Isaac Sopoaga: experienced nose tackle traded from Philadelphia to New England
The NFL's trade deadline passed quietly on Tuesday with New England Patriots' move for defensive tackle Isaac Sopoaga the only deal to go through.
The Patriots sent a fifth-round pick in the 2014 draft to Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for Sopoaga and a 2014 sixth-rounder.
Sopoago is in his 10th season in the NFL - the first nine were spent with San Francisco 49ers - and had been used mainly as a situational run stopper by the Eagles.
The Patriots were looking for help on their defence after tackle Vince Wilfork was ruled out for the season with a torn Achilles.
