Kendra Wilkinson’s NFL star husband just joined the mass of unemployed Americans. On Tuesday, The Philadelphia Eagles released wide receiver Hank Baskett to accommodate quarterback Michael Vick, who was removed from the exempt list and added him to the 53-man roster, Philly.com reports.
The embattled former Falcons quarterback has not played during an NFL regular-season since December 31, 2006, when he began serving 19 months in a federal prison after pleading guilty to federal charges stemming from a dogfighting operation conducted at a house he owned in Surry County, Virginia.
Baskett originally joined the Eagles as a rookie free agent in 2006. Over his four year career, the 27-year-old recorded 72 receptions for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns.
“I’m not speaking about it yet,” said Baskett when reached by phone this afternoon.
Hank and Kendra are expecting their first child together — a son who they’ll call Hank IV — in December.
