    Rams showing interest in former Eagles WR Baskett

    Wilson: Where will Hank Baskett land?
    by Aaron Wilson
    March 06, 02010

    Indianapolis Colts veteran wide receiver and special-teams contributor Hank Baskett is perusing the NFL marketplace again as an unrestricted free agent.

    According to a league source, at least three teams have interest in Baskett, including the Chicago Bears, St. Louis Rams and the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Nothing is imminent as far as a deal with free agency in its second day.

    The 6-foot-4, 220-pounder caught 33 passes for 440 yards and three touchdowns in 2008 with the Eagles.

    After signing with the Colts when the Eagles moved Michael Vick up to the active roster, Baskett didn't see significant playing time as Pierre Garcon and Austin Collie shined opposite Reggie Wayne.

    Baskett is a special-teams stalwart, but didn't field an on-sides kick to open the second half of the Colts' Super Bowl loss to the New Orleans Saints.

    Baskett is a co-star in a reality television show with his wife, Kendra Wilkinson, formerly of The Girls Next Door.

    Maybe we should change our name to the St. Louis Eagle Cast-offs

    Heres what we do. We Bring him in along with TO, Brandon Marshall, and Michael Vick. Not only do we have 3 good top receivers we are a lock to get Hard Knocks this year

    In all seriousness he offers size we don't have good special teamer, but he still doesn't fit our need for a number 1 wideout. Plus Kendra would be a huge distraction at camp and the games.

    This had better be a joke.

    Wouldn't be a bad pick up. Obviously depth player.

    Devaney, if you care about this team... fire the offensive coordinator!!!!

    Re: Rams showing interest in former Eagles WR Baskett

    i was fine with Feely ..but not this one..hope he goes elsewhere.
    not because i dont think he can play a bit..but id rather see us develop our current young and promising 2`s,3`s,4`s etc..than see somebody of Basketts limited upside take away some of their reps..we have plenty of pancakes in Gibson,Avery,Robinson,Amendola,Foster & Burton..we need some maple syrup to lay on the top of them,not a basket to hide them in.

    there are 3 wideouts that im keen on us drafting..(atleast 1 of them,perhaps two max..) in Brandon La Fell, Dezmon Briscoe & Blair White..id much rather have one of them onboard than Baskett.

    He isn't the the veteran presence we need, we don't need another completely average wide receiver. If we aren't planning on bringing in a serious WR1 type veteran, then we're much better off getting our younger guys playing time.

    Lol yeah because Hank Baskett is the only guy in the NFL with a hot wife....

    Hank is a real, real nice guy. He used to live two houses down from one of my friends while he was playing here for the Lobos, and he'd sometimes throw the ball around with us and even visited our practices a couple times.

    Camp body?

    No, more like great special teams player and not a bad WR.
    Would be a good pick-up.

And played against them in college DAM THEM LOBOS!

    Memo to DeSpags. There are 29 other teams in the NFL to draw players from. Taking the Giants and Eagles sloppy seconds alone is not going to build a good franchise.
