Falcons Sign Harrington

Joey Harrington signed a two-year deal with the Atlanta Falcons on Monday, becoming a leading contender to back up starting quarterback Michael Vick.

Harrington and Falcons quarterbacks coach Bill Musgrave each are former stars at the University of Oregon, and Harrington's relationship with Musgrave played a role in his decision to sign with Atlanta.

Harrington will have the most experience of a growing list of candidates competing to replace Matt Schaub, Vick's backup the past three seasons. Schaub was traded to Houston, where he will be the starter.

Harrington is expected to participate in a three-day minicamp that begins today.
