The Eagles have agreed to terms with Stony Brook tackle Michael Bamiro, who was recently declared a free agent by the NFL after the NCAA denied him an extra year of eligibility.
The 6-foot-8, 335-pound Bamiro is expected to sign a contract Wednesday and will report to training camp along with the rest of the Eagles rookies on Monday.
Bamiro should have been eligible for the draft in April but avoided the process because of an apparent oversight. He wasn't eligible for the supplemental draft earlier this month because he was not an underclassman.
The 22-year-old Bamiro attended the University of Pittsburgh-Titusville in 2008 but did not participate in intercollegiate athletics. He transferred to Stony Brook in 2009, following one brother who played football and another who played basketball. He sat out his first year as a redshirt and started at right tackle for the Seawolves for the next three years.
