Saints Re-Sign QB Harrington

By  | 

The New Orleans Saints have re-signed backup quarterback Joey Harrington.

Harrington, who is entering his eighth season, first signed with
the Saints early in the 2008 season. A first-round draft choice in
2002 by the Detroit Lions, the 30-year-old quarterback served as
the Saints' third-string quarterback in 12 games but did not play
in a game.

In seven seasons, Harrington has started 76 of the 81 games he has played in, completing 1,459 of 2,538 passes for 14,693 yards with 79 touchdowns and 85 interceptions.

Harrington became a free agent after last season and re-signed with the Saints on Monday, at the outset of the club's offseason conditioning program.
