Upon his March arrival in South Philadelphia, defensive tackle Isaac Sopoaga insisted the Eagles would “shock the world.”

If they do abruptly reverse course and make the postseason under first-year coach Chip Kelly, Sopoaga won’t be here to help fulfill his promise.

The Eagles on Tuesday traded the 32-year-old nose tackle and a 2014 sixth-round pick to the Patriots in exchange for a 2014 fifth-round pick.

For playing eight games in an Eagles uniform, Sopoaga earned approximately $3.3 million.

Isaac Sopoaga spent his first eight NFL seasons with the 49ers, recording 152 tackles, 7.5 sacks, nine passed defended, one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries.
