NFL Rumors: Jacksonville Jaguars re-sign Chad Henne to two-year deal

The Jacksonville Jaguars were said to have some interest in free agent quarterback Michael Vick, assuming they weren’t able to retain their own free agent signal caller, Chad Henne.

That interest in Vick is likely to evaporate as the Jaguars re-signed Henne to a two-year contract, this according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Jacksonville and QB Chad Henne reached agreement on a Two-year deal, per ESPN source.

At this point, terms of the deal have yet to be released though it likely isn’t the most costly contract considering Henne wasn’t among the true elite free agent quarterbacks.

Henne, who started 13-games for the Jaguars last year, will likely stick around as a bridge-gap as Jacksonville will most certainly look into drafting a quarterback in the coming weeks.

The former Michigan product finished the season throwing for 3.241 yards with 13 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.

At worst, the Jaguars secured themselves a fine backup quarterback moving forward or a solid starter who can hold down the fort until they’re ready to give the keys to a young drafted talent.
