Beck, Shotwell playing waiting game

Former Cal Poly linebackers Jordan Beck and Kyle Shotwell are still waiting for “the call” after being cut by their respective NFL teams this week (see below posts).
As reported earlier this week, Beck worked out with the Cincinnati Bengals on Tuesday. Beck would be a good fit in Cincy because the Bengals list only two LBs at the middle and weakside spots and could use help on special teams.
Beck also had workouts scheduled with Baltimore, Minnesota and Tampa Bay, according to the Santa Cruz Sentinel.
Shotwell is back home in Goleta and has not worked out for any other clubs. He is hoping to rejoin the Raiders this season and said he likely won’t go the CFL or arena route to continue his football career.
In the meantime, Shotwell will help us out with his three keys to victory each week for the Cal Poly football team. See Saturday’s Gameday page (S3) for his take on that day’s opponent.

I would very much enjoy reading Shotwell's comments regarding the game versus Idaho. For those of us that do not live locally is there any possibility that you could post his comments on the Tribune's internet website. So far they are not posted.

I'm a few thousand miles from any Tribunes myself here in Moscow. I forget exactly what Kyle said, but his three keys were something like:
1. Stop the run: We gave up too many yards (351) last week.
2. Continue to feed the ball to Ramses Barden: He's an obvious weapon no one can stop.
3. Dominate the line of scrimmage: We have to put pressure on Idaho's QB.
