Eagles rookie Michael Bamiro dodged the draft, but he couldn’t dodge The Turk.

According to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Eagles have released the offensive tackle, though he said the team has expressed interest in keeping him on the practice squad.

Bamiro was an object of interest primarily because of his timing. He wasn’t eligible for the supplemental draft, and wasn’t in the regular draft because he was petitioning for another year of eligibility at Stony Brook. Multiple teams were at his pro day workout, and there might be interest in him on the waiver wire.

The Eagles guaranteed part of his salary when he was signed, so that might steer him back their way if he’s unclaimed.
