First big move is in.
The #Eagles released tackle Michael Bamiro. He just told me that they hope to keep him on the practice squad.

A follow up note from Sam.
If he makes it to the practice squad, the #Eagles can outbid other teams for Bamiro — they are already on the hook for $140k in salary.

Bamiro is just too raw for the NFL right now. He has potential, but needs work. He would be ideal for the practice squad. Has elite size. Showed a bit of a nasty streak. Big issues is pass protection. He’s effective now simply due to size. Must learn to move his feet and mirror the rusher consistently. Played in a run-heavy offense in college so he had no pass protection skills when he joined the Eagles.
