Never heard of him TBH. More camp depth is fine with me.

Dat frame tho. Shocked



Funny thing is that was the one player ESPN Analyst specifically pointed out as the only player who had a realistic chance at being taken in the supplemental draft.

Irrelevant draft

He probably knew teams were talking about signing him, the Dolphins reportedly tried to.

Seems like a good practice squad candidate.

King Dunlap was big, we all know how that worked out.


Keep thinking the same thing. Also read that he blocked for a 3x 1000+ yd. rusher while he was at Stony Brook, so hopefully that means there is some kinda talent there.

What a very thin head to go with that monster body.

By the way Bamiro got a 3-year deal.

Surprised some of you draftniks hadn't heard about him.

Huge kid obviously. Messed up his eligibility so thru some loophole has become a FA. Heard 15 teams went out to see him workout. Eagles apparently weren't even there. However, he had been working out with Tre Thomas, who works for us now supposedly. So, maybe we have a little more insight than most here. Can't be too much worse than a reserve/spot starter with potential to bookend with LJ in the future. Nothing to give up, perfect signing.

Some bad news [or good if you want to sign him and create the biggest pair of Tackles in the league], the Rams released OT Terrell Brown, who's 6-10, 400 pounds.

400 is too big. I wouldn't want him falling on our own players.

I meant to ask, what exactly did he do or not do in order to forfeit his last year of college eligibility?

There's a story here about him:

Quote:
It's a quirky development that, sources say, began to formulate in the spring when Bamiro learned from his coaches that a waiver to give him another year of eligibility was going to be denied by the NCAA because Bamiro attended the University of Pittsburgh in 2008. Even though he didn't play football at Pitt, the clock on his eligibility started ticking.

The 6-foot-8, 335-pound Bamiro then decided he wanted to play football, so he transferred to Stony Brook, where one of his brothers (David) was once a linebacker, while another (Solomon) played basketball. (Solomon, known as "Bam Bam," is now a member of the Harlem Globetrotters.)

Michael Bamiro sat out the 2009 season with a redshirt designation after transferring. In 2010, he stepped in as the Seawolves' starting right tackle, a position he held for three seasons. Bamiro, a first-team All-Big South selection last season, was expecting to stay there in 2013, only to learn his college career was over and that he wouldn't be subject to the supplemental draft.

Teams can now get a player with the skills to be drafted without having to give up a pick to do so. Bamiro will hold a workout for teams this Thursday in Medford, N.J., a source told FOX Sports.

Well if last year showed us anything, it was that our backups on the O-line didn't deserve to be on an NFL roster, especially our backup tackles.

I'm glad to see us bringing in fresh talent, and quality blockers emerge out of nowhere more often than any other position. Sheeeeeeeete, Jason Peters was a backup TE!

Dennis Kelly did a good job for someone no one ever heard about pre draft. He is a capable back up.
