Sopoaga made a comment when he signed with the Eagles back in March that the team would "shock the world" this season, following the trend over the past few years of saying how the Eagles would perform. Michael Vick once said the Eagles can become a dynasty. Vince Young once called the Eagles the "Dream Team." Both times the Eagles have not had the greatest of seasons. Sopoaga suffered the same fate as Vince Young because now both are ex-Eagles.
New England is sending Philadelphia a 2014 fifth round pick in exchange for Sopoaga and a 2014 sixth round pick. From the looks of how the Eagles season is going, he will be going to a team that will be in contention for a postseason run.
Sopoaga has definitely helped the Eagles defensive line improve since training camp and the preseason after they decided to make the switch from a 4-3 offense to a 3-4 defense. His leadership had a significant effect on the younger guys, especially rookie Bennie Logan. Logan, Clifton Geathers and Damion Square will have increased playing time due to Sopoaga's departure.
