Michael Bamiro set to sign with Eagles

Michael Bamiro has successfully dodged the draft, and landed with the Eagles.

The Eagles have announced that the team has signed the Stony Brook tackle, who through a complicated set of circumstances, never had to go through the regular or supplemental draft. The Dolphins apparently made a run at him as well, but the Eagles were able to convince him by guaranteeing a portion of his base salaries his first two seasons.

A total of 22 teams were on hand for his workout last week, and some scouts thought he’d have been a mid-round pick if he had been in the draft.

He’ll walk into camp a bit behind, having missed all the spring workouts. But signing with a team with a new coach keeps him from being in too deep of a hole, since everyone’s learning a new system.
