The Eagles on Monday released rookie running back Miguel Maysonet and signed tight end Will Shaw, who earlier this month attended the rookie camp on a tryout basis.

In two seasons as a tight end for Youngstown State, Shaw finished with 43 receptions for 629 yards and eight touchdowns. He transferred there as a safety after playing his freshman season at Mesa (Ariz.) Community College. He played safety as a sophomore and moved to linebacker in the spring of his junior year before becoming a tight end in the fall.

Before his initial tryout with the Eagles, Shaw worked out with the Steelers on a tryout basis.

Maysonet, the former Stony Brook (N.Y.) standout, signed with the Eagles after last month’s draft as a priority free agent. He participated in the rookie camp from May 10-12 but wasn’t permitted to the Organized Team Activity that started May 13 because of an NCAA graduation rule.

The timing of the release is odd, given that Maysonet reportedly received a $10,000 signing bonus. The team bolstered its running back depth last week by signing former Cowboys running back Felix Jones, adding the former first-round pick to a stable of backs that includes LeSean McCoy, Bryce Brown, Chris Polk and rookie free agent Matthew Tucker.

The Eagles start another OTA on Monday.
