The Philadelphia Eagles have traded nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga and a 2014 sixth-round draft pick to the Patriots for a a fifth-round pick in the 2014 draft.

Sopoaga has already received more than $3 million from the Eagles, who signed him as a free agent this offseason. New England will pay him the $500,000 he is owed over the remainder of the season and is responsible for the final two non-guaranteed years on his contract.
