Former Stony Brook offensive tackle Michael Bamiro, who signed with the Eagles shortly before training camp, has been released, according to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer. 

Bamiro had hoped to play for Stony Brook this season, but his college eligibility had expired because he had originally enrolled at the University of Pittsburgh in 2008. Even though he didn't play that season, the clock had started on his college eligibility.

The Eagles had high hopes for the 6-foot-8, 335-pound tackle, and there's still a chance he will be signed to the team's practice squad. Before that happens, he must pass through waivers, meaning that another team can claim him and place him on the active roster. If he clears waivers, Bamiro can be signed to the Eagles' practice squad.
