NFL Notebook: Patriots get nose tackle but lose right tackle
The team acts to replace the injured Vince Wilfork.

PHILADELPHIA – The New England Patriots acquired nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga from the Philadelphia Eagles along with a sixth-round pick in 2014 for a fifth-rounder next year.

Sopoaga, who spent his first nine seasons with San Francisco, had signed an $11 million, three-year deal as a free agent. He played eight games and had 18 tackles.

Sopoaga, 32, helps replace nose tackle Vince Wilfork, who is out for the season.
