The Patriots have officially announced the acquisition of receiver Greg Lewis from the Philadelphia Eagles.
The team announced that it has sent an undisclosed 2009 draft choice to Philadelphia. In return, the Patriots announced that they have acquired Lewis and an undisclosed 2010 draft pick from the Eagles.
A league source said today that the 2009 draft choice that the Patriots traded is a fifth-rounder, although that has not been confirmed by either team.
The Eagles' official website notes that Lewis had two of his best games against the Patriots. The Eagles' official website also offers analysis on what the deal means for Philadelphia (Patriots-based analysis to come).
