The Jaguars now have their Plan B at quarterback, and only need to fill in Plan A.
Henne performed ably in relief of, and eventually instead of Blaine Gabbert last season. His solid play down the stretch coincided with the Jaguars looking like an actual NFL team rather than a punch line.
The Jags are still going to add a quarterback, and Henne knows that. So his willingness to accept the situation, and play well in spurts, will prove valuable to the team as they figure out which one they draft.
His addition could eventually end the Gabbert era as soon as they draft another one, though Gabbert’s contract mean’s there’s no hurry to make a move now.
