Description: According to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports.com the Philadelphia Eagles have acquired Witherspoon from the St. Louis Rams in exchange for WR Brandon Gibson and a 2010 fifth-round draft pick.
Insight: Witherspoon will give the Eagles' linebacking corp some needed new blood. He had been playing on the weakside in St. Louis, but may take over at MLB for Philadelphia. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Witherspoon will be moved outside this season.
Insight: The move should allow Witherspoon to make more plays on the ball. In his final two seasons as the weakside 'backer for Carolina, he picked off six passes and broke up 20 others. In three years in the middle for the Rams, he's had 18 total breakups and just one interception. He did record seven sacks from the middle in 2007, but his other two seasons in St. Louis have been more in line with his career numbers there. The key will be whether Witherspoon can keep his tackle numbers up, but he should remain a valuable IDP. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: Witherspoon enjoyed his first good fantasy outing of the season Sunday with seven solo tackles and a sack.
Insight: The middle linebacker came into the season a bit dinged up and produced like it. Let's see if this can be the beginning of a turnaround. (Matt Schauf/SportsBuff.com)
