Falcons re-sign Harrington

POSTED: March 23, 2008 5:01 a.m.

ATLANTA — The Atlanta Falcons re-signed quarterback Joey Harrington only one week after cutting the six-year veteran.

Harrington signed a new two-year deal on Wednesday.

Harrington, 29, started 10 games last season but returns as the possible backup to Chris Redman, who ended the season as the starter and also recently signed a two-year contract.

D.J. Shockley, the former University of Georgia starter, is the team's third quarterback, leaving the team's options at quarterback the same as when they began the post-Michael Vick era last season.

Vick is serving a 23-month prison sentence after pleading guilty to federal charges in a dogfighting operation.

Harrington, 29, signed a two-year, $6 million deal last year. Terms of the new contract were not released.
