Chad Steven Henne (born July 2, 1985) is an American football quarterback for the Jacksonville Jaguars of the National Football League (NFL). He attended the University of Michigan. While attending, Henne became the second all time true freshman starting quarterback in Michigan history; accumulated a total of 32 wins in regular season play, 8,740 offensive yards, and 87 touchdowns; and in his senior season, led the Wolverines to a Capital One Bowl victory over Florida. He was subsequently rewarded as the game's MVP after throwing for over 350 yards. Henne's professional career began when he was drafted by the Miami Dolphins, fifty-seventh overall in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft. Henne spent most of his rookie season on the bench, being the back-up to veteran quarterback Chad Pennington. In his second season with the Dolphins, Henne started in the last 13 games of the 2009 season after Pennington was unable to play due to an injury.
