The Jaguars now have their Plan B at quarterback, and only need to fill in Plan A.
According to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports, the Jaguars have agreed to a new two-year deal with quarterback Chad Henne, keeping him out of the unrestricted free agent market this weekend.
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.
