The guy is former Cal Poly & Oakland Raider linebacker Kyle Shotwell.
He was a former teammate of Cal Poly DE and current Eagles LB Chris Gocong.
"He was just completely ecstatic for me. We've talked during the season and we've had a couple of conversations where he told me, 'Kyle you know you just have to stay positive, something good is going to happen.' And who would have thought that something good would happen and I would be reunited with him, because not only was he one of my former teammates but he was one of my best buddies too," said Shotwell.
The 6-1 240lb Shotwell is now on the Eagles' practice squad.
