Jacksonville Jaguars re-sign quarterback Chad Henne

Published Add your comment

The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed quarterback Chad Henne to a two-year extension according to Mike Garafolo.

Garafolo of Fox Sports tweeted earlier: "Chad Henne agrees to a two-year deal to stay with the Jaguars, source tells"

Henne joined the Jaguars in 2012 after three years with the Miami Dolphins. He started 13 games in 2013 after starting quarterback, Blaine Gabbert went down with injury. Henne threw for 13 touchdowns and 14 interceptions last year.

The details of the deal are not yet known but it is likely that the Jaguars would not use much of their valuable cap space on Henne, who at 28 could likely be a veteran backup next season.

The Jaguars have the third pick in the NFL draft and it has been thought by most analysts that they would look at drafting a quarterback with their pick. Henne would then prove to be a valuable rookie backup in a team that is looking to improve on their 4-12 record from 2013.

Garafolo also mentioned that Henne would have been an option for the Houston Texans had he been released. The Texans have the first pick in the draft, but like the Jaguars would have desired a veteran backup in addition to a promising rookie at the quarterback position.
