  Saints | Harrington released    Sat Sep 5, 02:38 PM

Jason La Canfora, of the NFL Network, reports the New Orleans Saints have released QB Joey Harrington, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: So much for coach Sean Payton's pet project. After showing flashes during his time in Atlanta, Harrington failed to catch on in New Orleans and was never really a threat to backup Mark Brunell's job. If anyone was holding out hope for Harrington, you can now officially file him under "Bust".

  Saints | Brunell, Harrington sharing time with second team    Mon Aug 3, 03:23 PM

Pat Yasinskas, of ESPN.com, reports New Orleans Saints QB Mark Brunell and QB Joey Harrington have been sharing reps with the second-team offense so far at training camp. Head coach Sean Payton said the two quarterbacks will continue to share reps and will decide who will be the No. 2 quarterback later in the preseason.

Footballguys view: Harrington has been kept around because the Saints still see something in him. If he can win this job, and something happens to Drew Brees, he could easily be the surprise fantasy QB of the year because of the potent passing offense around him a la Matt Cassel 2008.

  Saints | Brunell, Harrington likely to compete for No. 2 job    Mon Jun 29, 03:11 PM

The Monroe News-Star reports New Orleans Saints QB Mark Brunell and QB Joey Harrington likely will compete for the primary backup quarterback job during training camp.

Footballguys view: Earlier reports about Joey Harrington have indicated that he's failed to impress thus far as the Saints 3rd string QB, so winning the backup job to Drew Brees may be a tough task. We wonder how much Mark Brunell has left in the tank, but the Saints could decide that he'd be a better option than Harrington if Brees were to go down with injury.

  Saints | QB Harrington has failed to impress    Sun Jun 21, 06:41 PM

Jeff Duncan, of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, says that QB Joey Harrington has failed to impress at the Saints 3rd-string QB.

Footballguys view: Harrington was supposed to be a special reclamation project for coach Sean Payton, but so far has been a disappointment in New Orleans after showing flashes during his short stint in Atlanta. The Saints would be in trouble if starter Drew Brees went down with an injury as they'd have to rely on 38-year old backup Mark Brunell.
