Chad Henne given green light to audible


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne said he has the green light from offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch to audible as much as he wants to, reports the Florida Times-Union.

"He’s pretty much given us all the tools. Whatever we see out there, if we have to throw it every down because they’re giving so many guys at the line of scrimmage, we’ll throw it," Henne said.

Henne said he has a better grasp of the offense in Year 2.

"Jedd has been putting a lot in our shoulders, more audibles, but it’s really just taking ownership of it. If I see something out there and I check out of something, he gets excited. It’s exciting for us because it shows him that we’re understanding the defense, understanding the offense and getting in the best plays that will work," Henne said.


Jags GM lays out quarterback plans


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2014) Jaguars general manager David Caldwell wants quarterback Chad Henne to start all 16 games this season, reports the team's official website.

The report says Caldwell expects rookie quarterback Blake Bortles to be the top backup. When asked if Bortles could start, Caldwell said, "For us it’s really going to be our team's maturity and Blake's maturity."


Chad Henne starting, Blake Bortles learning


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/26/2014) The Jaguars continue to say that Chad Henne, and not No. 3 overall pick Blake Bortles, will start at quarterback this season, reports NFL.com.

Henne started 13 games last season and threw for 3,241 yards, completing 61 percent of his passes, with 13 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.

"I think it's been out there that our beliefs and our feelings is that we feel so strongly about Chad and he's going in, I think the team has really rallied around that," Bradley said. "Now, it has provided an atmosphere for Blake to really go out there and ask a lot of questions and gain a lot of information from all the quarterbacks that are in.

So how is Bortles doing with the transition from college to the NFL?

"He's doing a really good job, he's having more good days than days that maybe he's struggling, like all rookies have," Bradley saidd. "We're very excited about his development."


Blake Bortles would get shot if Chad Henne gets hurt


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/24/2014) The Jaguars plan to ease in rookie quarterback Blake Bortles, but he would be next in line if Chad Henne got hurt, reports the Florida Times-Union.

The report says it's "a guarantee" Bortles would be next in line if Henne was injured even though the Jaguars don't want to rush Bortles into action. Ricky Stanzi would be the only other quarterback candidate if Henne got hurt.


Despite Jags' claims, Blake Bortles could be Week 1 starter


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2014) Although the Jaguars say Chad Henne will open 2014 as the starting quarterback, CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora believes No. 3 overall pick Blake Bortles will establish himself "as the best quarterback on their roster in the preseason," prompting the team to start him Week 1.

"We're obviously a long way off, but Henne primarily has been a backup for a long time, and if the third overall pick looks anything like what you hope, even early on, then I could see Henne holding the clipboard again when real games start," La Canfora wrote.


Chad Henne still expected to start over Blake Bortles


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) Even though the Jaguars drafted rookie quarterback Blake Bortles at No. 3 overall in the NFL Draft, the team remains committed to starting Chad Henne this season, reports the Florida Times-Union.

And that's OK with Bortles.

"To be able to sit for a year or two years, I'll be able to absorb, to learn, to be a sponge, to soak everything up," he said. "Chad has been there and doing it for years. It's something I look forward to."


Jaguars surprise with Blake Bortles at No. 3


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/8/2014) With the No. 3 pick in the NFL Draft, the Jaguars selected quarterback Blake Bortles from Central Florida.

Standing at 6-foot-5 and 232 pounds, Bortles posted 60 total touchdowns over his last two seasons (47 passing) with 6,339 yards on 490 of 750 passing (65.3 comp. pct.) over 26 games.

Chad Henne is expected to open the season as the starter, but Bortles can compete for the job in training camp. He is clearly the quarterback of the future for the Jaguars, and Bortles was the first quarterback taken in the 2014 NFL Draft ahead of Johnny Manziel and Teddy Bridgewater.


Even if Jags draft QB, Chad Henne still starter


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/1/2014) The Jaguars are planning to select a quarterback in the upcoming NFL Draft, but ESPN reports Chad Henne will still open the season as the starter.

The report says it is why they signed Henne to a two-year extension in March. Whoever the Jaguars draft will be asked "to learn the offense, adjust to the speed of the NFL game and develop his skills."

The report also adds "the offense belongs to Henne, and it's the right move for the Jaguars."


Bradley: Chad Henne will open as starter


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/7/2014) Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said quarterback Chad Henne is likely the starter even if the team drafts a quarterback at No. 3 overall, reports the Associated Press.

Henne signed a two-year, $8 million contract Friday with a $1.5 million signing bonus.

by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Report: Deal with Chad Henne coming soon


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/7/2014) Chad Henne and the Jaguars will reportedly agree to terms on a new contract before Saturday's free-agent window opens, the Florida Times-Union reports based on a tip from "inside EverBank Field." Despite a mediocre 2013 the Jaguars would like to bring Henne back in 2014. 

Over 13 starts Henne completed 60.6 pct. of his passes for 3,241 yards and 13 touchdowns with 14 interceptions. 


No tag for Jaguars, again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2014) For the second straight year, the Jaguars won't use the franchise tag, reports the Florida Times-Union. Running back Maurice Jones-Drew and quarterback Chad Henne are the biggest names headed to unrestricted free agency.

While the team hopes to sign Henne before free agency starts March 11, Jones-Drew is expected to test the market. 


Jaguars, Chad Henne expected to reach deal before free agency


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2014) The "best guess" is the Jaguars and Chad Henne will reach a contract agreement before the quarterback hits free agency March 11, reports ESPN.com. The websites notes Henne is the best quarterback on the roster and would serve as a good mentor to the quarterback Jacksonville drafts.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Gus Bradley wants Chad Henne back for leadership


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2014) Although the Jaguars plan to draft a quarterback or two, coach Gus Bradley reiterated it's important to re-sign free agent quarterback Chad Henne.

“I thought he did a really good job leading our team," Bradley said, per the Florida Times-Union. "The competition that took place with him and Blaine [Gabbert] during OTAs and minicamp and training camp, he didn’t really flinch through the whole process and when he got his opportunity, he took advantage of it and we thought he made really good progress.

"We think, having a year under his belt, he will have a better understanding of the system and we’re really excited as far as what he brought to us leadership-wise.”


Jaguars owner: We could draft two quarterbacks


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/31/2014) Though he plans to reach out to 2013 starter and impending free agent quarterback Chad Henne before the open market begins in March, Jaguars owner Shad Khan said that "everybody knows" his team will draft a quarterback and "maybe two" in May, per the Florida Times-Union. The Jaguars own the third selection.

Henne started the last 11 games and performed well at times. He finished the year having completed 61 percent of his passes for 3,241 yards, 13 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.


Talks between Jaguars, Chad Henne could start soon


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/28/2014) The Jaguars and quarterback Chad Henne could start negotiating a contract extension in the next few weeks, reports ESPN.com. An impending free agent, Henne started 13 games in 2013 and threw for 3,421 yards and 13 touchdowns with 14 interceptions, becoming the first Jags quarterback to surpass 3,000 passing yards since David Garrard in 2009.

Chad Henne wants to return as Jaguars starter


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/30/2013) Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne, an impending free agent, said he wants to return to the team and would welcome competing with Blaine Gabbert and any quarterbacks Jacksonville brings in, reports the Florida Times-Union. Henne said he enjoys the culture of the team and it's a good fit for him.

In 15 games, Henne completed 60.6 percent of his passes for 3,241 yards and 13 touchdowns with 14 interceptions. He finished strong, throwing nine touchdowns against five interceptions in the last five games.


Chad Henne held to one touchdown Week 17


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Jaguars QB Chad Henne was limited to one touchdown Week 17.

Henne finished the day with 30 completions on 51 attempts for 331 yards. He found Kerry Taylor on a 14 yard pass in the fourth quarter. He also had one rushing attempt for zero yards. He also managed to throw one interception. Henne finished the year with 13 touchdowns.


Another two touchdowns for Chad Henne


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne continued his surprising production Week 16 against the Titans. Playing without star wide receiver Cecil Shorts for a second straight game, he threw two touchdown passes for a fourth straight game, hooking up with tight end Marcedes Lewis on a 4-yard throw in the first quarter and connecting with wide receiver Mike Brown on a 7-yard toss in the second.

In all, he completed 24 of 34 passes for 237 yards. He did throw an interception but likely would have finished with better passing numbers if the Jaguars weren't so conservative with their 13-6 halftime lead. In the second half, he completed only 9 of 13 passes for 56 yards in a game the Jaguars ultimately lost 20-16.

Though Henne has been the Jaguars' primary quarterback since Week 6, these last four games are his only four with multiple touchdown pases. He'll look to make it five Week 17 at Indianapolis.


Chad Henne figures to take a back seat


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/19/2013) Even though he's coming off back-to-back-to-back games with two touchdown passes -- the only times he's thrown two touchdown passes all season -- Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne is still one of the more inadvisable starts in Fantasy for Week 16 against the Titans.

For starters, he had arguably his worst performance in a season with no shortage of bad ones when the Jaguars last faced the Titans in Week 10, throwing for 180 yards with two interceptions and no touchdown passes. He isn't the only quarterback to struggle against the Titans this year. They rank 10th against the pass, allowing 225.9 yards per game, and have given up the fourth-fewest Fantasy points to quarterbacks.

The Titans are much more vulnerable to the run, ranking 23rd in yards allowed, so whether Maurice Jones-Drew or Jordan Todman starts at running back for the Jaguars, Henne figures to hand off the football plenty.

None of Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard and Nathan Zegura rank him among their top 24 quarterbacks for this week, which is typical. He's nothing more than a last resort in Fantasy.


Chad Henne throws two touchdowns Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne tossed two touchdowns Week 15 against the Bills.

Henne finished 21 of 36, for 237 yards and two scores. He also ran the ball four times for 22 yards. Henne was limited by Buffalo's strong pass rush. He was sacked five times, but had to rely on the short passing game on other passing plays. Because of that, running back Jordan Todman led the team with eight targets. Henne was also forced into throwing two interceptions due to the Bills rushers. 

Henne will take on the Titans Week 16.


Chad Henne facing poor matchup Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013) Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne is facing a below-average matchup Week 15 against the Bills.

Buffalo has done a solid job against opposing quarterbacks, limiting them to 17.62 Fantasy points per game. The team has allowed 25 passing touchdowns, so they are susceptible to big games, but they typically balance that out by picking up some turnovers. The team has 18 interceptions and lead the league with 44 sacks. 

Henne has shown a little more upside the past two games, throwing two touchdowns in both games. He's had more opportunities to score, but the team has opted to run trick plays where Maurice Jones-Drew and Ace Sanders have thrown touchdowns. The team has focused on the run game more over the last two games, which has also prevented Henne from throwing for many yards. He continues to be a questionable Fantasy starter.


Chad Henne solid in another win Thursday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne led the team to a third straight win Thursday, as they topped the Texans 27-20 in Week 14.

Henne didn't rack up a huge yardage total despite throwing the ball 27 times, as he completed just 12 of those passes. He finished the game with 117 yards, but was able to avoid any mistakes, while throwing for two first-half touchdowns.

Henne still has more interceptions (10) than touchdowns (eight) on the season, but he does have a four-to-one ratio over the last two games. He added a season-high 33 rushing yards Thursday, on four carries. The Jaguars next game is set for Week 15 against the Bills. 


Chad Henne has rough Week 14 matchup


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/3/2013) Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne completed 22-of-40 passes for 195 yards and two touchdowns in Week 13 against the Browns. He was intercepted once. The 17 Fantasy points were the most he's scored all season.

Henne's Week 14 opponent, the Texans, are fresh in his memory -- the teams faced off in Week 12, when Henne was held to 239 yards and no touchdowns. There's not much hope here for an improvement -- the Texans have allowed the second-fewest passing yards this season (188 per game) and have held opposing quarterbacks to one or fewer touchdowns on five occasions.

Henne's always capable of that out-of-nowhere 300-yard game, but it's probably not happening in Week 14 against one of the league's stingiest pass defenses. He can be left on the waiver wire in most formats.
