Vikings | McMullen acquired in trade
Thu, 18 May 2006 12:13:23 -0700

The Minnesota Vikings have acquired WR Billy McMullen from the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for rookie WR Hank Baskett.

If the Eagles wanted Hank Baskett, why didn't they draft him in the seventh round or sign him while he was available? They're getting pretty desperate now :challenge

Philly didn't have a 7th rounder and Baskett chose Minnesota over them...

It's not like the Eagles are giving up a special receiver, though, since McMullen only has 22 receptions and 1 TD for his career...

Philly was the only team to have Baskett work out before the draft. He might have signed with Minn. before the Eagles called him about signing with them. Remember, Childress was with the Eagles last year. Might be a favor. McMullen was most likely a cut anyway. Baskett could wind up on the practice squad, McMullen could not.

There must be a common scout here in the western part of Texas and southern New Mexico that has ties with the Eagles because it seems the Eagles always get a player from this region every year. Baskett is a specimen and can catch the ball, but looks lazy and can get rattled by smaller players.
