Eagles sign LB to practice squad

The Philadelphia Eagles signed linebacker Kyle Shotwell to the practice squad Wednesday. Shotwell replaces LB William Kershaw, who was signed off the practice squad by the Houston Texans.

The 6-1, 240-pound Shotwell was signed as a rookie free agent by the Oakland Raiders after the 2007 draft. Shotwell was a college teammate of Eagles LB Chris Gocong at Cal Poly SLO, where he finished his career ranked second in school history with 392 tackles and eighth with 17 sacks. The Santa Barbara, CA, native was selected as the Buck Buchanan Award winner, given to the top defensive player in Division I-AA, as a senior in 2006.
