It seemed as though Hank Baskett may be safe when the Eagles announced Shawn Andrews was being placed on injured reserve and Jeff Garcia was being activated. However, Baskett was released today in order to activate another quarterback, Michael Vick.
Vick will still be unable to play in the Week 2 contest with the Saints but now will be able to participate in practice with the team. It looks as if the Eagles want him to get some reps in with the team to prepare himself for his Week 3 debut against the Chiefs.
Baskett will have to clear waivers before he can be signed anywhere. Although he was released from this team, I think he will be able to find a job pretty quickly. He is a tall receiver and also plays well on special teams.
