Former No. 1 pick Harrington signs deal with Falcons

ESPN.com news services

ESPN's Chris Mortensen is reporting the Atlanta Falcons have agreed to terms with free agent quarterback Joey Harrington on a two-year contract.

Financial terms of the deal were not available.

Harrington will replace Matt Schaub as Michael Vick's backup in Atlanta. Schaub signed a six-year, $48 million deal with the Houston Texans last month.

Last season, Harrington played in 11 games for the Miami Dolphins. He passed for 2,236 yards along with 12 touchdowns and 15 interceptions.

Before joining Miami, Harrington played four seasons with Detroit. The former University of Oregon standout was the third overall pick of the Lions in the 2002 NFL draft.

Chris Mortensen covers the NFL for ESPN.

Now I don't feel so bad. I was concerned that Vick might not stay healthy. Harrington isn't great, but this will be the best team he's been on, talent wise, so he could be serviceable as a back-up.

This puts to rest anyone who wants to say Vick isn't the best passer on his team

I really like this signing because it gives them a guy they can be confident in should Vick get crushed outside of the pocket again.

I don't see how anyone can be confident in Harrington. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad signing as he's certainly an upgrade over D.J Shockley, but if Vick is hurt or doesn't fufill his potential they are toast.

By the way, I can't wait for Scorchin to get on, his two favorite people.

1st - I think Scorchin was banned. I haven't seen him in forever. I would miss his trolling, but eacantdraft has adequately filled that role.

2nd - Harrington is better than any of the other options out there. Though I agree with you, this team only goes as far as Michael Vick can take them.

Scorchin is under the name NFLFanBoy. He was also under a different name before that. He's always easy to spot because he only talks about the same three things and he never uses capital letters.

I think he's going to get cut, honestly. If the new staff liked Shockley, they wouldn't have signed two Quarterbacks. Redman will stick around to help 'install' the offense, Harrington will be the back-up, Vick the starter.

I agree with the move to bring in some guys at QB because Vick is alway 1 play away from going down with a injury. I just don't see why everyone hates shockley so much. The only time he had a chance to play was pre season and he played very good then.

I don't think anyone even cares about Shockley, let alone hates him.

And there you have it.

He gets hype because 1) He's a recognizable name from college 2) He's a hometown boy 3) Because of this, Vick haters like to latch on him as a possible different option.

If by "hate," you mean those who know he's destined to be cut, then I am a "hater" I guess.

I'm not saying shockley should be the starter or anothing like that. I just think if he can develop for another year or 2 he could grow into a atleast a very capable backup. But I don't maybe thats just me being a homer talking

You can say that about pretty much any team losing their starter. I mean, really... Harrington is a top 15 back-up in the NFL.

I'd say he's even better than top 15 in terms of backup QBs.

wooot! Atlanta ftsb!!! I actually think that DJ Shockley is a better QB for the Falcons as a backup than Harrington. His play is more similar to Vick's and there would be less adjustments.

Did you come up with that all on your own? If so, how long did it take for you to brainstorm that one?
