Baskett to Colts?


Recommended Posts

Good pick up for them, I suppose. Given Peyton is the QB, it wouldn't be a terrible pick up for your fantasy team either.

The Indianapolis Colts will sign former Philadelphia Eagles receiver Hank Baskett on Wednesday, a league source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The Colts have been in the market for a receiver since losing Anthony Gonzalez to a knee injury.

After releasing Marvin Harrison in a cost-cutting move in February, the Colts expected two former first-round picks, receivers Reggie Wayne and Anthony Gonzalez to step up.

But Gonzalez sprained ligaments in his right knee Sunday and is expected to miss several weeks. The Indianapolis Star, citing a source, reported Thursday that Gonzalez won't require surgery and hopes to return after the Colts' Oct. 18th bye -- meaning he will miss four games.

Baskett was one of seven receivers the Eagles carried on their 53-man roster through Week 1. He became expendable after Philadelphia selected Jeremy Maclin in the first round of April's draft and added Brandon Gibson in the sixth round.

Baskett had 72 catches for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns in 48 games with the Eagles.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

It would probably like Brad Smith and since Smith already knows the offense it wouldn't have been worth it.

If we can ever find someone to spread the field and get open that'd be a great addition.

Agreed. I just can't stand Brad Smith as a WR and thought this might have been a chance for us to ditch him. :biggrin:
