Fal­cons cut QB Har­ring­ton

The Covington News - - Sports -

AT­LANTA— The At­lanta Fal­cons con­tin­ued their dra­matic wave of of­fen­sive cuts by re­leas­ing quar­ter­back Joey Har­ring­ton.

The Fal­cons cut Har­ring­ton on Wed­nes­day, only two days af­ter re­leas­ing run­ning back­War­rick Dunn.

For­mer four-time Pro Bowl tight end Alge Crum­pler, of­fen­sive tack­leWayne Gandy and quar­ter­back By­ron Leftwich were re­leased last month.

The re­lease of Har­ring­ton, who started 10 games last sea­son, may in­crease the odds At­lanta will se­lect a quar­ter­back with the No. 3 over­all pick in next month’s NFL draft.

The Fal­cons re-signed Chris Red­man to a two-year deal. Ex­clud­ing Michael Vick, who was sen­tenced in De­cem­ber to 23 months in fed­eral prison, the only other quar­ter­back on the ros­ter is D.J. Shock­ley, who missed last sea­son with a knee in­jury.
