Hank Baskett isn’t hanging up the cleats for full-time diaper duty quite yet.

The football player and husband of Kendra Wilkinson is en route to Indianapolis, Ind., where he is expected to sign with the Colts, a source tells PEOPLE.

The Philadelphia Eagles, for whom Baskett, 27, had played receiver, cut the dad-to-be from its 53-man roster this week so that there’d be space for controversial quarterback Michael Vick.

And though the ink isn’t dry yet, Wilkinson tells E! that she’s excited about the move.

“This is a great opportunity for Hank to be playing for the Colts. Peyton Manning is one of the best – if not the best – quarterbacks in the league, and I’m excited to see my baby kick some a–!” she says, adding: “So proud of Hank for staying strong and positive.”
