Eagles trade former Warrior to Patriots

Philadelphia (HawaiiNewsNow) - Former Warrior DT Isaac Sopoaga was traded from the Philadelphia Eagles to the New England Patriots just minutes before the end of the trade deadline Tuesday.

The Eagles will also send a 2014 6th round pick to New England in exchange for a 5th round pick.

Sopoaga, a 4th round pick by the San Francisco 49ers in 2004, was just a half-season into his 3-year $12-million dollar deal that he signed with the Eagles back in March.

He's expected to be available for the Patriots next game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, Nov. 3.
