Hank Baskett has been picked up by the Indianapolis Colts. The footballer was signed today and has already joined the team for practice.
Shortly after his wedding to Playboy Playmate and Hef’s former girlfriend, Kendra Wilkinson, Hank Baskett was cut by the Eagles, who were making room for Michael Vick.
It seems things worked out nicely for the wide receiver, as Anthony Gonzalez suffered an injury on Sunday while playing Jacksonville and will be out for eight weeks.
Hank was quickly picked up and has already begun practicing. He will play his first game as a Colt on Monday against, Miami.
Hank’s wife Kendra told People,
“This is a great opportunity for Hank to be playing for the Colts. Peyton Manning is one of the best – if not the best – quarterbacks in the league, and I’m excited to see my baby kick some a–!” she says, adding: “So proud of Hank for staying strong and positive.”
Colts Quarterback Peyton Manning told the Indianapolis Star that they hope to get Baskett caught up and familiar with their routines as soon as possible. He also added that Hank played on a strong offense for the Eagles, so he will definitely be an asset to the Colts.
Readers, tell me your thoughts on the Colts’ choice!
