The Jags re-signed QB Chad Henne to a 2-year deal worth $8 million.  HC Gus Bradley called the signing “very important.”  He also indicated that Henne is the likely Week 1 starter – even if Jacksonville drafts a QB 3rd overall.  Henne was average last year, tossing for 3,241 yards with 13 TDs and 14 INTs.  But he’s an experienced passer who knows OC Jedd Fisch’s offense.  The Jags certainly need to add weapons, and they could be eyeballing WR Sammy Watkins in May’s draft.  Even if Watkins lands in Jacksonville, though, Henne will remain a poor fantasy option.  We still expect the Jags to select a QB in the draft, but it's unlikely to happen in Round 1.

Speaking at the Scouting Combine on Friday, Jaguars HC Gus Bradley indicated that QB Chad Henne remains the team's top option for 2014.  “Everybody is tagged with, 'Is he a franchise quarterback?'" Bradley said, per  "That's really difficult.  I guess Chad Henne is ours and he's our starter, if we get him re-signed."  That's no strong endorsement, but Bradley implied that the team is trying to re-sign its primary 2013 starter.  He could have easily called it an open competition heading into the new season, especially with Jacksonville picking 3rd in the draft and apparently planning to keep QB Blaine Gabbert for the final season of his deal.  Even if the Jags re-sign Henne, we expect them to draft a signal-caller at some point in May.  We'll see whether that happens.

Jaguars HC Gus Bradley confirmed that QB Chad Henne will start Sunday's game against the 49ers.  QB Blaine Gabbert was a full-go in Wednesday's practice but has been relegated to backup duties.  Henne remains nothing more than a QB2, but his standing atop the depth chart is good news for WRs Justin Blackmon and Cecil Shorts.

Jaguars HC Mike Mularkey confirmed that QB Chad Henne will start Sunday's game against the Titans.  The team really had no choice considering how poorly Blaine Gabbert has played all year, and how good Henne was on Sunday.  Of course, that'll go down as the best game of Henne's career.  He's still not much of a fantasy option.  But if you're desperate in a 2-QB league, he does get Tennessee's 29th-ranked QB defense this weekend.

The Jaguars have signed QB Chad Henne to a 2-year deal.  Henne struggled with consistency and decision-making in Miami, but he certainly has an NFL-caliber skill-set.  QB Blaine Gabbert's lofty draft status essentially ensures that he'll open the 2012 season as Jacksonville's starter, but unless he shows massive improvement, there's a good chance we'll see Henne at some point.  Of course, neither guy figures to be a fantasy option.

Multiple reports have now indicated that the Jets could target QB Chad Henne in free agency. It certainly makes sense. Former Miami HC Tony Sparano is now OC for the Jets, and Mark Sanchez is far from entrenched as the franchise leader. The Jets should be an attractive destination for free-agent QBs given Sanchez's tenuous status.

Dolphins QB Chad Henne will undergo season-ending surgery on his separated left shoulder. It’s to his non-throwing wing, so his long-term outlook shouldn’t be affected (as bleak as it is). Meanwhile, Matt Moore will take over as Miami’s starting QB.  Sporting a career 58% completion rate with 16 TDs and 18 INTs, he managed only 167 yards with a pick in 3-and-a-half quarters against the Chargers last weekend. As inconsistent as Henne was, Moore is a downgrade. The Fins also signed QB Sage Rosenfels today. He’ll step in as the backup and could see a few starts later this season.  It's obviously a situation to avoid in fantasy.  As for Miami's pass-catchers, we'll need to see how Moore distributes the ball.  Brandon Marshall is the only one worth starting for now, and he should be considered more of a WR2.

Dolphins insider Jeff Darlington reports that the team believes QB Chad Henne may have suffered a separated shoulder in Sunday's game against the Chargers.  Henne was unable to return and was spotted in a sling afterwards.  He'll go for a 2nd opinion this week, presumably to confirm the original diagnosis and to decide whether surgery is required.  If it is, Henne's season would be in jeopardy, according to Darlington.  QB Matt Moore is next in line.  He wouldn't be a significant downgrade, but he also wouldn't do anything to spark this Fins offense.

Dolphins QB Chad Henne says he'll be able to play through his left (non-throwing) shoulder injury when the team comes off its Week 5 bye.  "I can rip this arm off, and as long as I can post the ball up I think I can play," Henne said. "I've had shoulder injuries in college and high school and I played through it, so I expect to play through it again."  QB Matt Moore didn't do enough in place of Henne on Sunday to take over as the starter.  Still, Henne is quickly plummeting back towards fantasy irrelevance.  Since an impressive Week 1 performance against the Patriots, he's completed just 54% of his passes with 2 TDs and 3 INTs the past 3 games.

Dolphins QB Chad Henne appeared to suffer a left (non-throwing) shoulder in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Chargers.  He left the field and immediately headed back to the locker room.  We'll update his status when we learn more.  QB Matt Moore has taken over for the Fins.

Dolphins QB Chad Henne completed 10 of 13 passes for 175 yards and a score in Saturday night's preseason game against the Bucs.  The highlight of his night was a beautifully thrown deep ball to WR Brandon Marshall down the right sideline that went for a 60-yard TD.  After a brutal showing in the exhibition opener, Henne has rebounded big-time these past 2 weeks, completing 68% of his passes with 1 TD and 0 INTs.  Most importantly, his chemistry with WR Brandon Marshall looks much better than it did last year.  Henne is locked-in as Miami's starter, although he's still just a desperation QB2 in fantasy leagues.

Dolphins QB Chad Henne bounced back on Friday night after a disappointing exhibition opener.  Against the Panthers, Henne completed 15 of 24 balls for 194 yards.  He didn't throw for any TDs but didn't turn the ball over either.  While Henne missed a few throws, he also did a nice job getting the ball into RB Reggie Bush and WR Brandon Marshall's hands.  He's locked-in as Miami's Week 1 starter, but we'd still bet against him starting all 16 games.  Henne isn't a recommended fantasy option.

Dolphins QB Chad Henne struggled in the preseason opener, tossing INTs on 2 of his first 4 attempts.  He later hooked up with WR Brian Hartline for a 44-yard TD, but it was still a sub-par performance overall.  QB Matt Moore, meanwhile, completed 11 of 18 balls for 123 yards with 2 TDs and 1 INT.  HC Tony Sparano was impressed but stopped short of opening up a QB competition.  "I wouldn't say there is a battle right at this second," Sparano said. "For me it takes more than a few outings and a couple of practices."  Henne remains the heavy favorite to be under center come Week 1, but we'd bet against him starting all 16 games.

Dolphins QB Chad Henne says his relationship with WR Brandon Marshall has improved this offseason.  "We had our ups and downs last year. And some not-so friendly exchanged words but we’ve talked in the off-season," Henne said.  "I’ve been sending him some of the playbooks so he can pick up on that."  We'd like to see B-Marsh working out with his teammates -- something he hasn't done this offseason -- but at least he's been in touch with Henne and has new OC Brian Daboll's playbook.  His chemistry with Henne will be something to monitor this summer -- assuming Henne is Miami's starting QB.

Dolphins HC Tony Sparano says QB Chad Henne "absolutely deserves a chance" to be the team's starter again.  “From our end, does he deserve the opportunity? No question about it,” Sparano said.  The Dolphins have said all offseason that Henne will enter training camp as the starter, but have also made it clear that he'll face competition for his job.  Miami will add a QB or two to the mix through the draft and/or free-agency.

Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland announced Tuesday that QB Chad Henne will have an opportunity to start next season. The Fins will certainly bring in competition after Henne threw 19 INTs and just 15 TDs in 2010. Unless he makes drastic improvements, he’ll continue to limit the fantasy upside of Miami’s offense.

Dolphins QB Chad Henne was benched in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Patriots.  He completed just 5 of 12 passes for 51 yards and a pick.  His tenure as Miami's starter may be over after a disappointing campaign.  QB Tyler Thigpen has taken over.
