Eagles trade Greg Lewis to Patriots

And the roster makeover continues: the Eagles have traded wide receiver Greg Lewis to the Patriots for a 5th round pick. The Pats recently lost Jabar Gaffney and could be looking to use Lewis as a 3rd wideout behind Randy Moss and Wes Welker, although that's a tall order for a mediocre wideout like Lewis.

Lewis spent 6 years with the Eagles and rarely put up big numbers but he had a knack for making the big catches. He only caught 19 passes last season and was more valuable to the Eagles on special teams in recent years.

The moving of Lewis could be a presursor to the Eagles bringing in another wide receiver. Of course, it could also just be done to shed a player with little use to them.

I can't believe we got a 5th for him... I would think a 6th at most.
