PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The Philadelphia Eagles have acquired linebacker Will Witherspoon from the St. Louis Rams for rookie wide receiver Brandon Gibson and a fifth-round pick in 2010.

The Eagles made the trade Tuesday to get Witherspoon, an eight-year veteran who spent his first four seasons with Carolina. He was the Rams' starter at the weakside spot and had 36 tackles and one forced fumble this season.

Witherspoon has recorded more than 100 tackles three times in his career and has missed only two games to injury.

Gibson, a sixth-round pick, was inactive for all six games with Philadelphia.
