The Eagles bring back WR Hank Baskett

As expected, Hank Baskett has returned to the Eagles, signing a one year deal. Baskett, who had spent 3 full seasons with the Eagles before getting cut and catching on with the Colts last year, returns to the team he made his NFL debut with.

As for why Baskett was signed, it's purely a move for some reliable depth. The Eagles currently have 4 veteran receivers on the roster (DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Jason Avant, Kevin Curtis) so Baskett is 5th on the depth chart. Even if the Eagles draft another receiver, I would expect Baskett to have an inside track at keeping that 5th spot, or even move up to 4th if Curtis is cut, due to his familiarity with the Eagles system. I would also expect that Baskett would be a solid contributor on special teams despite his blunder in the Super Bowl.

Of course, most of you only care that bringing back Baskett means the return of his wife Kendra to Philadelphia.
