Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly made an interesting choice to possbily help at the offensive tackle position, signing the huge 6-foot-8, 335-pound Michael Bamiro on Tuesday, reports Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com. Bamiro, the All-American out of tiny Stoney Brook College, couldn't enter the 2013 draft, or the supplemental one for that matter due to some confusion about the rules of his college eligibility, so he had to wait it out. While waiting, a reported 22 teams were showing interest (via Fox Sports' Mike Garafolo), having sent reps to his pro day before the draft. The Miami Dolphins were especially keen on him, and they likely would have signed him if Philly didn't. Per Rosenthal: Bamiro is a long shot to develop into a star, but reportedly he has a lot of raw skills to work with. The team's No. 4 overall draft pick, Lane Johnson, didn't start playing offensive line until 2011, so Kelly isn't afraid to take a chance on a talented player.
