Kendra Wilkinson's Husband Gets the Axe

Posted on

The good news for NFL star Hank Baskett is that now he can spend a lot more time with his pregnant wife Kendra Wilkinson.

The bad news? He’s out of a job.

The Philadelphia Eagles announced on Tuesday they had cut Baskett, 27, from their 53-man roster, a move that makes room for controversial quarterback Michael Vick.

Reached by the Philadelphia Inquirer after the news broke, Baskett responded: “I’m not speaking about it.”

Baskett was released despite having had his best season ever in 2008, with 33 catches and three touchdowns.

Vick, however, is considered a stronger offensive player. The star quarterback, 29, last played for the Atlanta Falcons in 2007, but was let go after he was sentenced to 18 months in a federal penitentiary for organizing a dogfighting ring. He is set to begin practicing with the team today.

Baskett and Wilkinson are expecting a boy on Christmas Day.
