Even though he was the 3rd overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, Chad Henne is still slotted as the starter for the 2014 Jaguars, not Blake Bortles. Henne was picked up in the middle of the season when Blane Gibbert went down. Gibbert has since been traded to the San Francisco 49er’s and the coaching staff want to give Henne the opportunity to play a full season. GM Dave Caldwell told ESPN’s Britt McHenry the same on his talk show.
“To be honest with you, probably 2015. We’d like to give Chad this whole year and go with Chad this year.”
The Jaguars open the preseason against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on August 7th. Plenty of great seats and cheap tickets remain!
