Chad Henne signs two-year, $8M contract with Jaguars

The Jacksonville Jaguars are keeping their quarterback depth chart intact.

Chad Henne signed a two-year deal with the Jaguars on Thursday, the team announced. NFL Media's Rand Getlin reported the contract is for $8 million and includes playing time-related incentives.

That's pretty good money for a passer who didn't take a snap last season behind Blake Bortles. The Jags struggled mightily with Henne at the helm early in 2014, but he's a solid veteran backup who reportedly has a good relationship with Bortles, the team's most-important player.

Yes, it's good to be a professional quarterback. Henne just scored a 100 percent raise off the two-year, $4 million deal he signed prior to the 2014 season. This post should really be about the greatness of Henne's agent, but we're in too deep to turn back now.

Blake Bortles was excited about his teammate signing a new deal. He posted this picture on Twitter.
