Practice Squad Tracker: Eagles Add DE Bair

All eight practice squad spots are now accounted for, as the Eagles signed defensive end Brandon Bair on Wednesday morning.

The 6-6, 285-pound Bair played college ball at (you guessed it) the University of Oregon, posting 106 tackles (25.5 for a loss) and five sacks over four seasons in Eugene. He spent some time with the Chiefs and Raiders after going undrafted in 2011 but has not appeared in an NFL game.

Dennis Dixon has practice squad eligibility remaining but the Eagles decided to go in a different direction for now since they are carrying three quarterbacks on the roster.

Linebacker Emmanuel Acho, who originally made the 53-man before being released in favor of Najee Goode, cleared waivers. He could be an option down the road if he stays on the market.

Here is how the rest of the practice squad looks:

New offensive scheme, new defensive scheme, new coaching staff and new personnel. Kelly’s moves this weekend will tell us a lot about his roster-building philosophy. Keeping that in mind, here are 10 players whose future with the franchise hangs in the balance as we approach cut-down day.

Michael Bamiro’s Strange Path To the Eagles

A freshman at Pittsburgh-Titusville, Michael Bamiro sat in front of the TV on fall Saturdays nearly five years ago and had a thought.

“In college, sitting there watching Pitt play… everyone around me, they were all Pittsburgh fans,” Bamiro said. “Seeing myself, I’m just as big as these guys playing. I feel like I can do some of the things that they can do. That really pushed me to say I want to go back and play football. This is something that I can do. I know I can do this.”

And so the roundabout journey began. Bamiro had to sit out a year before joining the Stony Brook program, where he played three seasons. The plan was to play a fourth, but the NCAA ruled that his first year at Pittsburgh-Titusville counted against his eligibility. The problem? The final ruling came down a few weeks ago, nearly three months after the draft.
