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

Harrington signed a new two-year deal today.

The 29-year-old Harrington 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 the position 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.

Terms of Harrington's new contract were not released. He signed a two-year, six million dollar deal last year.
