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.
