The New England Patriots swapped Ellis Hobbs for a couple of fifth-round draft picks Sunday. Hobbs will join former teammate Asante Samuel in the Eagles' secondary.
A four-year veteran, Hobbs started all 16 games in each of the past two seasons. In 2008, he had 47 tackles, three interceptions, and 11 passes defensed. The former Iowa State standout has played in 63 games, with 49 starts, and has 198 tackles, 2.5 sacks, nine interceptions and 36 passes defensed.
