The Eagle bombshell has landed.

Kendra Wilkinson's football-playin' hubby, Hank Baskett, has been released from the Philadelphia Eagles in advance of the team's second game (which, in a nice bit of past and present E! flame synergy, is against Reggie Bush's New Orleans Saints).

On the plus side, he won't have to worry about taking paternity leave.

Baskett, a wide receiver, was cut loose to make room for another headline-grabbing player (for all the wrong reasons): Michael Vick.

News of Baskett's ousting comes after the expectant newlyweds decided to swap time zones, with Kendra and her reality-show hubby ditching Los Angeles for a home in the City of Brotherly Love's suburbs.

Needless to say, when it comes to the Baskett brood, it's no longer sunny in Philadelphia.
