    San Francisco's Isaac Sopoaga, a University of Hawaii alum, got fired up in Sunday's win over Saint Louis.

The former Hawaii and San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Isaac Sopoaga has signed with the Philadelphia Eagles, according to NFL Network.

According to the Albert Breer of NFL Network, Sopoaga’s deal is for three years and $12 million, with $5 million guaranteed.

The Eagles are planning a move from a 4-3 defensive alignment to a 3-4 defense, so Sopoaga fits the scheme as a nose tackle.
