Tell Chris your opinion.

After months and months of waiting, the Detroit Lions have finally dealt disgruntled quarterback Joey Harrington to the Miami Dolphins for an undisclosed draft pick in next year's draft. The Dolphins were interested in Harrington in case starting quarterback Daunte Culpepper was not healthy enough by the first game of the season. Harrington wanted to play for the Dolphins, because he felt he had a chance to see some playing time if Culpepper were to struggle.

Culpepper is recovering from a knee injury suffered on September 7th, 2005. Harrington never turned out to be the quarterback the Lions had envisioned, and they certainly gave him enough time and talent to develop with. Harrington only compiled an 18-37 record as the team's starter, throwing 60 touchdowns and 62 interceptions during that span. He would have been due a $4 million roster bonus if the Lions hadn't cut him by June 15th.

The Dolphins signed quarterbacks Jon Kitna and Josh McCown in the offseason as possible replacements for Harrington. At the moment, it is believed that Kitna would have an advantage over McCown, but the team likes both quarterbacks.
