- Mike Garafolo points out that Henne had an option that needed to be picked up on Wednesday, which is why they agreed to a new reworked deal.
The Jaguars have already confirmed the move.
“With nine years of NFL experience, Chad has an abundance of knowledge in professional,” said Jaguars Head Coach Doug Marrone. “Chad provides leadership to our offensive meeting room.”
Henne, 31, is a former second-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2008. He played four years for the Dolphins before joining the Jaguars as a free agent in 2012.
Henne was entering the final year of his two-year, $8 million contract that includes $4.5 million guaranteed and set to make a base salary of $3 million for the 2017 season.
In 2016, Henne appeared in one game for the Jaguars but did not attempt a single pass.
