Serving as the top backup QB in Jacksonville isn’t the worst position to be in right now.
The Jaguars would be attractive to any backup quarterback, especially a young one who would basically get the chance to resurrect his career. That holds true for Chad Henne, who was having a decent season in 2011 before he was injured.
Clearly, Blaine Gabbert struggled as a rookie. If that happens again under new coach Mike Mularkey, a player like Henne could have a shot at a renaissance. Henne is scheduled to meet with the Jaguars before visiting the Seahawks.
If Henne gets the chance, a season in Jacksonville could improve his market value and boost the odds that he’ll start again in the future.
