Jaguars could re-sign Chad Henne before free agency starts

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Jaguars general manager David Caldwell indicated it's possible for the Jaguars to re-sign Chad Henne before NFL free agency starts.

The Jacksonville Jaguars will begin making plans for free agency, which begins on March 11, but one of the things they could take care of prior to the start of free agency is re-signing some veterans who's contracts are scheduled to expire.

One of those free agents is veteran quarterback Chad Henne, who the Jaguars could attempt to re-sign before the free agency period begins. In the season ending press conference on Monday, Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell indicated it was "possible" the team could bring Henne back rather than let him hit free agency.

Henne has been the epitome of a "professional backup quarterback" for the past two seasons for the Jaguars, but ended each season as the starting quarterback. His play on the field has left a lot to be desired, but if he's brought back as a backup for the Jaguars it makes a lot of sense.

Personally, I would let Henne hit the open market and weigh the options be it with another veteran free agent  or draft picks in the draft.
