 4th on the depth chart behind Jonathan Stewart, DeAngelo Williams and Tolbert, so his exit didn’t come as something of a surprise.

“Being after DeAngelo and Stewart for a year or two has been difficult just needing to play and being a competitor,” Goodson said. “I wasn’t looking to leave but anywhere that gave a chance, I’m definitely up for that.”

The Raiders required depth at running back after losing Michael Bush to Chicago in free agency. Starter Darren McFadden has been injury prone, missing 19 games in his 4 seasons and Taiwan Jones played slightly as rookie and is seen as more of a change-of-pace back.

With only 5 draft picks and none till the end of the 3rd round, new Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie is trying to fill as many holes as he can on the line-up through free agency and trades.

In 3 seasons with the Panthers, Goodson played in 28 games with 3 starts.

He rushed 125 times for 501 yards and 3 touchdowns and added 43 receptions for 329 yards. Goodson, 24, had 3 straight 100-yard rushing games and 3 touchdowns late in the 2010 season under former coach John Fox in 2010.

But he didn’t have any carries last year under new coach Ron Rivera and caught one pass for 4 yards.

Goodson has major speed but clowning has been a problem. He put the ball on the ground 6 times in 2010, losing 3. During last year’s training camp Rivera made Goodson carry a football around with him during one practice after he fumbled in back-to-back preseason games.

The previous 4th-round draft pick in 2009 can as well returns kickoffs.

The 6-foot-6, 315-pound Campbell is the newest player who was one of late owner Al Davis’ favorites to be sent out of the town.

Picked in the 4th round in 2010 because of his thrilling mixing of size and speed, Campbell rarely saw action in 2 years with Oakland. He played only 4 games last season and was sometimes on the inactive listing for game days when injured players who didn’t play were active.

He shifted between guard and tackle but never looked complacent at either area.

“We think Bruce Campbell is a very young, gifted offensive lineman who has all of the physical qualities to play in this league,” Panthers CEO Marty Hurney said. “It gives us some more depth at a situation where we required some.”

The Panthers view him as a tackle.

The Panthers have Jordan Gross at the left tackle spot, but last year newbie Byron Bell was pressed into starting on the right side in the place of Jeff Otah, a previous 1st-round draft pick who has been plagued by knee and back issues the previous 3 years.
