Falcons May Re-Sign Harrington

                                Joey Harrington 

The Atlanta Falcons may revisit the possibility, according to Steve Wyche of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and verified by a “source” familiar with the situation, of re-signing recently released quarterback Joey Harrington to a restructured contract – as early as next week.  The team and Harrington’s representative have had discussions about him rejoining the quarterback-challenged Falcons.

Harrington, who was signed last spring to a 2-year, $6 milion contract, was scheduled to make $2.5 million in 2008 and is due a $1 million deferred signing bonus on March 15; by releasing Harrington when they did, the Falcons were released of any responsibility for his base salary.  Assuming that the Falcons re-sign Harrington, the team will realize some savings on their salary cap short-term and retain his services; as of this writing, the only QB’s in Falcons camp are D.J. Shockley and Chris Redman and are expected to draft a QB in the April 26-27 NFL draft.
