Jags Chad Henne: Rookie QB’s Should Sit a Year

Jacksonville JaguarsThe 2014 NFL draft is likely to produce a handful of first round quarterback selections. Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater, UCF’s Blake Bortles, Derek Carr from Fresno State and Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel are among those expected to be those players.

Jacksonville with the third pick overall signed Chad Henne to be their QB for 2014, but that doesn’t mean the Jags wont select a QB with that pick. Henne has some advice for those willing to listen, let them sit for a year.

“I had a pretty good preseason (in 2008), but there was a lot to learn and I’m pretty thankful I sat out that first year, learning a lot from Chad (Pennington) — the film work, the prep and going through the whole process,” said Henne. 

“You go from the Senior Bowl to the combine and then you really never take a couple months off,” he told the Times-Union. “You need a break to get your mind at ease and get accustomed to being an NFL player.”

Well what else would you expect a starter to say with the possibility of his potential replacement hanging over his head? Lets keep it real , siting out a year didn’t seem to help Henne all that much or he likely wouldn’t be in Jacksonville right now and may well still be in Miami.

If you want a QB draft him, if he is good enough,  let him play.
