Making him a potential stay-at-home dad, Hank Baskett gets cut from The Eagles to make room for Michael Vick
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.
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.
