Michael Vick Signed, Eagles' Hank Baskett ReleasedSeptember 15, 2009
Eagles' wide receiver Hank Baskett has been removed from the Philadelphia Eagles roster to make room for Michael Vick, the AP is reporting.
Vick is eligible to play in an NFL game starting September 27th, when the Eagles play the Kansas City Chiefs. Baskett will probably be traded; the Eagles have so far been unsuccessful in finding an interested party.
Vick's signing was probably expedited by Donovan McNabb's cracked rib injury, which the Eagles' QB suffered in a week one victory over the Carolina Panthers. Second-string QB Kevin Kolb may have to step in for McNabb if his injury keeps him sidelined.
