  Chiefs | Chad Henne may return    Mon Mar 16, 06:25 PM

Free-agent QB Chad Henne (Chiefs) is a player the Kansas City Chiefs are interested in re-signing, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Henne would compete for a backup spot behind superstar Patrick Mahomes if the Chiefs bring him back. The Chiefs offense would be nowhere near as powerful no matter who comes in at quarterback if Mahomes has to miss some time.

Footballguys view: McCoy being inactive could mark him falling out of favor. Darrel Williams and Darwin Thompson have speculative bench value and Damien Williams has a strong hold on the starting job for now.

  Dolphins | Miami interested in Chad Henne    Wed Mar 14, 06:20 PM

The Miami Dolphins are interested in free-agent backup QB Chad Henne (Jaguars).

Footballguys view: With the free agency frenzy winding down, it's time for the backup QBs to get theirs. Henne is a veteran backup, but teams could find better options. Miami clearly wants an upgrade over Matt Moore behind starter Ryan Tannehill. We expect the Dolphins to also select a QB with a premium pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

  Jaguars | Jacksonville not ready to name starting QB    Thu Aug 24, 11:30 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QBs Chad Henne and Blake Bortles could play in the final preseason game, according to head coach Doug Marrone. Marrone said he has no timetable for naming a starting quarterback.

Footballguys view: There's no way to spin this as good news for the Jaguars. If Chad Henne is an upgrade at quarterback then we were already looking at one of the worst offenses in the league.

  Jaguars | Chad Henne to start Thursday    Wed Aug 23, 07:13 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Chad Henne will be the starting quarterback for the preseason game against the Carolina Panthers Thursday, Aug. 24. QB Blake Bortles is also expected to receive some playing time with the first-team offense during the game.

Footballguys view: Henne is competing with Bortles for the starting job. No matter who wins, there's not a lot of fantasy value to be mined from either player. The Jaguars want to run the ball more this year, but they need rookie (and potential superstar) RB Leonard Fournette to be healthy.

  Jaguars | Jacksonville QBs share snaps    Mon Aug 21, 07:01 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QBs Blake Bortles and Chad Henne received an equal amount of snaps with the first-team offense during practice Monday, Aug. 21.

Footballguys view: We feel like Jaguars fans need something to smile about when considering their two options at quarterback. Head coach Doug Marrone is not ready to name a starter for the third preseason game and wants to see them practice Tuesday, Aug. 22, before making a decision.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles not a lock to start    Thu Aug 17, 11:50 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said QB Blake Bortles has to earn the starting quarterback job and indicated QB Chad Henne has a chance to take the job. Marrone said he is looking for the best person to lead the offense.

Footballguys view: That Marrone is saying this after two preseason games is a sign that Bortles is in trouble. Henne is looking like the Week 1 starter unless Bortles turns this around.

  Jaguars | Chad Henne is No. 2 QB    Wed Aug 2, 10:00 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Chad Henne is the team's No. 2 quarterback and will not compete with QB Brandon Allen for the job even though Allen has performed well so far during training camp.

Footballguys view: That might be the case while the team is still mathematically alive for the playoffs, but if the season is lost at any point, they might throw Allen out there to see what they have before deciding whether to invest big in a young quarterback in 2018 - assuming Blake Bortles is a reason the season was lost.

Jacksonville Jaguars impending free-agent QB Chad Henne said he is open to re-signing with the Jaguars this offseason but may want to see if there opportunities for him to compete for a starting job with another team.

Footballguys view: We can't imagine other teams lined up around the block for Henne. If the Jaguars want a veteran backup behind Blake Bortles, then they could decide to just keep Henne.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles enters game    Sun Sep 21, 02:45 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles entered the team's Week 3 game in the second half after QB Chad Henne was benched.

  Jaguars | Chad Henne still the starter    Mon Sep 15, 01:48 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Chad Henne is still the starting quarterback for now, according to head coach Gus Bradley.

Footballguys view: And here we see the stubbornness of Bradley. Henne is a poor starter, and he quite frankly doesn't give the team the best chance to win. Blake Bortles was drafted in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft, and he's the QB of the future. Might as well start playing him now to give him valuable experience.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles whispers begin    Mon Sep 15, 10:03 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles was not considered to play in Week 2 as QB Chad Henne was sacked 10 times in the game. However, head coach Gus Bradley wouldn't comment on whether they will consider starting Bortles in Week 3.

Footballguys view: What are they waiting for? Yes, we know--the team really WANTS to keep him on the bench his rookie year for, um, development purposes (?). The fact of the matter is that Henne is a poor starter, and Bortles could be gaining valuable experience this year. We'll see if the change is made in the near future.

  Jaguars | Chad Henne to start in Week 1    Sat Aug 23, 01:00 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Chad Henne will start the Week 1 game ahead of rookie QB Blake Bortles, head coach Gus Bradley said Friday, Aug. 22.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars have been very clear about their QB situation. Henne will begin the season as the starter, even though Bortles has been impressing in camp and the preseason. At some point this year, we think Bortles will get a chance as the top quarterback.

  Jaguars | Pleased with Blake Bortles' progress    Fri Aug 15, 06:04 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles has impressed the team with his progress in training camp and the preseason so far, according to head coach Gus Bradley.

Footballguys view: The team has to be pleased as Bortles has looked good. The game is not too big for him, and he's looking good under pressure.

  Jaguars | Chad Henne to start Week 1    Fri Aug 15, 02:56 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Chad Henne will start in the team's Week 1 game, according to head coach Gus Bradley.

Footballguys view: Rookie first-round pick Blake Bortles has been impressing during the preseason, but the team is steadfast that he'll begin the season on the bench. Henne is a seasoned vet, but we don't think he can hold off Bortles all season long. If (when) Jacksonville struggles, the team could turn things over to Bortles.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Chad Henne threw for 130 yards and a touchdown in the team's second preseason game against the Chicago Bears Thursday, Aug. 14.

  Jaguars | Chad Henne to play first half in preseason game    Tue Aug 12, 12:20 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Chad Henne will play the first half of the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 14, with QB Blake Bortles playing the second half.

Footballguys view: Bortles needs to start getting reps with the ones before we can think about him starting sooner than later, but his performance in the first preseason game with the backups is a great start.

  Jaguars | Chad Henne is starter    Sat Aug 9, 01:09 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Chad Henne is the team's starting quarterback, head coach Gus Bradley reiterated Saturday, Aug. 9.

Footballguys view: There will be a point this season that Bradley's need to reiterate that Henne is the starter will actually be a sign that he won't be the starter for much longer. We're not there yet.

  Jaguars | Chad Henne not in danger    Thu Jul 31, 01:24 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Chad Henne is in no danger of losing his starting job at this point, according to head coach Gus Bradley. Henne has looked comfortable during practice and is performing well.

Footballguys view: Henne is a seasoned veteran, and the team is turning to him as the starter this year. If Henne struggles, there's a chance that Bortles could replace him later in the season.

  Jaguars | Chad Henne impressing    Mon Jul 28, 02:54 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Chad Henne has been stellar in the team's first three days of training camp, according to head coach Gus Bradley. Bradley added that Henne looks comfortable and has shown a mastery of the offense.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars are going to hold first-round pick Blake Bortles on the bench if they can. If Henne comes through as a solid starter, then we may not see the rookie in 2014. However, if Henne starts to struggle, the team could mix Bortles into the lineup towards the end of the year.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles could start preseason game    Mon Jul 21, 03:01 AM

Although the Jacksonville Jaguars coaching staff is still high on QB Chad Henne, coach Gus Bradley said QB Blake Bortles could start a preseason game. "It would be late in the preseason if he did, and we'll see how things go," said Bradley. "We're really excited about Chad and what he's going to do so we'll see how it goes with him until that fourth preseason game."

Footballguys view: The Jaguars have been clear since day one that they'd like to keep Bortles on the bench this year. We'll see Chad Henne as the team's starter to begin the year, but Bortles might get a few starts near the end of the year if the team feels he's ready.

  Jaguars | Chad Henne will start    Thu Jul 3, 10:40 AM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Chad Henne is the no-doubt starter, according to beat writer Ryan O'Halloran. O'Halloran predicts rookie QB Blake Bortles could be the starter by Week 8 against the Miami Dolphins. Another possibility is Week 12 after the bye week.

Footballguys view: Henne is going to get his start in an offense which isn't quite built yet and we don't see him as worthy of a roster spot, rating him as a almost a QB4. Bortles has intriguing upside but you can grab him on waivers well after your fantasy draft and even then he's no more than an emergency fill-in.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles will receive first-team reps    Thu Jun 26, 01:05 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles will receive first-team repetitions in training camp to experience 'that type of environment,' according to Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley.

Footballguys view: It's a wise move for the Jaguars to prepare Bortles as quickly as he can to be the starter. We're likely to see Chad Henne begin the year as the starter, but Bortles is the eventual starter. At the very least we think the Jaguars will start Bortles a small handful of games at the end of the season to get him ready for 2015.

  Jaguars | Chad Henne has support    Thu Jun 26, 12:55 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Chad Henne has support within the organization and the team is rallying behind him, according to Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley.

Footballguys view: The team really wants Bortles to sit for a year to make sure they don't repeat their error in rushing Blaine Gabbert into the lineup before he was ready. For fantasy purposes, it's unlikely he will have much fantasy value as anything but an emergency start so don't burn a roster spot on him.
