The Jacksonville Jaguars continued to stay active in free agency on the second day of the open market. After agreeing to a contract with free agent wide receiver Laurent Robinson, the Jaguars filled the void at the back up quarterback position by signing former Miami Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne to a two-year deal.
Don't know if this is out there, but the #Jaguars signed Chad henne to a two year deal.— Tania Ganguli (@taniaganguli) March 14, 2012
Former back up quarterback Luke McCown is an unrestricted free agent, but the Jaguars were looking to get a younger back up quarterback and someone they felt could push Blaine Gabbert. Henne will not compete for the starting quarterback position, but he does provide a serviceable patch for a few games. Adding Henne should also squash and Tim Tebow speculation that never really had wheels to begin with.
