Chad Henne doesn’t much mind a tie. Not at this stage, at least. Henne, competing with Blaine Gabbert for the Jaguars’ starting quarterback position, said it didn’t bother him when the team on Monday announced him and Gabbert as co-No. 1s on the first unofficial depth chart of the 2013 preseason. In fact, Henne said it wouldn’t have made much sense to do anything else. “That’s what (Head) Coach Gus (Bradley) said from the beginning, that it’s going to be a competition to the end,” Henne said Tuesday after a two-and-half-hour 2013 training camp practice at the Florida Blue Health and Wellness Practice Fields.
