Chad Henne was never supposed to be the starting quarterback in Jacksonville but he was thrust into that role for much of the 2013 season.

Henne started 13 games for the Jaguars including all four wins. He will become a unrestricted free agent in March.

While there will be no demand for him as a starter around the league there figures to be plenty of teams willing to take him on as a backup. Speaking with Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times Union the veteran quarterback said he would welcome a return to the Jaguars and coach Gus Bradley in 2014.

Henne called the season “one of my most memorable, just a being a part of it. All of the things that went on, the outcome obviously isn’t what we wanted, winning only four games, but the second half of the season, we did get better and do some really good things.”

The Jaguars are expected to dump failed first round pick Blaine Gabbert this offseason and then draft a quarterback in the 2014 Draft.

Henne could return as a back-up which would be a plus for anyone that the Jaguars draft since he is familiar with the coaching staff in place and can help a youngster adjust to the NFL.
