In the NFL’s preseason, like fashion, one day you are in and the next day you are out. That pretty much sums up sexy and scruffy Joey Harrington’s career with the Atlanta Falcons.
He was there last season to start 10 games after Michael Vick went to prison. Earlier this season, he was pushed aside in favor of Matt Ryan, the rookie with the six-year, $72 million contract. Now, he’s been dumped altogether, missing out on the third QB slot for the Falcons.
Quarterback D.J. Shockley, wide receivers Brian Finneran and Adam Jennings and tailback Jason Snelling made the cut. Quarterback Joey Harrington and guard Kynan Forney didn’t.
The Falcons got their roster to the NFL limit of 53 on Saturday, choosing to keep local product and fan favorite Shockley as their No. 3 quarterback to back up rookie starter Matt Ryan and No. 2 quarterback Chris Redman.
Harrington, the third overall pick in the 2002 draft and a starter for 10 games last season, was the odd man out in an open quarterback competition that completely shook up the Falcons’ quarterback rotation from last season.
