Eagles to Host RB Justin Fargas, WR Hank Baskett Tomorrow

Anti RavisContributor IMarch 11, 2010

Tomorrow, the Philadelphia Eagles will host free agent running back Justin Fargas and former Eagles receiver Hank Baskett in an effort to fill out their depth chart at these positions.

Baskett was released from the Eagles roster in the beginning of 2009 to make room for Michael Vick. He was quickly acquired by Indianapolis just two days later when Colts receiver Anthony Gonzalez went down with a season ending knee injury. Baskett failed to make much of an impact in the Colts passing game and hauled in only five passes for 34 yards in the course of 2009. During his time in Philadelphia, he garnered praise as an excellent special teams player but his most notable play of the past year probably came in Super Bowl XLIV when the New Orleans Saints shocked Indianapolis by initiating an onside kick to open the third quarter. Baskett bobbled the ball and Saints linebacker Jonathan Casillas recovered it to retain Saints possession and subsequently score on the following drive. Baskett is perhaps most famous for being the only human being on the planet Earth who is capable of tolerating Playboy Playmate Kendra Wilkinson for more than a half hour at a time.

Justin Fargas is the son of actor Antonio Fargas who played Huggy Bear on Starsky and Hutch. If you didn’t know that, you’ve probably never heard an NFL Broadcast by Joe Buck and for that, I admire you. The younger Fargas was last seen by Philadelphia Eagles fans making Jeremiah Trotter look like a goddamned statue in the middle of the Oakland Coliseum. That’s all I got.
