Minnesota Vikings sign free agent WR Hank Baskett to 1-year deal

The Minnesota Vikings have signed free agent receiver Hank Baskett to a one-year deal.

Baskett practiced with the team Wednesday, one day after being released from the Philadelphia Eagles. He comes to a team in desperate need of healthy receivers.

Sidney Rice is out for at least another month after having hip surgery and Percy Harvin has a strained right hip that leaves his status in question for the game Sunday against Detroit. That left the Vikings with only three healthy receivers before Baskett was brought in.
