QB Chad Henne Says Tony Sparano Recruited Him For Jets
With the Jets embroiled in a full-blown quarterback controversy, Jaguars starter Chad Henne said he considered signing with the Jets this offseason, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
Jets offensive coordinator Tony Sparano, who was the Dolphins head coach when Henne was Miami’s starting quarterback, tried to recruit the journeyman to come to New York this offseason as Mark Sanchez’ backup. With Sanchez struggling and trying to fend off Greg McElroy’ challenge to his job, one can’t help but wonder how things would’ve turned out had Henne come to New York.
“Well, Tony called me as soon as free agency opened,’’ said Henne. “Obviously Mark signed his contract before that, but they still were interested and wanted to get me in on a visit.
“But I had two visits already lined up, here at Jacksonville and also in Seattle, so New York kinda would’ve been my third opportunity. But it just didn’t work out. It was more coach Sparano and his offense feeling comfortable with me running that more than anything. Whether it worked out or not, it is what it is.’’

Would be a MUCH, MUCH better option than any of the QB's in NY right now. They might actually win some games. I feel bad for Henne. He had a HELL of a career at Michigan and is a big, strong, good QB but was in a shitty situation last year so he's basically been labeled as a "journeyman" like this article says. Dude has done great in Jacksonville at this point. Deserves a chance on a team that isn't awful. BRING HIM TO PHILLY!
