The San Francisco 49ers lost another member of their Super Bowl team, as nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga signed with the Philadelphia Eagles. According to the NFL Network's Albert Breer, Sopoaga's deal is for three years and $12 million, with $5 million guaranteed.

The Eagles are planning a move to a 3-4 defense, so a nose tackle like Sopoaga is needed. He has also lined up as a fullback on occasion on offense for the 49ers, so he could provide fun options for the Eagles as they try to rebound from a dismal 4-12 record.

Sopoaga isn't the only loss on defense for San Francisco. Dashon Goldson is also expected to sign elsewhere.
