Harrington re-signs with Saints as third quarterback
Harrington has spent six seasons in the NFL. He played for Miami in 2006 and for Atlanta last season.
He appeared in 12 games for the Falcons, completing nearly 62 percent of his passes for 2,215 yards, seven touchdowns and eight interceptions.
To make room for Harrington on the active roster, New Orleans waived tight end Buck Ortega and later re-signed him to the practice squad.
