Support For Chad Henne As The Jaguars Starter Within The Organization?

SI.com’s Don Banks writes that are some with the Jacksonville Jaguars organization that believe Chad Henne will beat out Blaine Gabbert for the starting job “by late August.

Head coach Mike Mularkey stated earlier that there was no open competition between Gabbert and Henne, but Banks mentions that this is what “[Mularkey] has to say right now.

Banks believes that Gabbert isn’t ready to take over as the team’s starting quarterback, due to his “fragile condition after a brutal rookie season.” If Henne is indeed able to secure the quarterback job at some point during the season, Gabbert would be left to be a developmental player at best.
