The Philadelphia Eagles have released undrafted free agent running back Miguel Maysonet. Maysonet, a Stony Brook product, was a rookie minicamp invite last week prior to his release. He did receive a $10,000 signing bonus which was the largest among any of the undrafted rushers, according to ESPN’s Rich Cimini. Cimini also suggests that the release of Maysonet shows there is a philosophical difference between first year head coach Chip Kelly and the Eagles front office. Because he was still enrolled in school, his participation was restricted to non-OTA activities, per league rules. ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. was very high on Maysonet’s potential: “A sleeper from Stony Brook, Maysonet has been on my radar since his sophomore season, and I have him ranked higher than more notable names such as Kenjon Barner and Stepfan Taylor. He can really produce after contact and runs with a great lean.” The Eagles also just signed Felix Jones to provide depth behind LeSean McCoy and Bryce Brown. With multiple backs in front of him on the depth chart, Maysonet’s chances of making the active roster were very slim.
