After taking some time off from doing... anything, the Eagles have made a roster move. Fox Sports' Mike Garafolo reports the Eagles have signed Stony Brook offensive lineman Michael Bamiro.
Bamiro, 22, was not in the NFL Draft in April because he thought he was going to play this fall but the NCAA ruled him ineligible. He was not eligible for the NFL Supplemental Draft because he was not an underclassman so he became a free agent.
The 6'8", 335 lbs. offensive tackle had interest from a lot of places as 22 teams were at his workout last week in Medford, NJ. He likely would have been a fifth or sixth round pick (or a third round pick of the Andy Reid-led Chiefs). Bamiro also reportedly works out with former Eagles OT Tra Thomas in the off-season.
He is another offensive lineman who can hopefully keep up with Chip Kelly's face paced offense.
