Jacksonville Jaguars Sign Quarterback Chad Henne
The Jacksonville Jaguars have signed Chad Henne to back-up Blaine Gabbert.
According to Tania Ganguli of The Florida Times-Union, the Jaguars and Henne agreed to a two-year deal on Wednesday.
Henne has been the starting quarterback for the Miami Dolphins for the past three seasons, but lost his starting job when he injured his non-throwing shoulder early last season. In his four seasons with the Dolphins he completed 60.7% of his passes for 7,114 yards and 31 touchdowns.
He will provide the Jaguars with an option at quarterback this season if Gabbert continues to struggle. He is also a significant upgrade over the Jaguars back-up quarterback last season, Luke McCown.
The signing of Henne should also put an end to any discussions of the Jaguars attempting to acquire Tim Tebow in a trade.
