ATLANTA (AP) -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. Terms were not released. He had signed a two-year, $6 million deal last year.
The 29-year-old 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 is the third quarterback, leaving the Falcons' options at quarterback the same as when they began the post-Michael Vick era last season.
