The Eagles signed OL Michael Bamiro on Tuesday. Bamiro worked out for teams last week, under the supervision of Tra Thomas. Les Bowen spoke to Tra to get his thoughts on the young man.
Former Eagles Pro Bowl left tackle Tra Thomas worked with Bamiro at Thomas’s 7 Deuce Sports gym in Cherry Hill. “I think he’s a solid athlete, someone that kind of fell through the cracks,” Thomas said Tuesday. “He has large hands, he bends well. We worked on both right and left stances; he’s coachable.”
The coachable comment is the key one. Bamiro has size. He’s got some athleticism. He needs work and guys like him will only make it if they have the right attitude. Good to hear that Tra thinks he is coachable.
Jeff Stoutland had some big guys on his line at Alabama. I’m sure he sees good upside in Bamiro.
